35 Years Old Phosphates Cartel Busted

The Commission has busted a market-sharing and price-fixing cartel covering most of the EU that lasted from March 1969 until February 2004. The cartel involved the major producers of animal feed phosphates.

The hybrid procedure for cartels was used for the first time.
