Dairy products manufacturer obtains reversal of watchdog's adversary decision
MOSCOW, November 17 - RAPSI, Dmitry Shchitov. A commercial court of appeals sided with dairy products manufacturers in their appeal against the antimonopoly service's statements that they had unlawfully acted in concert, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) on Thursday.
The service declared Wimm-Bill-Dann and Allat in breach on the competition law on November 22, 2010. The violation boiled down to their concerted actions which resulted in setting and maintaining retail prices on such socially-important product as milk.
Wimm-Bill-Dann and Allat were fined.
