In October and November 2015, their sociological research has focused on how Czech consumers perceive the situation where a number of foreign manufacturers of food supplied products of different composition under the same name to different national markets, often on the grounds that in different countries, people have different tastes. Research has shown that it is not the case in the Czech Republic, and also that 88% of respondents are annoyed by this current practice. 36 percent of Czech consumers said that this was just a blatant manipulation.
