The reserve is there to stabilize the price and supply of maple syrup, and to ensure that we’ll never run out when we need it.

While this all seems pretty ridiculous and hilarious, the secret stash is actually pretty serious business. In fact, ounce-for-ounce, the syrup is worth more than oil!

Canada’s Global Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve is built up by Quebec’s maple producers, who are required to donate a portion of their product to the reserve every year.

As the province produces more than 70% of the whole world’s treacle supply, you can be confident that there’s plenty of it stored in the stash.
