Complaints dismissed

The Competition Policy Advisory Group has ruled that four of the seven complaints it received in the past year were unsubstantiated. This included a case in which a supermarket allegedly raised the retail price of a supplier's products above an agreed level and replaced them when it launched similar products under its own brand. The group suggested the government consider the supplier's views in its review of competition policy. The group is still investigating three complaints.
