Chinese manufacturers "faking" products of Dabur, ITC; undermining the legitimacy of brands - The Economic Times

NEW DELHI: Chinese manufacturers are increasingly "faking" popular Indian products of consumer goods giants such as Dabur and ITC, undermining the legitimacy of brands and causing losses worth as much as $5 billion annually, officials said.

"A lot of counterfeit Dabur products are made in China. We have conducted at least 20 raids in China but no proper action has been taken by the Chinese," said Ashok Jain, general manager of finance at Dabur India, the country's fourth-largest FMCG firm. He said such fake products manufactured in China with "Made-in-India" tag are supplied across the world, mostly in India and African countries.
