Coombs Family Farms is the number one organic maple brand in the natural and grocery channels, owning two out of the top three organic maple SKUs on the shelf. While other organic and pure maple brands are introducing high-end specialty applications, such as maple infused-spirits and water, Coombs Family Farms is focusing on attributes such as family-friendly convenience with its new Maple Stream product.
“Kids love maple, and there’s something inherently wholesome about a New England tradition and truly natural sweetener,” said Arnold Coombs, seventh generation sugarmaker. “Parents are wanting convenience, but they’re also looking for unrefined sugars and unprocessed food in general.”
For more than seven generations, Coombs Family Farms has been making pure, organic maple in New England. Coombs Family Farms sources additional maple from over 3,000 small family farms in the U.S. that share its commitment to quality, environment stewardship and sustainable forestry management. By purchasing their syrup, and bringing it to market, Coombs Family Farms supports other small farmers and builds local, rural economies.
According to IRI, the U.S. Organic Maple market exceeded $20MM in 2017, up 16 percent from 2016. Conversely, the Conventional Maple market experienced only one percent growth landing at 88MM.
In recent years, health benefits have been associated with maple consumption, including
controlling blood sugar, better brain and liver health, reducing chronic inflammation, and producing a healthy gut biome. More than 54 compounds with antioxidant activity and potential health benefits have been identified, which is double the amount previously reported. Several of these studies were presented in April 2017 at the 253rd annual meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the largest scientific society in the world. The symposium was organized by Dr. Navindra Seeram, who has been studying the health benefits of maple since 2009 from his laboratory at the University of Rhode Island. Additional studies are underway.
Coombs Family Farms Maple Stream comes in a 7-oz recyclable can that streams out mess-free, portion-controlled organic maple syrup. The syrup is not atomized into a fine mist and contains no flammable proponents. Maple Stream will be available nationwide in groceries and other retailers for Q4 2018 with a SRP of $7.99.
