Front Page Catering and Cherry Bim Pty Limited - proposed merger

Summary

Front Page Catering and Cherry Bim Pty Ltd - proposed merger

Market definition

The supply of kosher catering services in Sydney by caterers approved by Kashrut Authority

Competition analysis

The ACCC considered that the proposed merger was unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the relevant market because barriers to entry (primarily the need for Kashrut Authority approval and customer loyalty to existing caterers) were reasonably low. In addition, there is a real question as to whether the market is a substantial market pursuant to section 50(6) of the Trade Practices Act 1974.
