LCBO NISS Product Page

Here is a wine submission example. The Product Page (4 parts) is required for LCBO’s general (regular) list.


The Product Page (wine example) for Vintages (3 parts),  requires slightly less data.


Our SQT (Submission/Quote Template) takes care of what we need.

LCBO NISS (New Item Submission System)

The LCBO’s New Item Submission System (aka NISS), is a collaborative site available to the LCBO management, the  Supplier and Agent. 

Site Objectives:

  • LCBO Categories and Divisions such as (Wines, Spirits, Beers, Vintages, …) publish their need requirements which includes desired landed retail pricing, pre-submission and submission deadlines, etc… Currently there are no costs associated with pre-submissions or offerings, however, some requirements are necessary, such as a strong track record in other markets, key accolades, a market support program, etc…
  • A supplier can offer their products on the NISS site via an agent such as Lacey’s.  
  • If a product is accepted to proceed, the site is also used to formulate a contract between the LCBO and the supplier on the products pricing, product packaging requirements, terms of payment, etc…

For the pre-submission process, there are three key pages we need to populate in for a pre-submission to be accepted. Our Submission/Quote Template (SQT) covers most required information, however, images of packaging and/or labels can be uploaded for the buyers to assess.

  1. Supplier Information Page (LCBO Vendor #, Address, email…)
  2. Product Profile Page (Category, varietal, accolades…)
    -This area also includes an area to upload images of labels/packaging, etc…
  3. Product Details (Pricing, Pallet Configuration, Product Weight, Case Dimensions, etc…)
