Mizkan Group / Premier Foods plc

OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by Mizkan Group of the sweet pickles and table sauces business of Premier Foods plc.

Affected market: Pickled foods

No. ME/5824/12

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition of certain products of Premier Foods by Mizkan Group does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
