NBC to contest case against Rite Foods - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) Limited, has declared it would vigorously contest the case against Rite Foods, reports ITREALMS.
A press statement from NBC, a member of Coca-Cola Hellenic Group made available to
ITREALMS, the company said it would contest legally, the controversy over the copyright issue on Predator Energy drink.


“We note recent media coverage relating to the legal case between Rite Foods Limited and Nigerian Bottling Company Limited “NBC,” regarding the Predator Energy drink.

“Given that the case is now going through the due legal process, we are limited in what we can say publicly.

“However, in the interest of clarity and accuracy, both NBC and Predator Energy would like to make two things 100 per cent clear: firstly, we are well within our rights to continue to sell the Predator products and secondly, neither NBC nor its Managing Director, is in breach of any court order.

NBC also said that naturally, “we will contest the case vigorously and after due consideration of the merits of the case we are confident that the court will confirm our rights based mainly on the facts that the bottles and logos are not confusingly similar and Predator Energy’s established use of the Predator brand and logo in many other markets around the world.”
