Province lags behind, says industry group calling for fair pricing for bulk buyers
New Brunswick Liquor needs to raise the bar when it comes to its “outdated’ liquor policies, says a national food industry group.
The latest report card from Restaurants Canada says a lack of action is the main reason the Crown corporation’s mark dropped from C- in 2015 to D this year.
The association, which represents restaurants, bars, caterers and others, said New Brunswick has made plenty of promises but done little follow-through.
Regulations that require the industry to pay retail prices for alcohol are outdated and should be changed.
