Some Armenian producers mislead their consumers by means of fake marks.
Yerevan. Some Armenian producers of bread, confectionary, honey, cereal and tea mislead their consumers by means of fake
marks, reports the State Commission for Protection of Economic Competition of Armenia.
The Commission specifies that some companies use unsanctioned eco-marks saying that their products are ecologically
friendly, which is an instance of unfair competition.
"The law says that eco-marks can be used only by companies having relevant certificates. Since the companies had no such
certificates, their marks have misled consumers. So, their actions are regarded as unfair competition," the Commission says, urging
consumers to report once they suspect any company of using a fake mark.
