CCP issues show cause notice to Shainal Foods.

ISLAMABAD -- The Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) has issued a show cause notice to M/s Shainal Al-Syed Foods for imitating the branding of National Foods Limited.

A statement issued here Tuesday said that CCP conducted an enquiry after receiving complaint from National Foods Limited alleging that Shainal Foods was preparing, packing, marketing, supplying and selling various food products using a trademark and logo imitated from National Foods.

The company also informed that the colour scheme and design of the packaging of Shainal Foods' products was similar to that of the packaging of National Foods' products, which could mislead the consumers.

The enquiry report concluded that prima facie Shainal Foods has resorted to the fraudulent use of logo, packaging, colour scheme, and design of National Food's products, thus potentially harming the business interest of National Foods as well as misleading the consumers.

The CCP has directed Shainal Foods to reply in writing to the show cause notice within 14 days.
