As you know we at aria foods are dedicated to bringing the best of indigenous products to you, sourced from partner communities we know and work with from around the world. These communities are active in advocating for the rights of their people and the land they occupy.
Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation who are the proud suppliers of Awazibi Maple Syrup recently sent a letter to the Government of Canada and Ontario reminding them of the need to respect First Nations traditional lands and to listen to them when contemplating developments in or around their territories.
Often these communities are on the front-line of environmental advocacy, not because it's trendy but because industries like mining or forestry will have a long term affect on the health and well-being of the community and the environment they live in. Having alternative development options to these industries like maple syrup production not only ensures more sustainable income but provides a viable alternative to more destructive industries. So yes by buying Awazibi Maple Syrup you are directly supporting a better future for us all.
