To ensure uninterrupted access, you must renew and pay the subscription fee by Friday June 26, 2020.

Grocery Reporting Changes
The SOD program recently expanded grocery reporting to include units shipped to individual grocer banners. Due to a recent realignment of grocery banners, the reporting layout has now been modified from 9 data fields to 8 data fields for packages A, B, C, D, E, F and K (Sobey’s and Farm Boy have been merged). For additional information regarding record layout changes
please visit here.
Set/Subset Hierarchy Update
Each year the LCBO reviews, reclassifies and retires Sets and Subsets. The LCBO continues to evaluate the existing Set/Subset hierarchy and at this time NO changes will be made to the existing Set/Subsets for the 2020/21 subscription year. Please refer to the attached Set/Subset list for reference.
