Slovak Antitrust Office examines behaviour of soft drink maker Kofola

The Slovak Antitrust Office (PMÚ) is examining the conduct of soft drink producer Kofola, which was fined in the Czech Republic for concluding contracts with clients on common prices for re-sale of its products. The PMÚ is examining the situation in the Slovak market and if any indications of a violation of the law on protection of competition arise, it will initiate administrative proceedings, said PMÚ spokesperson Alexandra Bernáthová. According to Kofola spokesman Martin Klofanda, the company is not concerned about the PMÚ finding evidence similar to that in the Czech Republic. "Such procedures were not applied in Slovakia; it was only an error in the Czech Republic," he told the SITA newswire. SITA
