Italy fines Unilever for abuse of dominant position in ice cream

ROME, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Italy’s antitrust agency said on Wednesday it had fined Unilever’s Italian unit more than 60 million euros ($70.7 million) for abuse of its dominant position in the country’s ice cream market.

It said Unilever had abused its position regarding single-wrapped so-called impulse ice creams, intended for immediate consumption, which it sells through its “Algida” brand. ($1 = 0.8486 euros) (Reporting by Gavin Jones; Editing by Isla Binnie)
