Mainland frauds damage island garlic brandThe sale of garlic falsely marked as Ly Son garlic has damaged the brand name of the major crop of the Ly Son Island in recent years. Meanwhile, Ly Son brand garlic was sold at VND100,000 ($4.4) in mainland supermarkets” said vice chairwoman of the island district’s people’s committee, Pham Thi Huong. Huong slammed the fake garlic products from Khanh Hoa and Ninh Thuan, which were shipped from mainland to the island, resulting in lower prices. “We have conducted constant inspections, but some traders intentionally mixed different garlic products in packages without any label or certificates of origin. “Fraudsters could earn triple when they disguised fake garlic as Ly Son garlic.
