DENMARK: Carlsberg checks deal claims - report
Carlsberg is reviewing its contracts with local buyers after authorities have deemed them to be illegal, according to press reports. Danish newspaper Borsen claims today that Carlsberg has stepped back from countering that its deals with Danish restaurant owners do not thwart competition.
Authorities in Denmark had said that the exclusive contracts between Carlsberg and local buyers had quashed the possibility of competitors vying for trade. The company had subsequently contended that the deals were legal.
But in an article this morning in Borsen, Carlsberg has toned down its language. Carlsberg's sales director for Denmark, Claus Bo Jacobsen, told Borsen: "It may be that we have made a misstep, but I need to see the law clarified in writing."
Borsen says in the article that Jacobsen is due to meet with Danish authorities next week in an attempt to seek clarification.
