A Greek man has taken umbrage over the use of his face on Swedish containers of Turkish yoghurt. The offended party is not interested in reconciliation, either: he has sued Lindahls, the dairy company that puts out the item, for almost $7 million.
The man only found out his moustachioed face featured on the containers of Turkisk Yoghurt made by Lindahls when a friend living in Stockholm told him.
Athanasios Varzanakos told Swedish Radio his friend “was annoyed and asked how it was possible” when informed.
Lindahls claims to have bought the image legitimately from a photo agency. Hopefully, this won’t have too much impact on the ongoing rapprochement between Greek and Turkish Cyprus.
