On November 9 2016, after a nearly five-year investigation, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) finally concluded the Tetra Pak case. The SAIC’s landmark decision:
- imposed a Rmb667,724,176.88 (approximately $97 million) penalty on Tetra Pak – equivalent to 7% of the Swiss packaging giant’s 2011 China sales – for its abuse of a dominant position in China; and
- ordered Tetra Pak to cease its illegal conduct.
