CCA investigates possible unfair trading practices in grain business

Within the ongoing proceeding under the Act on the prohibition of unfair trading practices in the business-to-business food supply chain (UTPs Act) it will be necessary to prove whether the buyer of grains – FERMOPROMET – has imposed unfair trading practices on grain suppliers.

All the elements of the business relations between the parties concerned will be assessed by the CCA including the nature of the contracts and their implementation.

The CCA notes here that the mere opening of an infringement proceeding does not mean that the practices described in the initiative necessarily constitute unfair trading practices. The CCA decides on the merit on a case-by-case basis according to the established facts of any particular case.

In line with its confidentiality obligation, the CCA cannot give comments or release details about an ongoing case. Its final decision will be published in its entirety on this website.
