A Word of Warning
As always the case, unfortunately, Illegal counterfeiters are deceiving consumers by copying our products and trade mark. There are countless of counterfeiters out there trying to copy the design of the fufu boxes. Although, the boxes may appear the same, the product always tastes different from the original Tropical Foods Fufu. More severe, counterfeiting is prohibited by criminal and civil law. The punishments vary from country to country. Usually, Brand owners can sue counterfeiters in civil court for damages and injunctions. Also, the government can sue, as well, in criminal court. Here the punishments include fines and incarceration. These crimes originated from developing countries with strong but low-cost manufacturing capabilities, including Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America. The internet is the key to selling counterfeit products. To deceive the consumer, the counterfeiter displays an advertisement of the fake product using the photo of the real product.
Remember, a counterfeiter is like a magician who has discovered some unique ways and means to create an illusion and deception to pocket your hard earned money. Always look for our trademark TROPIWAY® because we make the best quality products at an affordable price.
