Hungarian MGSZH Fines Auchan Ft 20.5mn
"The agricultural governance office MGSZH has fined hypermarket chain Auchan Ft 20.5 million for selling milk at less than its procurement price. In September, the dairy produce council had reported exceptionally cheap UHT milk products at Auchan and Tesco supermarkets.

The office found that Auchan had sold imported Czech “Tatra” and “Madeta” milk for under its procurement price, which is illegal.

Auchan has already paid the fine. The investigation at Tesco is ongoing.

According to the Agriculture Ministry, some imported milk is sold at Ft 115-145 per litre, although the standard price is at least Ft 170-180."
