Leader Evaporator Inc. is the largest producer of the supplies for gathering maple sap and birch sap, and of syrup making equipment in the United States. It has been operating in Vermont already since 1888. Drawing upon its years of experience, Leader Evaporator today has a key position in advancing the sugaring industry, and is generally considered the most cutting edge enterprise in its field in the USA. In cooperation with scientific research institutions they develop ever more economic equipment, gentle on the environment.
Leader Evaporator supplies and machinery are made of high quality food grade materials. Their workshop produces new generation reverse osmosis machines, evaporators and everything else for making maple syrup and birch syrup on the spot. It is much harder to make birch syrup than maple syrup, as the sugar content in birch sap is only 1%, compared to the 2% in maple sap. It is exactly thanks to the advances in innovative technology that the production of natural gourmet birch syrup has become not only possible, but also commercially viable.
