The Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) has imposed a fine of HUF 100 million on The Hut.com Limited, a company registered in the United Kingdom that sells MyProtein-branded food supplements and clothing products, the office said on its website on Thursday.
According to the information, the GVH’s investigation found that The Hut.com Limited, registered in the United Kingdom, unfairly, misleading consumers, marketed MyProtein-branded food supplements and clothing products.
During the procedure, the company could not prove that it had previously used the original, ie higher, prices of the products listed in the e-DM letters and on its Hungarian website as special offers. In addition, messages urging consumers to buy, which gave consumers the impression that the so-called discounted prices are only valid for a limited period of time, proved to be infringing, the communication said.
The competition authority imposed a fine of HUF 100 million on the company, banned it from continuing the infringing behavior, and obliged the company to prove compliance with the ban, the GVH said.
