CMSPM - Awarded Fall 2015 Maple Awareness Campaign Grant
by CMSPM August 6th, 2015

The Commercial Maple Syrup Producers of Michigan (CMSPM) is pleased to announce it has received a $9100 grant to be used for a Fall 2015 Maple Syrup Awareness Campaign. “This grant aligns well with the CMSPM’s goals of increasing awareness and consumption of Michigan maple syrup” stated Chairman, Craig Waldron. “Current consumption of maple syrup is less than 2 ounces per average household in Michigan. We hope that by educating the consumer about the many nutritional benefits that maple syrup has to offer, that producers will see more activity around their sugarhouse and as a result, they will see an increase in their sales.”

The CMSPM is a non-profit organization serving maple producers of all sizes with an interest in being a part of the growing maple industry. Through the support of its members, CMSPM has been able to address some of the maple industry’s most pressing needs, including increasing public awareness and consumption of maple syrup as well as increasing tap count.

The Michigan Department of Agricultural and Rural Development (MDARD) awards grants through a competitive application and review process. The purpose of the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) is to solely enhance the competitiveness of Michigan’s specialty crops.

About Commercial Maple Syrup Producers of Michigan (CMSPM) – A recently formed association of commercial maple syrup producers formed to promote, encourage, and support the sustained growth of all aspects of the Michigan Maple Syrup industry.

Congratulations. Hopefully it will result in more syrup being sold. That is a win for Michigan as well as the rest of the maple world.
