  • I worked over 3 years to get Parle Product biscuits and confectionery into a very large

    Supermarket Coles in Australia. We imported one shipment from them. We got a Trade Mark on

    the name of Parle to protect us. When we asked them for the second shipment, they

    threatened us that they would withdraw stock, unless we withdrew our Trade Mark.

    Our buyer told us that that would happen.

    They destroyed our business by withdrawing stock.

    After a few years, they stealthily got their biscuits into small Indian stores in Australia

    and contravened our Trade Mark.

    Then they put up a case against us with IP Australia. We could not afford legal backing.

    They used expensive legal firms.

    We fought the case and lost.

    Today they are now claiming $2795 from us !

    These Companies make you do work for them for free and use you and once you get their

    products in, they intimidate you so they can supply directly to the large Companies.

    They are ruthless !

    DO NOT do any work for this Company. They will burn you and the sting will be worse than

    the bite.

    Their packaging is bad.

    We found insects in one of their biscuit packets. They ignored us when we asked for a lab

    report on that contaminated packet.

    We helped them to improve their packaging for sales to Coles. We helped them arrange bar

    codes, food authority permission, labels, food ingredient displays etc.

    We went shop to shop to sell their products and market them to small Companies. We made a

    loss in the end.

    What did they do for us ?

    They destroyed us.

  1. 1. A PROJECT REPORT ON ABOUT PARLE Parle-G or Parle Glucose biscuits are one of the most popular confectionary bisc uits in India. Parle-G is one of the oldest brand names in India and is the larg est selling brand of biscuits in India. For decades, the product was instantly r ecognized by its iconic white and yellow wax paper wrapper with the depiction of a young girl, Sonam (calgary) covering the front. The company's slogan is popular among the Indian consumer population, reading G means Genius. The name, "Parle-G", is derived from the name of the Indian rail s tation, Vile Parle, where the Parle production factory is based. "Parle-G" boasts of being the largest selling biscuit in the world.
