The Sugarman of Vermont was acquired in 1991 by Tony Sedutto, and the company quickly became the go-to supplier of maple syrup with Executive Chefs in the food service and hospitality industry based on their:
- Superior quality and unique packaging that provided solutions to bulk and portion control opportunities
- Quality, speed, and value within a private label
- All provided with their signature white glove customer service.
The Sugarman kept acquiring new customers annually, earning key partnerships in 1993 and 2008. The company even achieved growth during the World-wide Maple Syrup Shortage of 2008, doing so via their innovative maple syrup reserve to address supply shortfalls along with their incredible relationships with farm family partners.
In 2012, Tony’s daughter Kerry took the reins of the company as CEO, where she sits today providing the same Sugarman quality along with more items and within new channels of distribution.
