On January 14, 2010 the German Federal Cartel Office carried out surprise inspections at the premises of 15 companies on suspicion of coordinated retail price-fixing for confectionery, coffee and pet food. The companies raided include the following: chocolate manufacturer Mars; German retail giant Metro, which runs appliance stores, department stores, supermarkets, and cash-and-carry outlets; and confectionery manufacturer Haribo. Fellow retailers Edeka, Rewe, Shwarz Group’s Lidl, and Kaufland, drugstore Rossmann, and pet food maker Fressnapf have also confirmed that they were visited.
