On 25 November 2019, the agricultural cooperative Océalia notified the Autorité de la concurrence of its proposed merger by takeover of agricultural cooperative Natéa.

The Autorité examined the overlap between the parties’ activities, notably in the former region of Limousin, and particularly in the département of Haute-Vienne (87).

Following its investigation, the Autorité considered that the level of competition, notably in terms of price, will remain sufficient to rule out any risk of the transaction harming competition.

The Autorité therefore cleared the transaction unconditionally.
