Press Release

Today, on 23 January 2024, the Chairman of the Competition Authority, Mr. Denar Biba, and representatives of the Albanian Competition Authority held a meeting in the Fier area with livestock farmers who, for several days, have been conducting economic protests.

This meeting took place in the context of concerns raised by farmers regarding the reduction of milk prices by processing factories, a reduction that, according to them, indicates an unfair competitive situation and has led to a financial crisis, forcing some of them to close their businesses.

The Albanian Competition Authority, currently, by decision no. 1045, dated 29.12.2023, has initiated an in-depth investigation into the market of production and wholesale of milk by the undertakings Erzeni shpk, Gjirofarma sh.a, ADG shpk (Lufra), and SHAKA Boboshtice shpk.

Through this investigation, as well as hearings with interested and affected parties, ACA will determine whether there are signs of restriction or distortion of competition. In case of findings of violations, will be taken appropriate measures in accordance with the provisions of Law no. 9121, dated 28.07.2003, “On Competition Protection”.
