LCBO TO REMOVE RUSSIAN-PRODUCED PRODUCTS IN RESPONSE TO ATTACK ON UKRAINE
February 25, 2022 – Toronto – The LCBO supports the Provincial and Federal governments in condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
In addition to Canada’s sanctions against Russia, the Government of Ontario has sought LCBO’s support in opposition to Russian actions against Ukraine sovereignty.
Following government directive, effective immediately, all products produced in Russia will be removed from LCBO sales channels, including 679 LCBO stores across the province, lcbo.com and LCBO Convenience Outlets.
As LCBO wholesale customers, grocery stores and licensees make their own decisions about the availability of Russian products, however they will no longer be able to order these products until further notice. We will support our valued partners by accepting the return of any Russian-produced products.
The LCBO stands with Ukraine, its people, and the Ukrainian Canadian community here in Ontario.
