The Danish brewer Carlsberg has rejected a claim by the EU Commission that from 1993-1996 it had an agreement with rival brewer Heineken to limit competition in their respective home markets.

"The Commission is of the initial opinion that Carlsberg and Heineken during the period 1993-1996 had an agreement to limit competition," it said in a statement.

In May 2000, the Commission conducted a dawn raid at Carlsberg. The Danish brewer has now received a so-called statement of objections from the EU.

"Carlsberg does not concur with the opinion of the Commission. The Com-mission's statement will now be studied in detail and Carlsberg will then reply to the statement," the brewer said.


Companies: Carlsberg, Heineken
