(Nov. 22/13) After years of lobbying by CRFA and the restaurant industry, the Prince Edward Island Liquor Control Commission (PEILCC) has introduced a comprehensive wholesale beverage alcohol pricing program for licensees. Beginning Dec. 1, 2013, licensees receive special pricing for 24-pack bottles of beer, a 10 per cent discount on draft beer, spirits and ready-to-drink products, and a 13 per cent discount on all wine purchases.
CRFA recognizes the strong support and leadership of Finance Minister Wes Sheridan and Tourism Minister Robert Henderson. Their leadership has made P.E.I. the first controlled jurisdiction in Canada to introduce a comprehensive wholesale pricing program for licensees. We appreciate their recognition of the foodservice industry’s value-added role in building the social and economic fabric of the province.
