The merger of Artasan ehf. and Matur og pökkun ehf

The Icelandic Competition Authority (ICA) has examined the merger between Artasan ehf. and Matur og pökkun ehf. Artasan ehf. handles the import, registration, marketing and wholesale of generic bulk pharmaceuticals and health products in cooperation with foreign suppliers. Matur og pökkun ehf. is engaged in wholesale activities and specialise in importing and distributing various food products, in particular confectionery, biscuits, dried fruit and nuts, but also other products such as cleaning and consumables. The ICA concluded that there were no grounds to intervene because of the merger, as there were no indications that a dominant market position would be formed or that the merger would otherwise lead to a significant distortion of competition.
