Another Investigation from Turkish Competition Board: Red Bull

Another Investigation from Turkish Competition Board: Red Bull

Turkish Competition Authority recently published in its web page another announcement on the initiation of a different investigation. This time, the investigation initiated against energy drink giant Red Bull.

Upon complaints against Red Bull Gıda Dağıtım ve Pazarlama Tic. Ltd. Şti. (“Red Bull”), Turkish Competition Board (“Board”) decided to initiate a preliminary investigation concerning Red Bull’s exclusivity and resale price maintenance activities. The information and documents acquired together with the observations made within the preliminary investigation phase were found sufficient by the Board to initiate a fully-fledged investigation against Red Bull to see whether Red Bull’s arrangement leads to de facto exclusivity and Red Bull applies resale price maintenance.

Investigation team has 6 months (well, this could also be extended another 6 months) to prepare the investigation report which will include their finding and opinion on the case.

We will see…

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone, myself and Bugra will be publishing posts on the legal developments here. Whereas our focus will mostly be on competition policy (as the name of the blog indicates), we will do our best not to omit other areas of law as well (especially corporate law). We will try to evaluate (to the extent of our capacity) important case-law together with the important legislative developments. We also intend to mention and sometimes criticize (of course lightly) the important monographies published recently. We also want to use this blog to raise certain questions (not to confuse readers of course but to make them think). 

Well, we basically aim to keep the readers fully updated. Let’s see if we can do it!
