Who we are

I am a dad, an engineer, Canadian and also Swiss since 2018.

Having grown up in a rural area with farmers, I wanted to find a way to get closer to agriculture again. In 2015, we decided to get into the business of maple sugaring and purchased the “Erablière des Aigles” a year later, a sugarbush in the Canadian province of Quebec.

The original idea was for me to keep working as an engineer and manage the farm from Switzerland with the help of my parents on the farm. It was however soon clear that it was not possible to combine both jobs with the workload on the farm and the interest that people in Switzerland had. So, in 2018 we decided that I would focus entirely on the maple syrup business, in Canada and in Switzerland. This is when MapleSugar.ch was launched.

We import our own maple syrup directly from our farm in Canada and produce all of our maple syrup derived products in Switzerland. The production of the maple syrup derived products is done in Switzerland.
