Set/Subset Hierarchy Changes
Each year the LCBO reviews, reclassifies and retires Sets and Subsets. The LCBO has made changes to the hierarchy primarily impacting the wines portfolio, and more specifically how Vintages SKUs are managed at the subset level. Most Vintages subsets have now been combined into LCBO wines subsets and as a result, the former Vintages Package F will no longer be offered. Vintages products will now be included in various packages including A and B, as well as packages C and D at the subset level. A summary of these set subset changes can be found on pages 3-9 of the SOD packages and fees document.
Buyer attribute added
LCBO buyer attribute has been added to the existing allproducts file. The list of LCBO buyers can be found in our reference materials under the Glossary of Terms Document and the updated record layout can be found in the SOD Record Layout. Please update your records accordingly.
Agent specific data continues to be provided free of charge, while fees for other packages have been adjusted for the first time since 2016. Packages A and B will now include Vintages data as will most wine subsets in packages C and D.
