How Do You Define a Foreign Product?
« on: October 23, 2012, 06:52:00 pm »
Just wondering...

Supposing the product is officially on sale in the UK, even if made abroad - does it count as 'foreign'?  And how does one define 'officially'?

Or, must this be limited to items purchased abroad that are NOT on sale here?

 ???

I would say that if the product originated in the UK and is still made in the UK, then it is not a foreign product.  If the product originated abroad, but is made in the UK, then it is a foreign product. For example, Cadbury is no longer a UK product, although the company originated here, although, say, Montezuma's, which is UK owned and sold, is a UK brand.

I thought most stuff was made abroad anyway these days? The UK used to be one of the shining lights of the chocolate industry, but not now.

Hope that helps...

I've always thought if it was not officially available in the UK (e.g. Tiffin) it's a foreign product, even if the company behind it is officially British.
Who needs karma when you know you're great already?
