Vermont Maple Sugar Makers’ Association

Founded in 1893, the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers’ Association (VMSMA) is one of the oldest known agricultural organizations in the country. While the Vermont maple industry has changed a bit since then, the mission of this non-profit organization to be an advocate for the Vermont maple industry and its producers has not. Here in Vermont, VMSMA has always believed in maintaining the highest standards in the world for the production and quality of pure maple products, while still maintaining a prosperous maple industry and a working landscape that future generations will enjoy.

The VMSMA also helps to promote and protect the branding of pure Vermont maple products. One way they do this is by making available to their members an assortment of plastic retail maple syrup containers along with a large selection of other packaging and promotional supplies. Check-out our “Benefits & Services” page to see the many great things only our members get to enjoy. Each year VMSMA helps to host maple schools throughout the state in order to educate the maple producers of Vermont and other maple producing regions on new and more effective ways to produce quality maple syrup. This organization has become known as the “official voice” for Vermont sugarmakers and represents them in many local, state and international organizations.
