The Vermont Maple Syrup Company was founded in October 1916 by Fletcher N. Johnson in Essex Junction, Vermont. Its industry was maple syrup and its headquarters were in Essex, Vermont (1916-1923), St. Johnsbury, Vermont (1923-1927) and Burlington, Vermont (1927-1928).

F. N. Johnson sold his controlling interest in the firm to George C. Cary in 1919. In 1926 the company was acquired by the recently-formed American Maple Corporation, a firm established by F. N. Johnson. American Maple changed their name to Vermont Maple Syrup Co. in 1927. In October 1928 the company was sold to Penick & Ford, Ltd. who continued to manufacture "Vermont Maid" syrup until its acquisition by the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in 1965. Operations were moved from Burlington to New Brusnwick, New Jersey in 1975. The brand was sold to B&G Foods, Inc. in 1997.
