The Tennessee Grocers & Convenience Store Association (TGCSA) on Jan. 20 will host a training seminar for the state’s retailers that plan to bring wine to their shelves in July 2016.
These retailers “will have to navigate a complicated set of rules and regulations,” according to TGCSA. One requirement for retailers is to certify clerks and managers in an ABC-approved Responsible Vendor Program (RVP).
As part of the training seminar in January, Kim Pouncey of TopShelf Responsible Beverage Service will review the many requirements for food store wine licensure, and she will demonstrate Top Shelf’s proprietary RVP training and certification programs.
This event will benefit any food retailer that hopes to sell wine and is ideal for decision makers, trainers and HR personnel, TGCSA says.
The seminar costs $25 and will be held from 10 a.m.-noon at the Goodwill Career Training Center, 937 Herman Street, in Nashville.
