The OFT has ended its cartel investigation into the supply of products used in the agricultural sector. It has decided that there is insufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against any individual.  

The investigation had followed the OFT’s execution of a search warrant at a business in the West Midlands in April 2010 as part of an inquiry into criminal cartel conduct (under the Enterprise Act 2002, which makes it a criminal offence for individuals dishonestly to engage in cartel conduct).
