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 Australianwineto compete on a level playing field.

Mr Littleproud went on to say “With $185 million worth of Australianwineexported 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 Australianwinesales in the province of British Columbia.

Australianwinehas the fifth largest share of the Canadianwinemarket behindwinesfrom France, Italy, the US andwinesdomestically produced in Canada.
