FAS claims Coffee House violates ad laws

Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service declared that Coffee House chain appears to violate the existing advertising legislation, RIA Novosti reports.

The coffee chain’s primary problem is that their outdoor advertising campaign, dubbed The Mojito Season; the thing is, the advertisements do not warn the potential consumers about the health hazards associated with excessive alcohol intake. This is why Coffee House will have to face an administrative lawsuit and might end up paying between 100,000 RUR and 500,000 RUR in fines.

OOO Coffee House & Cappuccino Bar representatives assure reporters the violation will be eliminated as soon as they receive the Federal Antimonopoly Service’s official notification.

The coffee chain runs over two hundred cafes, some of which are located in Yekaterinburg.
