PMI-RSSC February Virtual Chapter Meeting with Moni Minhas


Topic: Managing the largest Cidery project in the history of Saskatchewan

This presentation revolves around one of his latest successful projects of making and managing the largest Cidery in Saskatchewan. The demonstration will scrutinize steps involved in the project like paying proper attention to CFIA, Food Act, and SLGA rules on labeling, production, etc. It will also focus on how the Minhas lab created the cider base and how the team came up with 10 types of ciders. It will emphasize on ‘branding’ and the work involved in creating a new brand. Mr. Minhas will also give tips and tricks on Marketing and PR that have helped him throughout his career.
