By 1500 AD, the Mic Mac American Indians spread throughout Northeastern Canada: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. They certainly were among the first native people encountered by European settlers.
The peaceful Mic Mac tribe got its name from the way they greeted settlers, “nikmaq” meaning “my kind friend” in Mic Mac language. No wonder they were the ones who taught the new settlers the skill of tapping maple trees and boiling down the sweet sap to obtain syrup. Descriptions of the collection and evaporation of maple sap by the Eastern Canadian Mic Mac Indians were noted in the journals of the early explorers since 1606.
The maple production process today has been modernized, but 40 liters of sap are still required to produce 1 litre of pure maple syrup.
Our company was established in 1972 in Denmark by R. C. Vermont. Was it a coincidence or fate that R. C. Vermont got into the maple business?
We could not ignore this call of fate and named our first brand verTmont, which means green mountain, wherefrom maple forests abound in North East Canada and in the state of Vermont
Today we are a dedicated family company, run by the Vermont family. Our bottling plant, warehouse and offices are situated 20 km north of Copenhagen
