Measures against counterfeit products
Regarding trademark right infringement in which the Kikkoman brand is imitated, we are strengthening monitoring and countermeasures, and are aggressively continuing countermeasure activities especially focusing on Asian territories and Russia.
For example, we have asked related government agencies in China to expose counterfeit manufacturing factories and wholesalers, etc. and administrative exposure is being carried out. We will continue to deal with counterfeit products with a resolute attitude in the future.
