Purchasing offices: to address the risks of harm to upstream and downstream competition identified in the process of requesting urgent interim measures, the Autorité accepts the commitments proposed by Casino, Auchan, Metro and Schiever.

The brands will amend the existing cooperation agreement on retailers’ own-brand labels and will reduce the scope of joint purchases of these products.

Certain families of agricultural products (milk, eggs) and products from struggling sectors (cooked cold meats, cider) are now excluded from the agreement, and the joint purchase volumes for others will be reduced to 15% maximum.
