Quality Assurance

As one of the world's largest beverage alcohol retailers, the LCBO sells more than $3.5 billion of wine, spirits and beer annually. Every product is tasted, tested and certified by the LCBO's Quality Assurance (QA) department. In fact, the QA department conducts more than 400,000 laboratory tests and tastes more than 5,000 products each year.

The LCBO's QA department has earned an international reputation for accuracy and reliability. Its beverage alcohol laboratory was the first in North America to achieve dual ISO accreditation (ISO/IEC 17025, ISO 9001:2000) ensuring that QA Certificates of Analysis are accepted worldwide.

Besides serving internal client groups, the QA department also performs chemical, microbiological, physical, and sensory testing for external clients, such as manufacturers, suppliers, and agents. This testing is fast, accurate, confidential, and competitively priced.
