FTC keeping eye on drinks battle


Share post:

THE FAIR TRADING COMMISSION (FTC) is flexing its muscle as the hostile takeover battle for control of local beverage conglomerate Banks Holdings Limited (BHL) intensifies.

In hand-delivered correspondence to BHL’s chief executive officer Richard Cozier last Thursday, the FTC’s director of Fair Competition Antonio Thompson warned the company that the quasi-judicial body was keeping a hawk’s eye on developments.
