Black Sash submission to the Competition Tribunal - 28 November 2010

The consent order agreement between the Competition Commission and Pioneer Foods in regard to alleged contraventions of Sections 4 1)(b)(i) and 4 1)(b)(ii) of the Competition Act 1998 (Act No 89 of 1998) on 28 November 2007.

The Black Sash herewith makes a submission to the Competition Tribubal in respect of the consent order agreement between the Competition Commission and Pioneer Foods. 

We make the submission because the issue influences the work we do and concerns ordinary consumers most of which are social grants recipients – children receiving the Child Support Grant, elders receiving the Older Persons Grant, and many other poor and unemployed who rely on these grants to buy food for their families.
