Date Set For McCambridge Brennans Packaging Dispute
Published on Jan 28 2014 9:57 AM in Retail
A hearing date of the 29 April has been set to decide how much money must be paid by one of Ireland's leading bread companies to its rival, over the use of similar packaging.
McCambridge are reportedly claiming that Brennans made profits of more than €600,000 from sales of their wholewheat brown bread product, which is wrapped in the disputed packaging.
Yesterday, the Irish Independent reported that both companies involved in the dispute informed Mr Justice Peter Kelly that they have prepared legal questions addressing the quantification of the extent of Brennans' liability.
Last month, Brennans confirmed that their brown bread product was actually manufactured and packaged another company, Doyle's Quality Products Ltd. Brennans also said that they would account to McCambridge's for any profit earned by Doyle's on the product.
McCambridge emerged triumphant in the case initiated three years ago, when a majority Supreme Court decision dismissed an appeal by Joseph Brennan bakeries against a High Court decision that Brennans had passed off its wholewheat bread as being the product of McCambridge.
