UOKiK has brought charges against Mlekpol. It’s about taking advantage of your advantage

The Mlekpol Dairy Cooperative is one of the largest producers of milk and dairy products in Poland. Products of brands such as Łaciate, Milko, Mazurski Smak and Rolmlecz are made in 13 processing plants. Mlekpol buys milk from agricultural producers who are also members of the cooperative. The cooperation takes place on the basis of contracting agreements. The parties operate on the basis of a prepared contract template, and a single supplier has no influence on its content. The findings of the Office so far show that the terms of this contract may include provisions unfavorable to suppliers.

Therefore, the president of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, Tomasz Chróstny, accused Mlekpol of unfair use of contractual advantage. They concern, inter alia, the possibility of unilaterally changing the milk purchase price list, also retroactively.
