Antitrust Chronicle® - Retail Grocery Sector
Few sectors are as vital to modern life as the grocery industry. Napoleon famously derided the United Kingdom as a “nation of shopkeepers.” But in today’s urbanized, industrialized world, shopkeepers provide the link between nourishment and the people who require it.
Grocery businesses, as a key part of the economy (and indeed life in the 21st Century), are therefore subject to detailed antitrust scrutiny. This scrutiny of shopkeepers is the focus of this edition of the Antitrust Chronicle.
