At Drop Caramel, Maude and her team are working hard on extending a reuse program for their syrup bottles and hope to be able to offer this program locally in the future. High five! They favour glass over plastic and are always open and keen to learn about environmentally friendly supplies and procedures. Because their lifestyle is so anchored in nature they’re very sensitive to its value and protection.
When people gift their caramel to a loved one, Maude says it perpetuates their own tradition and feeds her dreams. Hearing someone say, “Your caramel sauce is like childhood in a jar,” is the greatest reward she can get. With each new fan, retailer, or coffee shop the fire to keep going is stoked inside.
Did you know that Drop Caramel offers free delivery throughout the Bow Valley? They actively support and promote community values by marketing their product as the perfect gift. (And we agree! Speaking from experience…it’s always a winner in the tasty gift department.)
Over the years, Maude and her family have been involved with our local Francophone school Notre Dame-des-Monts, the Canmore Skating Club, the Canmore Illusion Gymnastic Club, RMCC, The Canmore Indoor Climbing Club, the Bow Valley Dirtbag Runners, the Bow Valley Trail Culture running club, Five Peaks Adventures, the Alpine Club of Canada and are avid supporters of local plays, shows, festivals and events.
Drop Caramel is excited to be joining with other entrepreneurs through CanMore Together and maintains strong relationships with the shops that carry their product, always collaborating with them for promotion and product development.
To Maude, “supporting local” means to encourage, showcase, promote, and to buy from locally owned or operated businesses. It also means supporting programs, initiatives, and organizations that are part of our community. She believes it’s more than just actions, it’s a lifestyle!
