Swiss probe Heineken’s Eichhof takeover

The Swiss anti-cartel body is investigating Heineken’s proposed takeover of the Lucerne-based Eichhof brewery, news agency ANP reports on Friday.

The competition authority fears that the takeover means just two players would dominate the Swiss drinks market – Heineken/Eichhof and Carlsberg/Feldschlösschen.
Heineken announced the €171m takeover in April. The anti-cartel probe is expected to take four months.
