A FAMILY BUSINESS
The Brien sugar bush was founded in 1956 in Sainte-Anne de la Rochelle, a village nestled in the heart of the Canadian countryside. At this time, the family patriarch Sylvio Brien operated a small sugar bush that focused on making hand-crafted products with the highest commitment to quality.
A PROCESSING PLANT
The modest "sugar shack" has since been upgraded and now, almost half a century later, is one of the largest maple syrup a processing plants in North America. Although they head a company that exports to several continents, Mario Fortier and his team still remain grounded in respect for Brien's family values and the land. They are dedicated to providing their customers with all-natural products of exceptional quality, made in the greatest respect for tradition.
