Health supplement firm fined for mislabelling products

23 June 2020

Invercargill firm Gateway Solutions Ltd (formerly trading as Silberhorn Ltd) has been fined $194,400 in the Dunedin District Court for misrepresentations it made about its deer velvet health supplements.

The Commerce Commission says the company and its director and majority shareholder, Ian Carline, were also found guilty of failing to supply information to the Commission during its investigation.

Silberhorn produced and sold health and dietary supplements, including a range of health supplements made from deer velvet. The deer velvet supplements were marketed as effective to support strength, activity and joint mobility.
