Default Quality Assurance Workshop - Eganville, ON

Want to make quality maple syrup? The Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association is hosting it's next Quality Assurance Workshop on February 20th in Eganville, Ontario. This workshop will help you learn what constitutes “quality” maple syrup; and the techniques and best practices for producing quality maple syrup. Topics covered will include boiling, density measurement, filtering, grading, packaging, sugarhouse design, sanitation and implementing a quality assurance program that matches your individual needs.

Sessions will be informative and interactive, with a panel discussion to provide opportunities for questions and knowledge sharing. You will gain confidence in getting the syrup just right and gain efficient tips that will save labour, time and costs.

We welcome both beginner and experienced maple syrup producers, regardless of the size of your operation. A basic knowledge of maple production would be an asset. Familiarity with the OMSPA Best Practices Manual (BPM) will be beneficial. Registration information and workshop agenda is attached.

Over 50 producers now booked for this event. Will hopefully meet a few SBI folks there tomorrow. In case you are wondering a limited number of "at the door" registrations can be accepted (mostly a lunch issue).
