Business litigation involving well-known candy companies

California district attorneys recently won a significant case brought against a few well-known chocolate companies. Chocolate makers Russell Stover and Ghirardelli recently came under fire and faced business litigation due to certain packaging issues that led to consumers receiving much less product than they actually paid for. The two companies are facing fines that amount to $750,000, and they have to adjust some of their packaging techniques as well.  

The prosecution accused the two successful candy companies of knowingly and deliberately packing some of their products in a way that deceived consumers. One specific issue is the selling of containers that were essentially empty, containing much less chocolate than expected. Consumers who brought the complaint believe the company was intentionally trying to mislead them.

Adjusting to trends in ecommerce

One area that has seen a lot of growth in recent years is online retail. Estimates point to ecommerce having hit $2.8 trillion in global sales revenues in 2018. And continued growth is expected.

The opportunities ecommerce can provide may draw entrepreneurs here in California to consider starting an online retail business.
