China Watch Blog has learnt that Shanghai customs seized more than 55 tons of fake Jamila-brand seasonings on route to Africa at the city’s Yangshan Port.
The compound condiments, worth US$102,000, had shabby packaging and claimed to be products from Anhui Qiangwang Flavoring Food Co Ltd, which owns the Jamila brand.
Customs officials suspected the goods were counterfeits after discovering impurities in them on March 21. They contacted the brand owner and confirmed these were fakes.
Jamila has enjoyed a good reputation in African and Southeast Asian markets for nine years with its popular chicken and shrimp bouillon cubes, condiments, and chicken powder.If you think China Watch Blog's information is useful, click on cup of coffee on left hand side and make a small contribution via PayPal
