The International Trade Team at Felixstowe Port was presented with an ACG Award for Excellence in Anti-Counterfeiting by The Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) on Wednesday.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) present these awards annually to recognise the excellent enforcement work that happens, often behind the scenes, in the fight against the trade in counterfeit goods.
Carol Levin, ACG explained “It was an honour to visit the port yesterday to present this ACG Award. Electrical chargers, batteries, household goods, toys, luxury goods, accessories and many other counterfeit products arrive at UK borders every year and it’s enforcement work, like that carried out by the International Trade Team here at Felixstowe, that helps tackle this evil crime. Congratulations to the team.“
Candidates for ACG Awards are nominated by their peers and an awards panel of ACG members determine the worthy winners.
