Officers from Border Force, Folkestone were joined by global brands yesterday at a training day organised by the Anti-Counterfeiting Group.
A number of brands including Superdry, The Premier League, New Era Caps, and Jaguar Land Rover encouraged enforcement officers to handle genuine and counterfeit products and chat about ways to identify the ‘fake’.
“We are happy to support Border Force in their work, identifying and seizing counterfeit goods. Counterfeiting costs the UK economy £30 Billion a year and has a clear link to drug trafficking, money laundering, firearms and corruption” commented Alison Statham, ACG Director General.
