|Nombre:||Competition Challenges in the Supermarket Sector with an Application to Latin American Markets|
This report provides a general background on the supermarket sector, including definitions of different food-selling retail formats, a history of the transforming of the sector and the rise of chain supermarkets, a listing of the major players in the Latin American supermarket sector, and a discussion of common pricing strategies by supermarkets. The report also discusses competition issues in the supermarket sector, including horizontal collusion, abuse of dominance, vertical contracts, and buyer power. Special features of the supermarket sector are highlighted throughout, with recent cases from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Germany, Mexico, the U.K., and the U.S. Supermarket mergers and acquisitions are also discussed, as are vertical mergers of supermarkets and suppliers. The paper addresses some concerns to competition authorities which include the internationalization of the supermarket sector with the rise of regional and international chains; regulation, including food-safety regulation and zoning regulation; deceptive trade practices; and consumer resistance to market change.
