During a school field trip to New York’s northern countryside, 11-year-old Joshua Parker learned the curious method of making maple syrup.
At age 15, Joshua took what he learned and began crafting maple syrup the way he believed it should be. And after years of experimenting in small batches and learning through constant research and testing, he believed in his product enough to start what is now Parker’s Real Maple.
In early 2016, Parker’s Real Maple proved itself as a company that will be known for its innovation through the launch of their now-popular products Maple Butter and Organic Maple Cotton Candy. And with confidence in what his business is capable of, Joshua took his vision to the Sharks on ABC’s show for entrepreneurs - “Shark Tank”.
And with the world watching, Parker’s Real Maple introduced its products country-wide after landing deals with Costco and Whole Foods Market in 2017.
Now happily married, he and his wife, Alessandra, have teamed up to spread the real goodness of maple to more people in more ways.
