A fake ice-cream producer detected in the capital

HA NOI - A big case of counterfeit Trang Tien ice cream, Viet Nam's most popular brand, was yesterday detected in Hoang Mai District by Team 14 of the Market Watch Department of Ha Noi.

According to a team's official, the Trang Tien 25 Technology Joint-Stock Company sold ice cream products mimicking that of Trang Tien Ice Cream Joint-Stock Company.

He added that as many as 4,500 fake ice cream sticks and over 143 kilos of Trang Tien's packets were seized after the inspection.

Doan Van Quyet, 35, director of the company, admitted to faking the ice cream products of Trang Tien Ice Cream Joint-Stock Company.

The official said that all the fake ice cream will be destroyed and the company will be fined for their violations.

According to Hoang Dai Nghia, captain of the team, Trang Tien's ice cream brand-name is so popular that many producers try to fake Trang Tien's ice cream products, which causes great damage to the company and consumers' health. -VNS
