Unichel appealed to the Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Russian Federation with a request to clear the market of counterfeit goods

Unichel, a Russian footwear manufacturer, appealed to Viktor Yevtukhov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, to clear counterfeit goods on the Russian footwear market.

In an official letter from the company from 5 on May 2017, signed by the Director General of Unichel Shoe Company Vladimir Denisenko, the facts of the presence in the shopping centers of different cities of shoes under the well-known shoe brands Adidas, Reebok, Nike, which is sold at low prices, are given. According to the management of the Unichel company, this indicates that such products are imported into Russia illegally and creates unfair competition to domestic manufacturers. “Such economically unequal conditions undermine our production activities.

The company gave a list of stores and asked them to check the legality of the activities of entrepreneurs engaged in retail trade in this retail, to check the supply chain of shoes, to exclude the possibility of selling unhealthy and illegal goods.

And the tax burden of the manufacturer’s company, where the share of payroll taxes is very high, such as that of Unichel, reaches 25% of turnover! ”
