PETALING JAYA: Nestlé Malaysia has urged consumers to only purchase Milo products from reputable and major retailers in the country following the seizure of fake Milo packets during a recent raid.
In an e-mail to The Star, Nestlé said it is mobilising its sales team to identify the counterfeit product and the company will continue to cooperate fully with the authorities and render assistance wherever possible.
“Nestlé takes this issue very seriously as counterfeiting of products is an illegal activity that deliberately misleads the public.
“Nestlé does not have information on how the counterfeit Milo was produced; therefore we are unable to comment on this.
“We understand that there is an official investigation underway and we trust the authorities will issue further information once this is complete,” said the statement on Tuesday.

KUALA LUMPUR: Milo Malaysia has uploaded an image to help its customers differentiate between the original and fake product.
The image uploaded on its official Facebook page was also shared on Nestle’s Facebook page. “The original Milo packaging is machine packed and cut. As such the edges on the top of the original pack will not have a perfect perforation,” it said.
Based on a report by Sinar Harian, Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry on Friday seized RM250,000 worth of fake Milo products at an elite residential area in Mantin, Negeri Sembilan. State chief enforcer Saifulbahri Abdul Kadir said this was done after receiving many complaints from members of the public.
