POWDERED ALCOHOL The Federal Trade and Tax Bureau (TTB) has recently approved the labeling for powdered product known as Palcohol. The Commission retains serious concerns over the safety and utilization of this product. See letter.
Supplier, Wholesalers, Retailers:: Please be advised the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission has received information that Supplier & Wholesaler organized Industry Educational Seminars are including travel and lodging costs directly or indirectly for certain retail licensees attending and participating. This type of expense coverage is not allowed at State Level or Federal TTB Level. An example of indirect: Wine Industry Educational Seminars conducted in conjunction with grape growers and producers in the Napa Valley Area as well as others have available lodging accommodations on their locations. As part of the education seminar package lodging costs are being commingled in the final costs for retailers attending and paid for by first or second tier or combination of both. In this instance reasonable commercial lodging costs must identified and split out in the package or activity and paid for by the retailer. Allowable coverage costs are very limited to nominal hospitality during the event and after. Please review very carefully Commission Rules & Regulations, Chapter 6, Licensee Operations part 016.04 found on page 149 of the Law Book to avoid any possible citation. This type of activity will be under the microscope when Industry Field Audits are being conducted in the near future. Thanks for your industry attention to this important compliance matter. The Commission continues its mission to insure a level playing field in the retail market place. If you have any questions or if you want me to review any planned educational activity, please advise me accordingly.
