Hungary's Competition Office (GVH) on Friday said it has recommended easing rules requiring catering establishments to keep beverages from multiple suppliers in stock in light of challenges the sector faces, state news wire MTI.

After conducting a probe of beverage procurement in the sector, GVH said it proposed suspending the drinks requirement, at least during the state of emergency, in light of the impact of the energy crisis, labor shortage, and economic uncertainty related to the war.

The proposal would mean "significant relief", especially for smaller establishments where consumer demand for craft beverages is low, it added.

GVH is inviting comments from industry insiders on a draft report on the probe until March 13.
