In recent years, organic products have gained in popularity. Grocery stores are offering more and more organic products to their customers and these customers are consuming more and more of them. Studies show that the consumption of organic products in Quebec has increased by 6% since 2020 (1).
If you didn't know, Quebec is the leader in organic food in Canada (1). In fact, cafés, bakeries and sandwich shops are also following this trend and are now offering healthier food and a wide variety of organic beverages. Consumers are looking for more natural and organic options and businesses must respond to this demand.
At Maple 3, we've also noticed changes in consumer attitudes. More and more people are telling us that they have changed their eating habits. For example, they say they prefer maple water to sports drinks, which are far too sweet and contain unnecessary additives such as food coloring. We get the same kind of feedback for our sparkling maple waters. For an equally delicious taste, more and more people see a great advantage in replacing sugary sodas with our sparkling waters, which are very low in calories and have no added sugar.
