On your Mark ! New LCBO regulatory labelling requirements due July 15, 2020

Key regulatory changes impacting beverage alcohol suppliers

All alcoholic beverages sold in Canada, regardless of their distribution channel, will be required to include a lot code identifier on their packages. A lot code is defined as an identifier that can be used to trace a defined quantity of product that was manufactured, prepared, produced, stored, graded, packaged or labelled under the same conditions.

Lot codes must be clearly and prominently shown on the selling unit and must be readily discernible and legible to the customer. A lot code can be numeric, alphabetic or alphanumeric. A production date, packaging date or “Best before/Meilleure avant” date can be used towards a lot code. The lot code is an aid for the producer and consumer to help mitigate risk. Please find a summary of LCBO regulatory updates here.
