The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) fined German-based Kühne and Dutch firm Burg €4.6 million and €1.8 million, respectively.

Burg had two employees fined and Kühne had three employees fined on an individual basis in addition to the companies fines.

The ACM stated that the fines were set higher due to serious nature of the cartel which fixed the prices of vinegar sold to industrial clientes from 2001 to 2012.
