The Maple Treat Corporation team congratulates the Canadian Space Agency and Astronaut M. St-Jacques for the success of the mission on the International Space Station!
The invitation by the Canadian Space Agency to supply our products including our Maple syrup cream cookies for Mr. St-Jacques’ mission on the International Space Station was greeted with pride by our employees.
All proposed foods were first evaluated by the Space Agency’s Operational Space Medicine Group according to well-established criteria. For example, a long shelf life, do not contain alcohol and not be in liquid form. Color, smell, taste and ease of consumption were also taken into consideration.
