ACCC permits Woolworths’ acquisition of three supermarkets

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) today announced it would allow Woolworths to acquire three Supa IGA supermarkets in Queensland. The ACCC concluded that this acquisition would not lessen competition in either the local or statewide markets.

Frontier (Australia) advised lawyers for Woolworths in their submissions to the ACCC on this matter.
