For many producers, direct-to-consumer (DtC) shipping is top of mind these days, with ever-increasing consumer expectations for online ordering and shipping of just about everything — not to mention the pandemic’s continued impacts on the on-premise trade.
DtC shipping is a great channel for growth, but cider producers entering the market must account for key compliance concerns to succeed in DtC shipping while avoiding the fines and other penalties that can result from non-compliant shipping.
Please join us for a look at DtC shipping compliance essentials for cideries. Topics will include:
- The current state of shipping cider direct-to-consumer
- The rules that govern DtC shipping, from licensing requirements to tax remittances
- How cider producers can create effective and compliant DtC shipping programs
Webinar attendees will gain a basic understanding of DtC shipping laws and how to apply them to their own programs.
