Summary

The registered proprietor showed use of the mark in respect of vitamin preparations and zinc preparations, "but only in liquid form". The Hearing Officer considered that cutting the specification to liquid goods, however, would not reflect the "commercial reality of the trade". The registration was therefore reduced to "vitamin and mineral preparations".
