Dear Ms da Cruz
Thank you for writing to us about your local grocery stores stock supply concerns. The ACCC will continue to actively engage with governments and businesses about potential authorisations that support coordination between competitors that is ordinarily prohibited but which is necessary and in the public interest at this time. For example the application by supermarkets allowing a coordinated approach to best ensure grocery supply. The ACCC is assessing the market during this time and we welcome reports about potential conduct that may raise concerns under the laws we administer.
We hope the information we have provided is helpful.
Yours sincerely
