Trade differences

Cologne, 22.02.2011

In the mass flow documentation for the first quarter of 2011, the dual systems were required for the first time to separately disclose the shares of authorising companies to the clearing office. This also includes volume from several major food retailers who have recently with increasing frequency requested authorisation from their suppliers for the licensing of sales packaging on their behalf. This practice is used by trade outlets to bypass the stipulations of the German Packaging Ordinance and the resolutions passed by the State Waste Committee (LAGA). These stipulate that sales packaging on which the manufacturer is named as the producer must be exclusively licensed by the manufacturer and not by the retailer. In addition, in the clearing office documentation for the first quarter of 2011 this volume was evidently not specified as requested. “The shares of authorising companies in the Q1 documentation predominantly originate from Liz GmbH, and there is only a small amount of additional volume. It is therefore possible to conclude that the afore-mentioned cases of ‘indirect’ trade licensing – contrary to the contractual obligations from the clearing agreements – were not disclosed by the relevant dual systems. This means that the behaviour of precisely those market participants who are demanding transparency so heatedly in public is anything but transparent,” remarked Raffael A. Fruscio, shareholder of the Reclay Group.
