Report fakes, so action can be taken

Nairobi - Big firms have come underfire from the Anti Counterfeit Agency (ACA) for not being proactive, leading to a rise in counterfeit goods in supermarket shelves.
In a statement to Capital News, ACA Chief Executive Officer Stephen Mallowah said that companies do not report counterfeits infringing on their brands, causing increase in fake goods in the Kenyan market.
Mallowah added that until brand owners formally complain, there is nothing the agency can do, as many fear the bad press their brands will get and opt to remain silent.
