Ontario adding Beer and Cider to 95 additional grocery stores
Ontario’s Ministry of Finance said today an additional 95 grocery stores will be eligible to sell beer and cider – 200 are currently licensed in Ontario and a total of 450 will be eventually.
“We’re expanding beer, cider and wine sales in Ontario. Small producers are benefiting from greater exposure in the marketplace, while consumers are enjoying more choice and convenience. By working together, we’re enabling opportunity for local businesses and communities to experience more craft and VQA products,” said Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance.
Approved grocery stores who bid in this round can begin stocking beer and cider in April 2018.
