GVH Finds Minor Shortcomings in Tesco Follow-up Probe

Retail

Hungary's Competition Office (GVH) on Thursday said it conducted a follow-up probe of commitments made earlier by the local unit of U.K. supermarket chain Tesco to upgrade and expand its home delivery service, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

GVH found that Tesco basically fulfilled its commitments but imposed a HUF 7 million fine on the retail chain operator over minor shortcomings. 

In contrast to its commitments, Tesco informed customers of the item price of the originally ordered or the replacement products rather than their unit price, which made comparison difficult due to different packaging.

Tesco also missed the deadline for certain certification obligations to GVH.
