The article is about the German beer market.


The investigation proved (http://www.bundeskartellamt.de/SharedDocs/Meldung/DE/Pressemitteilungen/2014/13_01_2014_Fernsehbiere.html), according to Cartel Office President Andreas Mundt, that the companies had entered into price-fixing agreements via personal and telephone contacts. In 2006 and 2008, they agreed on price increases for keg beer of 5 to 7 per hectoliter (1 hectoliter = 26.4 gallons). In 2008, they also agreed to raise the price of bottled beer by 1 per case.
