Earlier today, the Government of Ontario 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. The following press release was issued earlier today.
Products being recalled include:
· Russian Standard
· Baltika 7
· Legend Of Kremlin Premium Russian Vodka
· Beluga Russian Luxury Vodka
Existing products will be warehoused until further notice, and the LCBO will also be pausing any purchase of Russian-made products until further notice.
As LCBO wholesale customers, our grocery partners and licensees, will make their own decision about the availability of Russian products, however they will no longer be able to order these products until further notice. We will support our partners by accepting the return of any Russian-made products.
