´süt´ has stirred up Austria


"Süt" labels on some of the products of an Austrian company has caused protests.




´Türkçe süt´ Avusturya´yı karıştırdı






Milk (süt in Turkish) has caused some controversy in Asutria. A company has begun to use Turkish word "süt" on some of their products sold through Turkish Markets in Austria, which has caused some protests.
According to an Austrian mewspaper (Kurier) the call center of the company is receiving hundreds of calls and e-mails protesting it. Also some forums are calling to boycott all the products of the company.

So the name was English first, and then they changed it to Turkish?

I think they  called it "milch" in Austria. Take a look at the picture in first post.

So the title is "milch" or "süt".

you said ´So the name was English first, and then they changed it to Turkish?´ - i was just pointing out that ´milch´ written on the cartons is not english and i wondered why you didn´t say german not english. so no need for the sarcastic comment thank you.

Okay, this is what happened...as you sometimes see from my typo´s and idiotic mistakes, I have a bit of dyslectia. Not that bad most of the time, but sometimes I read words that aren´t there. So, I actually thought it said Australia. I read the peace three times now, then google Kaurier, and THEN I finnaly understood it said Austria I really didn´t get why they would say Milch on a Australian milk packages... Seem they don´t do that at all {#emotions_dlg.suspicious}

Come on guys.

 

I wasn´t expecting this kind of comments.

 

The company is right in their decision as they are targeting Turkish consumers. The problem is why are Austrians so oversensitive here?
