Green light for REWE take over of 15 “mein real” supermarket locations

On 30 October 2023, the German Competition Authority, Bundeskartellamt, granted unconditional approval to major supermarket chain REWE on its proposed takeover of 15 supermarket locations of “mein real”.  

Having conducted a comprehensive Phase I investigation, the Bundeskartellamt concluded that the planned transaction does not raise competition concerns on any of the affected markets and consumers would have access to a sufficient number of alternative supermarkets. 

RBB's team, led by Christian Ehmer and supported by Alina Gruschka, assisted both Parties, working alongside Flick Gocke Schaumburg.
