The message of TRUTH
Macedonian products are Greek products only when GREECE is referenced as the country of origin (MADE IN GREECE).
The term Macedonian designates origin from Macedonia, the region of Northern Greece, only when accompanied by the indication “made in Greece”. Otherwise products are derived from a third country – most probably FYROM – and are labelled incorrectly to falsely give the impression of Macedonian, ie Northern Greek, origin.
Legitimate Greek Macedonian products can be recognized by the following features:
-Country of origin should be labeled Made in Greece
-Use of the term Macedonian will always be in conjunction with “Made in Greece” and not made in Macedonia (there is no country Macedonia).
Businesses producing goods in FYROM intentionally create confusion about the origin of the products, in order to mislead the consumers world-wide. Products made in FYROM and labelled “made in Macedonia” deceive consumers and infringe on the rights of Greek companies.
So, for example, if you see a label stating “made in Macedonia” this is deceiving because there is no country Macedonia rather only the
region of Greece). Equally the same applies to a label such as “Macedonian product” that is made in Macedonia.
These products are NOT Greek. They bear the term Macedonia and its derivatives with an intention to mislead. Macedonia as a geographical term refers to the region of Northern Greece and using it in lieu of the country of origin is deceptive. Apart from being misleading, and creating the impression that the goods and services originated elsewhere, the use of the name, identity and properties of another person, country or region are ethically questionable. Think how you would feel if someone decided to appropriate elements of your identity, such as your name, your image, or your features in such a way that would lead to a great deal of confusion about who is who. Surely you have the safety of the legal recourse yet it is a particularly troublesome situation which creates a number of problems. That is why we are asking you to support all Macedonian products made in GREECE so that they can easily be distinguished from any products misusing the derivatives of the term “Macedonia” which do not come from Greece.
Your support will send a clear message all over the world in favor of Macedonian products made in Greece.
WE TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.
PRODUCTS MADE IN GREECE!
