Canadian Organic Maple syrup is consumed and enjoyed in many parts of the world including Asia, Europe, Middle East, United States and Canada.
Total length of piping used at Canadian Organic Maple is nearly 1,000 kilometers (620 miles).
Approximately 140,000 liters of Maple syrup is processed each season at Canadian Organic Maple. Since it takes 40 liters of sap to produce 1 liter of syrup, that means over 5,600,000 liters of sap is collected each season. That’s enough sap to fill more than 2 Olympic sized swimming pools, or more than 14,000 average sized bathtubs!
Depending on the size of the tree, some trees can have 2 taps.
About 20 liters of sap is harvested per tap per season.
