A leading liquor company was looking to enter the Indian market. However, reports were received that their products were already widely available across India. The reported numbers exceeded their production capacity, so infringement activity was immediately suspected.
Our team launched investigations in the key locations of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad. Relationships were developed with key players as we managed to penetrate the supply chain at all levels and gather product samples for testing.
We discovered that our client’s product was being mixed with local liquor and widely distributed across India under our client’s brand. Our investigation resulted in a swift shutdown of these operations, protecting the client’s reputation and their consumers’ safety.
