Unilever sued over dishwasher tablets

Unilever is being taken to court by rival Reckitt Benckiser for making misleading claims about its Sun dishwasher tablets, the Telegraaf reports on Wednesday.

Last year, Reckitt added 50% more tablets to its standard Calgonit package and left the price unchanged.
The company claims Unilever then reduced the number of tablets in its Sun packaging but cut the price by one-third so that it too could advertise that it was offering ‘50% free’.
Lawyer Adonna Alkema says the consequences were ‘disastrous’ for Reckitt, reports the Telegraaf.
