Maple Roch, the maker of Fine Canadian organic maple syrup products created in Summerland B.C., is the first client for the newly established boutique media and marketing agency, signing their agreement on Nov. 13, 2019.
“Maple Roch is a small business and strongly believes in supporting other small entrepreneurs,” says Roch Fortin, founder and CEO of Maple Roch. “HEK Yeah Media is a brand new business and I think it makes a lot of sense for us to give a chance to young entrepreneurs as we strongly believe in the talent they will bring to the table for us. I really like their enthusiasm and the ideas they have already brought forward.”

Maple Roch was founded by Fortin, a retired RCMP officer of 32 years. It was while Fortin was stationed in northern New Brunswick and got to know the people who make maple syrup, that he developed a passion for it and a desire to help them. After relocating to Summerland in 2011, he wanted to liase the market in New Brunswick and help open new markets.
HEK Yeah Media is focused on helping Maple Roch grow its business and community contributions.
