Important notice to our customers

We would like to inform you that following the recent announcement, which implies the closure of non-essential shops and services at least until April 13th, we will close our Ham-Nord manufacturing plant. For now, our maple stores would be included in the list of essential services, which would allow us to leave them open. It is essential to continue to provide service to maple producers, and we believe that it is equally important to be a good corporate citizen in keeping with the rules of lockdown and social isolation, to end this virus. Our orders, service and reception/shipping departments will therefore remain operational, but by limiting contacts to a minimum. To protect our employees and customers, access to our stores will now be forbidden to customers. So we ask that you place all your orders over the phone before showing up, and we will prepare your order that can be picked up at the loading dock. The numbers to reach us are 819-344-2288 for Ham-Nord, 418-938-0548 for Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha! and 802-868-6732 for Swanton.

Thank you for your understanding and collaboration!

UF

Ultrafiltration technology now found in maple production!

It has been more than 10 years since H2O Innovation use Ultrafiltration technology into the water treatment by membrane filtration market. We are definitly pioneers in introducing this technology and transposing it to the field of maple syrup production. It was in 2014 when the first UF machine got into a sugar house. As of today, we now have 3 of those operating in the maple market.

Here are some important benefits of this technology:

– Ultrafiltration allows the sap or concentrate to pass through the pores of the membrane, but it limits the passage of bacteria and suspended matter. This process thus makes it possible to purify the sap or the concentrate in order to increase the preservation time and improve the purity of the product. Currently the technology is used by producers who sell sap (around 2 Brix) for bottling, and to some customers who want to buy a concentrate of maple sap that is in between 20 and 45 Brix as a sweetening agent. Maple sugar (not evaporated in the form of concentrate) is a natural and organic sugar with a low glycemic index. Demand in the food market is very strong for natural sugar, and even more so for maple sugar.

– Many producers are selling their concentrate to companies who are using this as a sweetening agent substituting refined sugar.

– Some producers use filtered maple sap for bottling, particularly for sale of the recently popular bottled maple sap water.

Testimonial from satisfied new customers

We recently received a message of appreciation from satisfied customers, we would like to share it with you all:

Hello,
We are very happy and satisfied to have chosen the H2O Innovation maple equipment for the realization of our project to build a sugar house.

We were very well advised and followed by your maple representatives Marco Leblanc and Steeve Lessard, they were both very competent and professional. We greatly appreciated their valuable advice and they took the time of teaching us to use of all the equipment, including the vacuum, the separator, the evaporator and the maple syrup press.

They are very concerned about their work and they were very generous with their time.
We had a great experience for our first sugaring season, even though the past season was not very favorable.

We will recommend your products and exemplary service with great enthusiasm!
