SPEAK UP AND WIN!

  

CHECK 25

LCBO’s year-round Check 25 program is a core responsible retailing program that helps prevent sales to minors by checking the ID of anyone who looks under 25. Materials now in our stores feature the tagline “25 or younger? Have your I.D. ready” to build further awareness among customers of our policy and to help ensure that alcohol is not sold to minors.

RESPONSIBILITY STARTS HERE

In Ontario, it’s illegal to consume alcohol before the age of 19. It’s also illegal for anyone to supply alcohol to minors.

LCBO’s poster Responsibility Starts Here reminds would-be purchasers that when staff have reasonable grounds to believe someone is buying for a minor, the Liquor Licence Act gives them the right and responsibility to refuse the sale.

LCBO LAUNCHES NEW SWEETNESS DESCRIPTORS

LCBO recently launched a new “sweetness descriptors” program providing useful tasting information to help customers when purchasing red and white table wines. This program – a first for LCBO – consists of two elements. The first is a new, science-based descriptor system that reflects how dry or sweet a wine tastes. There are five sweetness descriptors: Extra Dry (XD), Dry (D), Medium (M), Medium-Sweet (MS) and Sweet (S). The second element is a listing of the actual sugar content as grams of sugar per litre. Both of these elements are displayed on redesigned bin tags on store shelves and in-store signs to help guide customers.

LCBO LAUNCHES GIVING BACK IN OUR COMMUNITY HOLIDAY FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

Starting December 1, the public can help support LCBO’s Giving Back In Our Community in-store prompted and donation box fundraising campaign by making a donation at all LCBO stores throughout Ontario. LCBO customer service representatives will also invite customers to add a $2, $5, or $10 donation to their purchase until January 4, 2014.

These donations benefit Ontario’s four children’s hospitals and MADD Canada.

The children’s hospitals provide critical, specialized care to Ontario children and use the funds to purchase medical equipment in addition to supporting alcohol education, research and injury prevention programs.

MADD Canada uses the funds to produce and distribute its School Assembly Program where a compelling film is screened for 1,050 Ontario schools at no cost. More than half a million students are encouraged to make responsible choices and not drink and drive.
