Turkish Competition Authority’s First Hub-and-Spoke Cartel Decision

We contributed to the Journal of European Competition Law & Practice by unpacking the TCA’s first hub-and-spoke cartel decision. Unlike horizontal collusion between suppliers or between retailers, hub-and-spoke cartels require the involvement of both supplier(s) and retailer(s). The TCA recently found five grocery retailers and a cooking oil supplier liable for such behavior. Likewise documenting the hub-and-spoke cartel, the decision is also interesting in reflecting the TCA’s approach to rising inflation stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, besides unpacking the decision, we also provide some analysis that may inform readers about the economic background of the decision.
