The economical globalization has increased the offshoring, that is to say, the relocation by a company of a business process from one country to another with lower salaries to reduce costs. This situation creates confussion between the consumers regarding the origin of the products, and even they may feel deceived when they realize that the acquired product comes from a country that is not the one they thought.
