Maple Valley: Your Main Squeeze at Expo West 2016

EASY, SQUEEZY! MAPLE VALLEY CO-OP OFFERS ORGANIC MAPLE SYRUP IN KID-FRIENDLY SQUEEZE BOTTLES

Reusable, Recyclable Bottle Features No-Mess Silicon Valve; Maple Syrup Growlers join Glass Packaging Lineup

CASHTON, Wis. (February 29, 2016) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Move over, honey bear! Maple Valley Co-op, provider of family farmed, fair and organic maple syrup, is pleased to offer their maple syrup in new, convenient Squeeze Bottles that make breakfast time Easy-Squeezy. Featuring an innovative cap with no-drip silicon valve, Maple Valley Squeeze bottles will be available for sampling March 10-12 at the Natural Products ExpoWest – Anaheim Hilton HOT Products Exhibits, Anaheim, California, at Maple Valley’s booth #H814.

Born from an idea pitched by a Maple Valley co-op member’s grandchildren and developed by their mother, the squeezable design eliminates sticky mess and waste and makes portion control a breeze. (No need to worry that your kids will dump half a bottle of syrup on their pancakes!) The squeeze bottle makes cooking with maple syrup more convenient and encourages its use as a condiment—drizzled on oatmeal, yogurt, salad, toast, or adding a bit of maple goodness to your morning coffee.

Maple Valley expects Squeeze Bottles will be available nationwide in food cooperatives, natural food stores and major grocery chains beginning in March.

For maple syrup aficionados who prefer the look and feel of glass, Maple Valley Co-op offers 1 ounce “nips”, 8oz and 12oz jugs, pint and quart decanters, and recently introduced 64- and 128-ounce glass “Maple Syrup Growlers.” They also offer syrup in BPA-free HDPE jugs from 8- to 128 ounces and bulk packaging for ingredients and foodservice. In addition to Maple Syrup, Maple Valley produces organic Maple Cream, Maple Sugar and Maple Candy. All Maple Valley products are certified organic, non-GMO, Vegetarian/Vegan, Certified Kosher, Gluten-free and Paleo compliant.
