The OFT has issued a Supplementary Statement of Objections (SSO) arising from its long-running investigation into the alleged fixing of prices for dairy products between 2002 and 2003. The OFT investigation looked into the conduct of a number of large supermarkets and dairy processors and an initial Statement of Objections was issued in 2007. The majority of the parties, including Asda and Sainsbury’s, admitted price-fixing and agreed to pay fines or applied for leniency. However, Morrisons and Tesco have continued to deny participating in the cartel and the SSO sets out additional evidence to support the OFT’s 2007 investigative findings. Morrisons and Tesco will now have the opportunity to make written and oral representations to the OFT before a final decision is reached.
