The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist

is an informal name for a months-long robbery between 2011-12 of nearly 3,000 tons of maple syrup, valued at $18.7 million (2012 Canadian dollars) from a storage facility in Quebec. The facility was operated by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (French: Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Québec, FPAQ) who represent 77% of global maple syrup supply [1], and have been compared to a cartel [2]. Adjusted for inflation, this heist was the most valuable in Canadian history.
