PepsiCo is under investigation by Russian authorities, according to local reports. Business daily Vedomosti said today (26 August) that the US-based drinks company has allegedly forbidden retailers from selling products made by competitors.

Citing an official from the Federal Antimonopoly Service, the paper reported that the case covers several Russian regions. A Pepsi representative told the paper that the company has not yet been notified of the investigation.

A similar case against Coca-Cola last month led to the company agreeing to bring all of its contracts into compliance with the Russian law.
