Will we be saying goodbye to maple syrup soon?

A sudden drop in Canada’s major maple syrup reserves is causing concern: The amount of maple syrup in a reservoir in Quebec has dropped to a 16-year low of just 6.9 million pounds. According to experts, this is due to increasing demand and changes in the weather, which disrupts production.

In the short term, the decrease in reserves will not significantly affect the price or availability of maple syrup. In Quebec, where most of the world’s maple syrup production is concentrated, the amount in reserve has not been this low since 2008.

The production of maple syrup reacts sensitively to weather conditions, and the yield has decreased due to the warmer springs of recent years. At the same time, demand for maple syrup is increasing, and Canada exported record amounts of maple syrup in 2021.
