23.05.2014, Vienna. The Cartel Court (to 26 Kt 19/14) imposed a fine on the 19.05.2014 (to 27Kt 22/14) in the amount of EUR 58.500 against Hirter due to vertical agreements with the grocery retail. ​

​The anticompetitive behavior affected the influence on final selling prices of certain brewery products in the period between 2006 and 2012. In the context of these vertical price agreement measures, Kurant prices and especially promotional prices were coordinated between Hirter and the grocery retail. These resale prices were, in some cases, transposed by the retail market.
