Mecca prevails against Hourglass in exclusivity battle

Mecca prevails against Hourglass in exclusivity battle

THE WHAT? Australia’s Supreme Court has found in favor of Mecca in a case it bought against Hourglass Cosmetics over a breached exclusivity agreement, according to a report published by News.com.

THE DETAILS Hourglass began to sell its products to Australian and Kiwi consumers directly via its website during the pandemic, in breach of its exclusivity agreement with Mecca, the judge found. Hourglass has been ordered to pay costs and the pair will determine damages via mediation.

THE WHY? Mecca is seeking compensation for the ‘loss and damage’ it suffered as a result of the breach. A spokesperson for Mecca told News.com, “Mecca will continue to stock Hourglass products both online and in-store on an exclusive basis.

“Over the past decade, we’ve worked closely with Hourglass to help build it into one of the most-loved beauty brands in Australia and New Zealand, and we’re looking forward to continuing this partnership.”
