Following the Autorité’s decision last October in which it accepted the commitments made by Auchan, Casino, Metro and Schiever, reducing the scope of their joint purchases of own-brand label goods (see press release of 22 October 2020), it today issued a new decision regarding the purchase agreement between Carrefour and Tesco regarding their own-brand labels.

The Autorité makes binding the commitments made by Carrefour and UK retailer Tesco, which exclude certain product families (fruit and vegetables) from the own-brand label agreement, limit their cooperation for other product families (cotton, fresh cheese, blue cheese, etc.) and ensure SMEs the possibility of bidding for tenders launched by both retailers for their own-brand label goods.
