Belarusian Authorities Seize Six Tons of Counterfeit Butter
Belarusian Ministry of Internal Affairs officials in the city of Barysaw in central Belarus have recently put an end to the production and sale of butter infringing several trademarks of well-known Belarusian dairy producers.
The Iow-grade butter was brought from Russia and stored in the town of Orsha in northeastern Belarus. It was then packaged and labelled with trademarks of Belarusian dairy producers and advertised and sold all over the country.
The authorities seized more than 5.7 tons of counterfeit butter, as well as packaging material, computers and accounting documents. The estimated damage caused to the right holders is approximately EUR 29,000 (USD 35,000).
