Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Applies For Clearance to Acquire Baker Hall

(LAWFUEL) – The Commerce Commission has received an application from Coca-Cola Amatil (NZ) Limited (CCA) seeking clearance to acquire the hot-fill bottling production line, brands and associated business assets of cordial products, bearing the brands Baker Halls and Barker Halls Originals, from Old Fashioned Foods Limited (OFF).

CCA is a company incorporated in New Zealand and is 100 percent owned by Coca-Cola Amatil Limited which is a publicly listed Australian company. CCA has the exclusive licence to bottle the ‘Coca-Cola brand’ beverages in New Zealand, and has five bottling plants in New Zealand.

The Baker Hall business is a cordial manufacturing and marketing business, based in Auckland, that is 100 percent owned by OFF, a manufacturer and exporter of food and beverages globally.

In considering the application, the Commission’s role is to determine whether the acquisition has the effect of substantially lessening competition in a market.

A public version of the application will shortly be available on the Commission’s website under Public Registers.
