The European Commission has announced that on 10 July 2008 it conducted unannounced inspections (dawn raids) in two EU Member States. The inspections were carried out at the offices of traders and distributors of cereals and other agricultural products for human consumption and animal feed. No further information was provided by the Commission. It is, however, reported that, given the increasing prices for foodstuffs, the Commission will become increasingly keen to identify and punish anticompetitive behaviour in this industry.
