Reduction in fines for Heineken and Bavaria

On 16 June, the General Court reduced the fines imposed on Heineken, its subsidiary Heineken Nederland BV and Bavaria NV by the European Commission, in 2007, for their participation in a cartel on the Dutch beer market. The court found that the Commission had failed to provide sufficient evidence of the infringement in the hotel, restaurant and café (horeca) sector and therefore recalculated the fines. They were cut from €219.28m to €198m for Heineken and its subsidiary, and from €22.85m to €20.71m for Bavaria.
