Loblaw’s is giving customers FREE $25 Gift Card due to Bread price fixing scheme.

On Tuesday December 19, 2017, Loblaw Companies Ltd. and George Weston’s Bakery division, alerted the Competition Bureau that they had become aware of an industry wide bread price-fixing scheme that took place from late 2001 to March 2015.

The arrangement involved the co-ordination of price increases from wholesale to retail of a few packaged breads.

Price-fixing penalties include up to $24 Million in fines or 14 years imprisonment or both.

No criminal charges or penalties will be laid, because the companies notified the Competition Bureau once they became aware of the situation.

Employees involved in the arrangement, are no longer employed by the companies.

The companies have since increased their compliance programs to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

The Competition Bureau executed warrants last month to search the offices of other grocers, however no charges have been laid.

 

As a gesture of goodwill for those affected by the bread price-fixing, Loblaws will be offering a FREE $25 Gift Card to customers.

How to Receive your FREE $25 Gift Card:

Effective immediately, you can go online and provide your email address to be notified once registration opens for the Loblaw Gift Card.

Customers who declare they bought certain breads (TBA), prior to March 1, 2015 at some of it’s stores (TBA), will be elligible to receive a $25 Gift Card from Loblaws.
