Exposure of Imitation foreign brands scandals

"山寨Shanzhai’ (knockoff) was once a buzz word referring to imitation and pirated brands and goods in China. Shanzhai products always have the obvious "signature": its crappy-looking appearance and dirt-cheap price. Thus a consumer buys the knockoff products and is prepared for its bad quality. For that reason, one doesn’t feel much cheated after buying the Shanzhai products. Now there’s another kind of Shanzhai– imitation foreign brands products. This time, the "signature’ is gone, for those imitation foreign brands products are well packaged, sold at a far more higher price, and with a fake "foreign-made" label.

DaVinci brand furniture is a well-known luxury brand in China. The price of a DaVinci single bed can be more than 100,000 yuan. The reason for its high price, as the company claimed, is because "DaVinci is an Italian international super brand and its furniture is produced in Italy. In addition, its raw materials are high-quality natural materials without pollution".

However, news investigation program "Focus" produced by the national television CCTV reveals that the claimed Italy-made DaVinci products are actually made in China. According to the survey, a large amount of the DaVinci furniture are made in Dongguan City of south China and then directly shipped to Italy from the Shenzhen port, and then back to Shanghai. As a result, that furniture will have complete import formalities. Some DaVinci furniture in Shanghai even did not leave China but only stayed at the bonded warehouse in Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone near Shanghai for 24 hours and returned the market as foreign-made products. As to the "high-quality natural raw material" they declared, most of them are actually polymer resinous materials. Worse still, as exposed, some of the DaVinci products are even unqualified products.

In the press conference after the exposure, the general manager Pan Zhuang Xiuhua first denied the accusation and insisted the DaVinci furniture were all made in Italy and she got so emotional that she shed tears. However with more and more evidence appearing, DaVinci furniture company finally admitted that they lied.

But DaVinci is only one of many "imitation foreign brands" that has been exposed and there are far more unexposed companies:

The Scient formula milk powder was once a well-known "foreign brand" trusted by many Chinese parents. They claimed the source of the milk was 100% from America while in fact, it’s a shell company in America and the formula milk powder is produced in Shanxi and Hei Longjiang, some northern cities.

Order floorboard claimed to be a 100-year old German brand. In 2004 they even launched a luxury floorboard that cost 2008 yuan per m². After the investigation by the CCTV, there is no floorboard company named Order in Germany and the trademark Order is actually registered in 2000 by a Beijing company.

    Chinese people can never be as smart and innovative as Whites. It’s simple biology that those yellow Apes don’t have the capacity to be creative. All they do is steal from the West (badly).

    We should have bombed China along with Japan and taken over their land. It’s such a waste that Chinese own so much land and have so much power in China. Subhumans without souls should not be allowed to thrive.

    The world was at its peak during the British/American/Western empire.

      So how does your mum’s cunt taste?

      What about your dad’s cock? Which one tastes better in your opinion?

    • handburglar says:

      Racist much? I agree their quality is (mostly) shit, but it has nothing to do with race.

      • expatrick says:

        Fuck you! How much do you get paid by the CCP? You must be another 50 center spreading your commie propaganda.

        • handburglar says:

          lol, that’s the first time I’ve been accused of being a 50 center. Would a 50 center say that almost everything China makes is of subpar quality? I doubt it.

    The Mainland Chinese are shameless scumbags. I’ve never seen such a graceless bunch of scum.

    I’m Canadian born on going to Mainland China is like having a heart attack once you discover the absurd amounts of vanity in the way the act and the amounts of corruptions in the city. And believe me a tiny city in China was huge as fuck to me.

    • xl says:

      Er, you do know Da Vinci is a company founded by a Singaporean right?

      Ya fucking retard

      • Chighknee Syrap says:

        LOL you stupid fuck. What does where it was founded have to do with this massive Chinese based, Cinese manufactured scandal? Dumbfuck.

        I could’ve registered Company Buttfuck-ABC in Puerto Rico but operated out of Vietnam if I wanted to. Fuck you.

      • vic2u says:

        @xl

        Don’t let CS get to you, these kinds of whiteys or expats are Chinese haters for life.

        They would rather eat curry and all their food with their hands than to eat with chopstix.

  3. Meth says:

    This is too common to be called “new(s)”, that’s why the train crash is a result of poor imitation, copying another’s assignment without actually reading it. China needs to man up, grow some balls and do something honorable, stealing brand names and scamming people should be stopped.

  4. xino says:

    i don’t know why China can never come up with their own original content. If someone can replicate any given product, wouldn’t you call them a genius? but if that person who is so good at replicating a button but cannot create his/her own original content then you can remove the genius rank from that person.

    any knock off made always come from China.

    If these people who make the knock off created their own products, they would be rich. And companies would not be suing them or forcing them to close down productions.

    “Chinese government’s new name is now called Devils of China.
    made by me.. make sure you spread it!

    let them know who the real devil is.”

    • expatrick says:

      It is because Chinese people are inherently inferior to Whites. They do not have the mental capability of creativity or innovation – all they can do is repitious tasks and manual labor.

      They are almost as bad as those Black Apes, but at least they don’t have as much AIDS. I hope someday we bomb the shit out of them and make them pay for taking up space in the world.

      Chinese people are subhuman, savage scum that deserve to either die or become slaves.

      • vic2u says:

        That’s right, I know what you are talking about.

        That is I have lived in the whitey’s shit world to know what whiteys say about Chinese people.

        Nothing new, the Chinese hear your kind all their lives in the whitey’s shit world, they don’t mind it’s the price they pay to live like a westerner.

    • vic2u says:

      Don’t worry your little ass about what China can or can’t do or make.

      Her time will come and you will be working in the shit hole with the rest of the slaves.

      There is only one original car, flat screen TV, cellphone, computer and one original rocket.

      So why are there so many companies in as many nations making them?

      Why you pick on China only shithead?

    Pan zhuang xiughua(davinci) was only putting on a show with those alligator tears, had someone mentioned “reimbursements to customer’s…?” She would have stopped crying immediatlely! Send her to prison, take all her money.

  6. juniorboydoe says:

    Expatrick “Chinese people can never be as smart and innovative as whites” Where the hell were you educated? I may not be entirely pro-chinese but whites are far worst then chinese at hypocracy,robbing other cultures,agree-with-me-or die mentality. China,Egypt(Africa),Greece were civilized when whites still lived in caves!
