Vietnam's largest fake fish sauce case discovered

QUANG BINH - The Quang Binh People's Procuracy has initiated legal proceedings against a man for manufacturing a large amount of fake goods.

It was the largest case of fake fish sauce processing discovered in the province so far, according to the people's procuracy.

The provincial authorities added that in January this year, the accused Ngo Thanh Tam, who lives in Ba Don Town's Quang Long Ward, bought materials of unidentified origin to produce more than 1,800 bottles of fish sauce with fake trademarks of Nam Ngu and Second-class Nam Ngu.

Tam's fake fish sauce was made from low-quality fish sauce mixed with salt, mineral water and added sugar.

His scam was discovered when Tam was transporting the fish sauce to the market for sale.
