Wine industry wonder about effect of new labelling rules (by Monioque Beech, St Catharines Standard)

Wine industry wonder about effect of new labelling rules (my Monique Beech,
St Catharines Standard)

New federal food labelling guidelines requiring producers to remove foreign
ingredients from "made in Canada" products should not affect the country's
wine industry, the president of the Canadian Vintners Association says.

Meanwhile, the Grape Growers of Ontario says the new guidelines could offer
some clarity for consumers who find current Canadian wine labels confusing.

Last week during a stop in Beamsville, Prime Minister Stephen Harper
announced rules that would require 'product of Canada' goods to contain all
or virtually all domestic content.
Currently, food companies are allowed to call a product "made in Canada" if
51 per cent of the production costs were incurred here and the final
transformation of the product was in Canada.
