A recent report published by the World Customs Organization states that the value of alcoholic beverages seized due to IPR infringement has risen significantly from 2012 to 2013 (51.7%).(World Customs Organization, Illicit Trade Report 2013, from wcoomd.org, p. 64)
Counterfeit alcoholic beverages are therefore a growing problem for producers and consumers alike. In an effort to combat the rise of wine and liquor fraud, AlpVision offers the wine and spirits industry a patented security solution that requires no visible markings, no additional consumables, no special reading devices, and no changes to the production process.
