ZURICH, May 2 (Reuters) - Swiss food group Nestle confirmed on Wednesday it had reached an agreement with European retailers to settle a months-long pricing row.
“We are pleased that a balanced agreement has been reached and that Nestle products will soon be back on the shelves of the six members of the European retail alliance AgeCore,” a company spokesman said, confirming a report by Germany’s Lebensmittelzeitung.
Nestle has for months faced off with AgeCore, a Geneva-based group representing six European retailers — including Germany’s Edeka and Switzerland’s Coop — who had boycotted Nestle products as they sought better supply terms.
An Edeka spokesman confirmed the settlement but gave no further details.
