Vermont laws governing the production and sale of pure maple syrup grant the authority to regulate to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food and Markets. The regulations that have been developed as a result of those laws cover everything from the precise definition of pure maple syrup to what information must be included on the label and everything in between. Sugar makers or processors that bottle others syrup must be familiar and follow these regulations or risk product being removed from sale and or fines. Among these regulations is the stipulation that: "No maple syrup may be labeled as being a Vermont product, or labeled in any manner which would imply that the maple syrup was produced in Vermont unless the maple syrup is 100 percent pure maple syrup which was entirely produced within the state of Vermont". If a producer or processor is unsure if their label meets the requirements they may request a review by the Agency of Agriculture.
