LCBO Pricing

LCBO Pricing does have its complexities and it is absolutely key that all variables are accounted for in an offering. The Quoted price to the LCBO must include all potential variables some of which include:

  • Margins 
    -Supplier Profit
    -Potential Packaging adjustments to adhere to LCBO product packaging standards
    -Agent Commission/Promotion via a pre-negotiated contract on a product offering basis and/or all offering basis.
    -Potential Debit Notes if sales targets are not met (special page to be added soon... please request details via contact page in the meantime...)
  • Freight Rate
    -A key element and variable that affects the landed retail. In our calculations, we prefer to assign a liberal freight rate anticipating potential consolidation costs. It is favorable to quote FOB where the freight rates are better fixed.
  • Case Configuration
    -The LCBO usually assign a freight rate by the case  The preferred configuration is 12 units per case.
    For example, a 6x750ml case configuration may incur a freight rate of twice the cost of a 12x750ml case configuration. For a wine, this could augment the landed retail by one dollar.
