LCBO Small Supplier of the Year 2011
Each year the Liquor Board of Ontario, (LCBO) hosts a large awards event called the ELSIE awards (a play on the name LCBO) where they honour their trade partners (suppliers and agents) with awards of recognition for innovation, creativity, commitments to customer service, social responsibility, environmental initiatives etc. To receive 2 prestigious awards from the largest buyer of beverage alcohol in the world and a retailer with over 620 stores was quite an honour.

2011 LCBO Environmental & Ongoing Green Initiatives Award
They also inspired one of the LCBO's leading sampling partners to make the switch to biodegradable PLA cups by leading the way.
These responsible decisions, among others, have translated into less energy use, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and better opportunities for recycling. And so we salute Blackfly Beverage Company with this year's Elsie for Environmental Commitment.
