ESCUMINAC, A CERTIFIED ORGANIC BUSINESS
Since 2003, Érablière Escuminac’s maple syrup has been certified organic by Ecocert Canada, an independent organisation accredited by the Conseil des Appellations Réservées et des Termes Valorisants (CARTV) which acts as the competent authority in the name of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Quebec (MAPAQ). This certification guarantees that Érablière Escuminac respects to the letter the strict standards of the specification at all levels of production: forest management, tapping the trees, sap collection, storage, processing and equipment cleaning.
An innovator in the birch syrup sector (yellow birch), Érablière Escuminac takes very seriously its organic certification, on local, national and international levels. That’s why the business has been working hand in hand with Ecocert Canada to create a specification exclusively for production of this precious nectar. Indeed, no such standard existed before Érablière Escuminac launched its production of birch syrup (yellow birch).
In 2003, the business was certified organic by Ecocert Canada, an organisation accredited by the CAAQ and the USDA to award organic certification.
