P T Krishnan, the Vice President- Branded Tea Division of Goodricke Group Limited said “Goodricke Group invests heavily on the quality of its products and is strictly monitoring counterfeiting activities to reduce the risk of honest customers unintentionally purchasing counterfeit products.  This is a serious offense,” he said.

Over the years, Goodricke has built tremendous goodwill in the minds of tea lovers due to the superior quality of the tea offered by the Company.  The fake counterfeit tea does not meet the quality standards offered by Goodricke, and its consumption can also be dangerous since it is an ingestible product.  (KNT)
