A post on food and competition law dedicated to our friend Alfonso, who is busy prepping for the big hearing in Cisco v. the two best antitrust friends Commission+Microsoft.  

One of our readers has informed us that the Bundeskartellamt has conducted dawn raids at firms active in the potato sector (growing and distribution). Although lengthy, the press release does not say much of the substance of the case. Apparently, the BKartA suspects price fixing.

Neither does it mention whether there was a leniency application. Yet, we are told that the BKartA never gives such info at this stage of a case.

Thanks to Andrea for the pointer.
