Erin, where does maple syrup come from? It’s a question I’m asked pretty much…never. But for the purposes of this blog, let’s just say it’s a frequent Q, to which I give the A: Vermont. Maple syrup comes from Vermont.
Maple Grove Farms is America’s #1 producer of pure maple syrup, and the brand has been around since 1915. It now falls under the delicious leadership of my awesome client B&G Foods, which means I was lucky enough to get to work on the new packaging and upcoming website refresh (stay tuned for more on that soon). Here’s a peek at the restage in action:
Packaging Copy: Transformed
The design transformation brought new life and a more modern aesthetic to this historically traditional brand. I did the same for the copy, which took on a more spirited tone with shorter, punchier sentences and a focus on our farm and sustainable factory. The update is more “storyteller” and less “salesman,” which helps give the voice depth and credibility.
It all started with a family farm and a whole lot of handmade maple candy.
Since 1915, Maple Grove Farms® has tapped into nature’s sweetness with one mission in mind: farm-crafted flavor. Our maple syrup is made with one simple ingredient, and our standards rise higher than even the tallest maple tree. So, when you have a craving for maple made right, make Maple Grove Farms® your delicious destination.
