Riverland wine producers will soon have less trade barriers in selling wine to Canada.

Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud welcomed the Canadian Government’s agreement to allow Australian wine to compete on a level playing field.

Mr Littleproud went on to say “With $185 million worth of Australian wine exported to Canada in 2019, this is a welcome outcome for our producers and the economy,”

The outcome adds to the positive results of the settlement reached between the Australian and Canadian governments in April 2019 to remove unfair restrictions on Australian wine sales in the province of British Columbia.

Australian wine has the fifth largest share of the Canadian wine market behind wines from France, Italy, the US and wines domestically produced in Canada.
