Greek Watchdog Raids Pasta Producers Over Price Fixing Claims

 |  February 17, 2022

The Hellenic Competition Commission (HCC) carried out unannounced inspections at the premises of nine companies active in the supply and retail sale of pasta products.

The fact that the HCC has carried out inspections does not mean that the inspected undertakings have engaged in anti-competitive behavior, nor does it prejudge the outcome of the investigation itself, reported the regulator.

In the face of an unprecedented economic crisis, the HCC investigates and prosecutes any suspected infringement of Greek and EU antitrust laws which is brought to its attention through complaints, applications for leniency, or other sources of information, including its recently launched whistleblowing tool.
