Food brands 'cheat' eastern European shoppers with inferior products

European commissioner says firms ‘misled’ consumers by wrapping worse versions of well-known goods in same packaging• Are brands in the east lower quality than in the west?Multinational food and drink companies have “cheated and misled” shoppers in eastern Europe for years by selling them inferior versions of well-known brands, according to the European commission’s most senior official responsible for justice and consumers.In an outspoken attack on the corporate giants she claims have been flagrantly breaking the law, the Czech commissioner, Věra Jourová, told the Guardian: “We say for the first time clearly: this is unfair commercial practice. In many cases, yes, I am convinced [the law has been broken] because there is manifest cheating.” Continue reading...

Europe's 'food apartheid': are brands in the east lower quality than in the west?

Many people in eastern Europe still regularly cross borders in search of better-quality food, drink or clothes – in what Bulgaria’s leader has called ‘the biggest scandal of the recent past’. But what’s really behind this food inequality row?When Boris Yeltsin visited the United States in 1989, he was said to have been amazed at the variety of food he saw in a Texan supermarket. The cornucopia of products, unheard of behind the iron curtain (or at best, poorly reproduced), was said to have shattered the future Russian president’s faith in the Soviet system.For most countries under that system, the iron curtain long ago gave way to membership of the EU and its single market. Yet consumers and politicians in the east remain convinced that goods sold in western Europe – even well-known brands made by multinationals – are of superior quality to those sold under the same branding in their countries.

Pictures reveal Carlos the Jackal's clandestine life in communist Prague

Covert images show how Czech security services kept close watch on international assassin and Munich terrorist Abu Daoud in 1970s and 80sOne summer day in August 1979, Carlos the Jackal, international terrorist and assassin, managed to lock himself out of his luxury hotel room in Prague, and got so angry that he started running along the corridors yelling and waving a large revolver.The Venezuelan, born Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez, is serving a life sentence in France. But in the 1970s and early 1980s, he lived freely – and sometimes outrageously – under the watchful eye of the communist Czechoslovakian regime, making Prague’s Intercontinental Hotel his second home.
