These guidelines have been developed by the Canadian Vintners Association with a Technical Committee comprised of industry stakeholders, winery representatives and food safety consultants.  The CVA acknowledges the committee members for their outstanding contribution to the CVA Food Safety project.

We also extend our appreciation and gratitude to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for their financial support of this project and to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for completing a review of the documents and sharing their comments.
