Merchant Law Group LLP is pursuing national class action litigation on behalf of all Canadians who have, between 2001 and 2017, purchased packaged bread from certain retailers in Canada, and were subjected to paying higher prices due to a price-fixing conspiracy in the grocery industry (including Loblaws and Superstore, Weston Foods, Sobeys, Metro, Wal-Mart Stores, and Giant Tiger Stores).
On November 1, 2017, the Competition Bureau of Canada executed raids with search warrants at the head offices of some of the defendants in a criminal investigation regarding the alleged price fixing of packaged bread in Canada since 2001.
In December, 2017, Loblaw Companies Limited and George Weston Limited admitted to participating in the scheme to fix the prices of packaged bread in Canada for more than 14 years.
