MOSCOW, May 20 (RAPSI) – Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has fined Manchester Group Ltd 250,000 rubles (nearly $4,000) for unfair competition in using SWISS ORIGINAL trademark misinforming consumers about the chocolate production source, a statement of the watchdog reads.

The brand combining with an image similar to the Swiss flag gave the impression that the chocolate industry was based in Switzerland, the FAS stated.

According to the information published on the product packages, SWISS ORIGINAL chocolate bars were produced in the Yaroslavl Region with the use of cacao beans gathered in Mexico, Ghana, Guatemala, Ivory Coast and Africa, the statement reads.
