Zhytomyr confectionary factory used to make products under order of Konti
The Zhytomyr confectionary factory, which is under control of CJSC Zhytomyrski Lasoschi, is used to make products for Konti industrial group that belongs to ex-member of the Party of Regions Borys Kolesnikov, Zhytomyr.info publication has reported.
The evidence of this is the information bulletin for boxes with products that are sent to Konti: "produced under order of Konti industrial group. The address of the production facilities: CJSC Zhytomyrski Lasoschi, 67, Schorsa Street, Zhytomyr."
The products (Saliut and Artek waffles) are fake Artek waffles of the Doma trademark that belongs to doubled liability company ZhL.
ZhL, which lost control over the facilities of the factory on November 27, 2015, told Interfax-Ukraine that this is an attempt of CJSC Zhytomyrski Lasoschi to illegally sell products made in the period when the facilities were managed by ZhL that was stored at warehouses before the illegal seizure of the factory.
The company said that the products made by the firm with the nonexistent form of ownership in Ukraine do not have the required certificates and permits, which doubts the quality of confectionary products made by the CJSC.
After the illegal seizure of the factory, the laboratory was completely destroyed, which makes impossible to inspect raw materials and finished products.
"CJSC Zhytomyrski Lasoschi in the person of pseudo-director A.Rohal and his partners in crime are only piggy-backing on the production facilities belonged to ZhL: they are trying to produce products under the unknown trademarks with names similar to the names of the products that were earlier made by ZhL at the lines of the factory using raw materials left on the territory of the factory after the illegal seizure," ZhL told Interfax-Ukraine.
ZhL said that this is not the first case of replacing the names of products made by ZhL by similar names (waffles Artem instead of Artek, Sakura cookies instead of Sahara).
ZhL warned Konti that cooperation with CJSC Zhytomyrski Lasoschi that illegally received access to production facilities and raw materials and the purchase of the uncertified products have signs of counterfeit operations and involve penalty.
