Buy Pommies Cider or Pommies Farmhouse Cider at the LCBO and take home an apple tree

 

(Toronto, ON – April 18, 2017) Pommies Cider Co. is back for their fifth Apple Tree Giveaway, taking place at eight LCBO locations across Ontario beginning April 28. Pommies will be at each location sampling both their Original and Farmhouse ciders. Consumers who purchase 12 bottles or cans of Pommies Cider and/or Pommies Farmhouse Cider will leave the store with a gala apple tree. To this date, Pommies has put over 500 apple trees back in Ontario’s soil through this campaign.

“The campaign not only highlights the fact that Pommies ciders are natural products made from 100% local Ontario apples, but it also showcases just how well apples grow in Ontario,” said Nick Sutcliffe, owner, Pommies Cider Co. “Consumers get to drink our cider while planting trees and reaping the harvests for years to come.”

“The Ontario Craft Cider segment has continued to demonstrate great growth in the LCBO,” said Mark Wilson, Acting Category Manager, Beer & Cider, LCBO. “The LCBO is proud in its commitment to support this campaign that encompasses the local business community, and encourages green initiatives.”
