When you do it at the governmental level you call it "reserves": like oil reserves, or some such.
Well in Canada they have the maple syrup reserve.
The only problem, somebody has been stealing it.
Jacqueline Deslauriers, Finance and Development, June 2013 (hat tip MR)
It was a heist the Pink Panther would have been proud of: over several months, a gang of thieves surreptitiously siphoned off hundreds of thousands of gallons of maple syrup worth more than $18 million from Canada’s global strategic maple syrup reserve.
That’s right: a global strategic maple syrup reserve. If you have never heard of it, you are not alone. Few had until the 2012 theft became public knowledge. The reserve is a Canadian cartel: something of a one-nation version of OPEC for maple syrup.
