Controversy at Del Monte

Competition Authority exposes low standards and quality of Del Monte products, fines company Sh776,025

The Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK) on Friday fined Del Monte Sh776,025 after discovering that the company has misrepresented facts about its products.

According to CAK investigations, the actual standards of the tested Del Monte products and their quality did not match what they had printed on the packs.

The Authority also imposed a Sh20.8 million fine on Basco Paints after they were found to have contravened trade laws, among them price-fixing.
