Chocolate Prosecution Melts

The Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) has stayed the prosecution of Canada Inc., and several others who were  accused of participating in a conspiracy to fix the price of chocolates in Canada. The PPSC did not give reasons for this decision.

UPDATE:  The PPSC also stayed charges against Canada Inc. and one of its former executives on November 17, 2015.

Previously, Canada Inc. pleaded guilty to price fixing and was fined $4 million.

The makers have already agreed to pay about $23.2 million to settle price fixing class actions.
