EU News 237/2013
Brussels, 15 May 2013
The European Commission can confirm that on 23 April 2013 Commission officials undertook unannounced inspections at the premises of companies active in the sugar industry in several Member States. The inspections relate to the supply of white sugar. The Commission has reasons to believe that the companies concerned may have violated EU antitrust rules that prohibit cartels and restrictive business practices (Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union).
