Cargill Foods India Gears up to Battle Counterfeiting

17.02.2017
Cargill Foods India is geared up to fight against counterfeit. In consensus with their ideology of providing wholesome nourishment, the company announced their new initiatives at an event held today.
 
Business Wire India
Cargill Foods India, a leading FMCG company has decided to fight against one of the major scenarios in India – Counterfeit Products. Addressing the impact of counterfeiting in India, Cargill Foods India announced initiatives to combat it at an event held today in Delhi.
In the commodity business, where brands play a vital role of defining the product differentiation, a counterfeit tarnishes the faith of a customer. According to a study by KPMG-FICCI, about 80 per cent of the consumers are victims of deceptive counterfeiting, i.e. they buy fake goods in the belief of buying genuine ones. While consumers end up paying excessively for low quality products that could possibly have health and safety risks, producers risk damage to brand image.
Cargill Foods India believes in nourishing the world in a safe, responsible and sustainable way and follows global standards around food safety. Cargill Foods India strongly condemns counterfeiting and is making all possible efforts to eradicate the problem from its roots. Hence, it has introduced new-age anti-counterfeiting technology in its products. One of its popular regional brand – Gemini Cooking Oil is a market leader with 27% share in Maharashtra. To begin with, the initiative against counterfeiting has been launched on this brand.
This anti-counterfeiting technology has a unique feature with a two-way process to check the authenticity of the Tin SKU. This process includes a 3D Hologram of Cargill Foods India which signifies the authenticity of the product. On looking at this hologram using the phone’s torch light, one can see ‘1865’ written – the year of foundation of Cargill Foods India’s operations. Besides, the customer can download an app called ‘Mojo Tags’ to scan batch code of the product and receive the reassurance of the genuineness of the product. This is the first time an edible oil brand in the country is making use of technology to fight the problem of counterfeiting.
Speaking on the occasion, Neelima Burra, Chief Marketing Officer, Cargill Foods India said “Counterfeiting in India is rising at an alarming rate, especially in the FMCG sector. A report by FICCI-KPMG suggests that out of the total counterfeit market, 65% is from this sector. Edible oil industry is one of the most unorganized sector in terms of distribution in India, hence, it holds a larger risk of duplicity. Therefore, ensuring that the right product reaches the consumer becomes utmost important. Purchasing a fake product brings loss to the business as well as may be a potential health hazard for the consumer. Counterfeiting is something Cargill Foods India takes very seriously as a fake product implies losing consumers’ trust. Educating the consumers and our wholesalers is a must to beat this menace. With Gemini Cooking Oil, we start our first step towards addressing this major issue of counterfeit goods.”
In the coming months, Cargill Foods India will educate the consumers with its various programmes on counterfeiting. Further, the company also plans to take necessary legal action against counterfeiting and getting the cases registered.

  • So, what is in that Vegetable Oil?

    Are they really getting oil from carrots and celery? The next time you’re in the supermarket, spend a little more time than usual in the oil section and take a look at what plants they come from. The vast majority are pretty obvious: coconut oil comes from coconuts, peanut oil from peanuts, etc. Only two are likely to be a little confusing: canola oil and vegetable oil. Canola oil actually comes from the rapeseed plant (“canola” stands for “Canadian oil, low acid”), but what ...

    At some point, you’ve probably heard about the oil-cleansing method, i.e., using an oil to remove dirt and, well, oil from your face. You’ve also probably been a little nervous about the idea, given that “oil” and “skin” seem like a bad combination. But cleansing oils are growing in popularity and regularly appear on drugstore shelves, even though they seem like a counterintuitive way to wash your face.   Solange Knowles’s stylist Shiona Turini gets the apprehension. In a new ...
