UFCW Local 247 members working at BC Tree Fruits were delighted to learn their Apples & Hops cider won a gold medal at the recent North American Cidercraft Awards. BCTF cider

Their Apples & Hops cider won a gold medal January 5 at the North American Cidercraft Awards, where judges, experts and restaurant buyers blind-taste more than 300 ciders over the course of two days. Three Canadian provinces and 18 U.S. States were represented.

Out of a seasonal membership of between 350-550 members, about a dozen UFCW 247 members now work in cider production, and this number has been growing with the success of their Broken Ladder cider products, which have no added sugars or additives and use all-local Okanagan fruit.
