Kobalia set to patent all Georgian products

2011-01-06 19:07

12089.jpegGeorgian minister of economy and sustainable development stated that in 2011 the country authorities plan to patent all Georgian products.


As News Georgia reports, Kobalia's initiative is caused by appearance of Georgian products in French stores with Armenia indicated as the country-of-manufacture.

"Such things happen in other countries too. It is particularly hard for us given our small exports with other states. So we must solve the problem promptly and efficiently. After we register Georgian brands we will be able to deal with the companies producing falsified goods and legally claim that these products be withdrawn from sale", - Kobalia stated.

She assures that Abkhaz products too will be subject to patenting in order to avoid falsification by other manufacturers.

It will be remembered that earlier Georgian media reported on "copyright" violation for foodstuffs sold in French shops.

Georgian products like churchkhela, bread and khachapuri were offered for sale in many points of sale and retail chain stores of France as national food from Armenia.

It is remarked that such "imitations" were found in stores of Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Strasbourg and other big cities of France.

Besides, similar facts occur in various supermarkets in the USA where Georgia's famous mineral water Borjomi is presented as an Armenian product.
