Thank you Dinesh,for that lovely Introduction and Overview of L’OrealAnd now to discuss the topic in some detail………Product counterfeiting is,typically an organized group activity,Because… the manufacturing of goods takes manpower and time, and the goal is invariably profit. Many jurisdictions take the offence quite seriously, as a result…most product counterfeiting would be considered as organized crime under the Convention.……Products in high demand can be manufactured,based on the same or similar looking designs, often packaged and branded in ways ,to make them indistinguishable from the original.Counterfeiting accounts for between 5-7% of world trade….In India this accounts for almost 10% of our trade…..One can only imagine,the losses to the exchequer, and hence,the importance of what we are here today for…
To give you a brief overview of,the volume of seizures over the past 3 years,across the 2 main avenues i.e. Customs and Market Seizures.….While market seizures have dropped by 40% over the last 3 years,, Customs seizures have grown approximately 7 times.I think we should applaud your efforts in making this a reality
This shows a geographical representation of the,seizures in units that we have had over the past 3 years,….Notable among this is,the largest seizures have taken place at Ludhiana in 2011,and none at Mumbai, Kolkata and Kochi over the last 3 years.
Let’s take a quick look,at the most counterfeited,from our Garnier stable of products…Of a total of more than 1000 SKU’s,that we have across all brands at L'Oréal, these SKU’s are, the most prone due to their, high turnover and ad spends or what we call “Share Of Voice”As per our past experience in counterfeit seizures, these land in India mainly from China, where ….we believe ..they are manufactured as well.
The products that we have seen so far, have been products, that are found in our Indian Catalogue……The Products that we are now seeing, are non-catalogued products, or products which L'Oréal have never ever made Worldwide…In short, these are purely FAKE products, carrying the Garnier trademarks…
Few more…..We have kept some samples here ….. For your easy reference……
These are the same products, but carrying the L'Oréal Paris trademarks…They have been rather adventurous, in launches atrocious categories, that we would never have even thought of….
Let us now take a look at , the commonly found visible clues, that set, these counterfeit products, apart from the original ones………..These relevant products, have been kept on your respective tables,…As we go through the slides,you can check the same, with the products kept in front of you… ……..Imported Products CANNOT have a label of Indian Manufacturing Origin……The main orifice from where the product is dispensed is bigger than the original product……Counterfeit products, will be heavier than the original, since they fill the product to the brim …..i.e. full capacity of the containerThere is a distinct difference, in the inner fabrication markings on the cap.
These distinguishing marks are specific to Garnier Men Powerlight….
These distinguishing marks are specific to Garnier Light Fairness Face Wash with Lemon Essence….
These distinguishing marks are specific to Garnier Pure and Light Face Washes….
These distinguishing marks are specific to Garnier Fructis Style….
Now that we have seen, how to distinguish, these counterfeit products, lets take a look at the brands, which have been registered with Customs so far….…
To summarise,Weare the sole licensee for India, to import and market,the products owned by L’Oreal Group….…..We mainly import our products through ,Mumbai customs,NhavaSheva,Kandla…..When products are imported with pre-labeling,Of “Mfd.by” L’Oreal India….The products are definitely “not genuine “…..
I think that, this is just the beginning, and the achievements, that you have seen so far, is just, the tip of the iceberg, as far counterfeit seizures are concerned……..With a team like yours,we forecast, bad times ahead for counterfeiters…
Thank you Very much, for your kind attention.
