As a result of a boycott of leading joint purchasing organisation for wholesalers Maxxam (www.maxxam.nl) products of confectionary company Haribo (www.haribo.com) were recently not or rarely available at numerous petrol stations from Shell, Total, railway stations, wholesalers Makro and Hanos and hundreds of outlets in the hotel and catering sector. The background was a discussion as to buying conditions. Haribo strongly objected to the boycott. Finally, Haribo and Maxxam reached an amicable solution and without preliminary relief proceedings.
Defares assisted Haribo in this matter.
