NESTLE has filed a lawsuit against Russian distributor Elitvoda Ru, claiming it has been importing Perrier water without authorisation, Russia-ic.com reported. Elitvoda Ru had been selling in Russia Perrier, Vittel, Pellegrino and Panna mineral water under contract with the Swiss company until 2009. After Nestlé raised the price of these products, Elitvoda Ru refused to co-operate and started to import the products itself from countries in Europe. The Swiss company believes that Elitvoda Ru has violated the trademark rights.
