Counterfeiting is a global challenge and not just limited to medicines and luxury products - in fact, in fact every product is counterfeited. In 2021, German customs authorities seized counterfeit products worth more than 315 million euros (source: German Federal Ministry of Finance, Der Zoll - Daten und Fakten im Überblick Link).
A joint brand protection study by Karg und Petersen and Arvato Systems, in which more than 200 companies from a wide range of industries and 15 European countries participated, shows how European companies are effectively combating counterfeiting and plagiarism. The results are now available online.
