Leading industry trade bodies the Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) and Scottish Grocers’ Federation (SGF) joined forces with the Scottish Anti-Illicit Trade Group (SAITG) to highlight the escalating economic and community costs of the illicit trade in counterfeit goods at a Parliamentary Reception on 15 January.
The Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) has announced the appointments of Julie Dunn, operations director of Dunns Food and Drinks, as vice-president and Chris Gallacher, retail development controller Scotland for Booker, as junior vice-president.
Tackling the estimated billions of pounds lost and personal safety dangers of illicit trade in counterfeit goods should be a New Year’s resolution for Scotland, according to leading industry trade bodies.
