ISLAMABAD (January 27 2007): Monopoly Control Authority (MCA) has served another show cause notice on M/s Unilever Pakistan Ltd for non-compliance to authority's order dated December 19, and the continued silence over MCA's notices.

Following hearings, MCA terminated Non-Competition Agreement between them and directed Unilever to return M/s Dalda Foods (Pvt) Ltd the sum of Rs 250 million, observing that the covenant constituted a restraint of trade and had the effect of lessening competition in the market.

According to details, M/s Unilever Pakistan Ltd and M/s Dalda Foods (Pvt) Ltd signed an agreement to transfer business, but later they also made another agreement of non-competition, under which, Dalda Foods was restricted to compete in vanaspati and oil businesses for the period of five years, in return of Rs 250 million. The authority termed this agreement as violation of monopoly laws.

Since, the Unilever did not responded to the authority's directives the authority issued them a reminder after the lapse of given timeframe.

The authority has issued again a show cause notice to M/s Unilever on January 26, providing them another opportunity to appear before the authority to clear their position for non-compliance of its orders. The official sources said that the authority reserves the right to take appropriate action against the company if it does not comply with its directives.

According to a press release, M/s Unilever Pakistan Ltd, sold the vanaspati and oils business other than margarine products to M/s Dalda Foods (Pvt) Ltd and executed a Non-Competition Agreement, in addition to the Agreement to transfer Business and received a sum of Rs 250 million for non-competition in vanaspati and oil business for a period of five years.

MCA's order dated December 19, 2006, terminated the Non-Competition Agreement with immediate effect and directed for refund of Rs 250 million to Dalda Foods (Pvt) Ltd, within 15-days of the order and report its compliance to the authority.

The order was dispatched to the undertaking, through registered A.D cover, vide letter dated December 19, 2006, but it failed to comply with the order of the MCA within the given timeframe. It further says, that Unilever was reminded vide letter dated January 11, 2007, to confirm compliance but it again failed to follow the order.

Since the failure of the undertaking attracts the provisions of sub-section (1) & (2) of Section 19 of the Ordinance, the MCA under the Chairmanship of Khalid A. Mirza decided to serve a show cause notice on Unilever under Section 19 of MRTPO 1970 on January 26, 2007, and the entity have been afforded an opportunity of being heard on February 9, 2007 at Islamabad.

does not understand one thing in the question. that dalda restricted unilever to not compete or dalda was restricted by unilever to non-compete.
