Fake goods can pose a risk to health, and costs businesses in loss of revenue and reputation.

Whether it is wanting to make sure your hard earned cash is spent on a genuine Cartier watch (other watch brands are available) or be certain that your beef burger did originate from a cow, provenance, product assurance and anti-counterfeiting affect all of us. Fake goods can pose a risk to health, and costs businesses in loss of revenue and reputation.


Over the next 12 months KTN will be running a series of workshops and other activities to explore further the current challenges and future solutions to this problem which affects all industries.
