Michigan Liquor Control Commission to hold Business Meeting April 6, at 10:30 am in Lansing to Discuss Supply Chain Issues

March 8, 2022  -- The Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) will hold a business meeting on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at 10:30 a.m. at the Lansing Office of the Commission, located at 525 W. Allegan Street, Lansing, MI  48933. The public can attend the hearing via a teleconference call or in person. 

The purpose of the meeting is to address ongoing supply chain disruptions resulting in out-of-stock liquor products (not a liquor shortage) -- a situation that is affecting liquor licensees and their businesses. The Commission will provide an update on what's going on in the U.S. and global marketplace due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Discussion will focus on several contributing factors including the following:  suppliers inability to keep up with demand; increased shipping costs; glass and aluminum can shortages; port congestion and transit delays; damaged or expired goods due to long delay times; tariffs; product aging requirements; overstocking; worker shortages; and, growing and shifting trends among consumers.     

Licensees, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, government officials - and any other individuals who may be affected by the issue of supply chain disruptions - are welcome to attend.
