The ACCC has blocked the Woolworths acquisition of PFD subject to a statement of issues (see Media Release link below).
IFDA has played a significate role in this decision, ably supported by like industry peak bodies; sympathetic to its cause. IFDA will continue to champion the independent food distributor and industry, maintaining a vigilant approach to retail disruptors.
Through IFDA, NAFDA Foodservice will continue to represent its valued Members and the industry as a whole, as this is far from over yet, however in the interim good news.
