Wednesday, the Swedish Competition Authorities approved the proposed acquisition by Arla Foods AB of Falbygdens Ost, a company specialised in the maturation and flavoring of cheese.
Copenhagen Economics assisted Arla Foods AB in achieving a clearance decision by developing advanced models to predict the economic effects of the mergers, taking into account the specificities of the Swedish food retail market. These results were successful in removing the initial concerns raised by the Authority.
The merger was cleared on 11 March.
