Last year, I review Candy called Himalaya Salt Sports Candy. Check out my review HERE. It became not only my favourite but most of the people whom I shared this love it too. They even find and purchase it themselves. One of my friends got very excited when she found this at Guardian. As usual when the thing is hot selling many others trying their best to turn this into a cash cow by producing the counterfeit which ingredients doesn't serve the whole health benefit purpose.
Nicko Jeep Manufacture Sdn Bhd (Nicko Jeep) has recently been notified on counterfeit Himalaya Salt Sports Candy (Himalaya Salt Extra Cool Mint Candy - Lemon Flavour) products being sold at unauthorised sales channels. We take this issue very seriously as counterfeiting products are not only illegal but may pose health risks to consumers due to dubious ingredients used in manufacturing the candies.
Nicko Jeep’s manufacturing facility that manufactures the Himalaya Salt Sports Candy is also certified by HACCP, GMP and MESTI while the products are HALAL certified by JAKIM. However, these counterfeit candies are not certified and are therefore not safe for consumption.
We’ve reported this to the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism and we hope stern action will be taken against these perpetrators. In the meantime, we strongly suggest that customers only purchase our Himalaya Salt Sports Candy from reputable retailers and if in doubt, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or https://www.facebook.com/bigfoot.my/
We are also taking necessary steps to educate consumers in identifying genuine products from counterfeit through our facebook page and our official website www.himalayacandy.com From among them are:
Another glaring difference between the genuine pack and counterfeit is the spacing between Delfi Marketing Sdn. Bhd. and the mailing address.
Counterfeit packaging uses a slightly different font at the bottom in describing the functions of the candy i.e ‘Increase Hydration, Throat Soothing, Fresh Breath’ and the words ‘Sports Candy’ is slightly faded.
While on the back of the pack, the word ‘Manufacturer In Malaysia By’ is used instead of ‘Manufacture In Malaysia By’.
Please be rest assure that Himalaya Salt Sports Candy original Manufacturer is taking measures to eradicate counterfeit Himalaya Salt Sports Candy by working with retailers and relevant authorities.
