Coombs Family Farms, a division of Bascom Maple Farms, is exhibiting March 8-11 at the 2023 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California.
Visitors to NPEW can learn more about Coombs Family Farms’ high-quality maple products offering great taste, along with many nutritional and functional benefits today’s consumers are seeking.
“Our team is excited to meet with Natural Products Expo West attendees and share a taste of our natural, organic and clean label sweetening and flavor solutions,” said Arnold Coombs, executive director of sales and marketing.
“Many people are familiar with the great taste of maple, but not all are aware of its various benefits. Maple is one of the least processed sweeteners available and is high in antioxidants and full of nutritious minerals. It is also a sustainable sweetening and flavor solution, as we maintain environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and sustainable maple sugaring practices at our farms. We look forward to sharing how our maple syrup and sugars can provide natural and sustainable sweetness and flavor to various food and beverage applications.”
According to Mintel’s “U.S. 2022 Sugars and Alternative Sweeteners” report, the sugar and sweetener market is forecasted to reach $5,288.2 million by 2027. While consumers continue to be conscious of their sugar intake, they gravitate toward familiar sweeteners to meet their needs. The familiarity of maple has helped to drive its popularity, with 28 percent of consumers reporting using maple syrup in the last month.
Attendees who visit NPEW booth No. 2021 can learn more about Coombs Family Farms’ maple syrup and maple sugar products, made with 100 percent pure maple syrup from New England and Canada.
Offering both pure and organic options, these clean label, sustainable sweetening and flavor solutions have consistent flavor profiles and offer many labeling benefits, including natural, organic, sustainable, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher, vegan and allergen-free.
“At Coombs Family Farms, we are committed to producing high-quality maple and protecting our forests,” Coombs said.
“For eight generations, our family has provided certified organically sourced 100 percent pure maple syrup to retailers and manufacturers and has believed in the goodness of nature. By choosing Coombs Family Farms products, not only do you choose flavor that keeps consumers coming back for more, but you also help to support a healthier and more sustainable society.”
