The German Competition Authority fines sugar producers for concluding anticompetitive agreements on sales areas, quotas and prices (Zuckerkartell)

Bundeskartellamt imposes fines on sugar manufacturers* Today the Bundeskartellamt has imposed fines amounting to around 280 million euros on the three major German sugar manufacturers Pfeifer & Langen GmbH & Co.KG, Cologne, Südzucker AG Mannheim/Ochsenfurt, Mannheim, and Nordzucker AG, Braunschweig, for concluding anticompetitive agreements on sales areas, quotas and prices.

They took place over several years up to the Bundeskartellamt's search in 2009 and in some cases date back to the mid '90s.
