Court decision - Coca-Cola again at Edeka - Economy

In the dispute between the beverage manufacturer Coca-Cola and the food retailer Edeka over purchase prices, the Hamburg Regional Court has prohibited a delivery stop by Coca-Cola. The manufacturer stopped supplying Germany's largest grocer last week after Edeka rejected demands for higher prices. Edeka had made it credible that a price increase demanded by Coca-Cola was probably inappropriate, the Hamburg Regional Court said. By setting the price and enforcing it with the help of a delivery stop, the respondent is abusing a dominant position in the market. This is anti-trust behavior.
