SummaryConfoil Pty Ltd proposes to acquire Kingfoil Containers Pty Ltd. Both companies manufacture rigid foil containers for use in food packaging
Market definitionThe ACCC considers that the relevant market is the national market for the manufacture and supply of rigid foil containers
Competition analysisThe ACCC formed the view that the proposed acquisition is unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the national market for the manufacture and supply of rigid foil containers. The ACCC formed this view given that the merged entity is likely to be constrained by potential import competition. To a lesser extent, the availability of packaging substitutes is also expected to constrain the merged entity.
