In 2002, after consultations with some 2,000 maple syrup producers across Quebec and a unanimous vote by their delegates at an annual general assembly, the Policy with respect to the maple syrup producers’ sales agency came into effect.
The sales agency:
- Receives all Quebec maple syrup packaged in large containers for bulk sale
- Acts as a sales agent for maple syrup in large container formats (over 5 litres or 5 kg)
- Establishes terms of payment for maple syrup producers
