A dispute over the Del Monte trademark has led to a complaint being filed in a US District Court in New York, which could see Del Monte Pacific, the Singapore-based group, face a US$100m lawsuit. The move was made by Fresh Del Monte Produce, the licensee of the Del Monte brand in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which claims that Del Monte Pacific has been selling products in its territories. Del Monte Pacific, which operates in China, India and the Philippines amongst other countries, has vowed to fight the claims, saying that the lawsuit was "without merit".
