The sad truth is that counterfeit is defeating all available technologies. Many millions are spend to fight back. Rfid, holograms, microdots and many other authentication features. Experts see two main flaws: it is impossible to educate all consumers to recognize real from fake authentication features. Second, some solutions are too technology dependent and expensive.

About us?

Imágen que ilustra la seriedad y cercanía de nuestra empresa

The MamaQ idea originated after the unnecessary death of a todler in 2006 due to fake antibioticss, followed by the fake baby milk disaster in China in 2008 that took the lives of several infants. This lead to the personal motivation to design a system to fight a multi billion piracy business. Starting with health, our service is designed to stop the sales of fraudulent medications and processed food. Depending on the country, fake medication varies between 3% and 50% of the total market with devastating concequences.

From that point, we decided to open our scope to other sectors where counterfeiting is affecting both the consumer and the producer. We now also target car parts, luxery goods, fashion and wine.

Headquarters was founded in Hong Kong in 2011. Opening management offices in the Netherlands and Spain in 2013 we have a deep understanding of asian markets. Global presence allows us to bring specialists to producers and product management teams targeting markets that are known for counterfeit and high margins.
