Namely, in March 2018 the Croatian Competition Agency (CCA) found that the Croatian Plodine d.d. used its strong bargaining power and imposed unfair trading practices on one of its suppliers within the meaning of the Croatian Act on the prohibition of unfair trading practices in the business-to-business food supply chain (UTPs Act). The fine imposed in the decision of the CCA amounted to HRK 1.008 million ($151,834).

This is the first decision of a court that has been taken in Croatia with respect to unfair trading practices in the business-to-business food supply chain.

The decision of the Administrative Court in Rijeka is not legally valid yet, taking into account that Plodine can lodge an appeal at the High Administrative Court of the Republic of Croatia.
