Administrative Court in Split dismisses the untimely claim of AGRO GOLD

The Croatian Competition Agency fined AGRO GOLD d.o.o. from Opuzen HRK 75,000 for a serious infringement of the Croatian Act on the prohibition of unfair trading practices in the business-to-business food supply chain.

In line with the Act on the prohibition of unfair trading practices in the business-to-business food supply chain on 29 July 2021 the Croatian Competition Agency (CCA) took an infringement decision against the buyer of watermelons – AGRO GOLD d.o.o. regarding the use of its strong bargaining power in the sense of imposition of unfair trading practices in the purchase of watermelons and sanctioned the undertaking concerned HRK 75,000.

 The Administrative Court in Split decided to dismiss the claim of AGRO GOLD due to the fact that the claim was filed outside the prescribed deadline of 30 days after the receipt of the CCA decision.
