We represented Kaupo Kutsar in a dispute with Toiduliit (Estonian Food Industry Association)

Kaupo Kutsar is a professional farmer and politician who raised questions about whether it is correct to use the tricolour flag logo (blue-black-white) on products whose main ingredient has no ties to Estonia and whether the statements that the manager of Toiduliit made about the logo are transparent and truthful.

Regarding the claim filed by Toiduliit’s manager, the Valga District Court found that a retraction is not necessary but non-material damage has been caused with the use of inappropriate language. The dispute continues in Tartu Circuit Court of Appeal.
