Oslo Economics supported Foodora in relation to NCA’s investigation

10.02.2022 - Competition, market and regulation

The Norwegian Competition Authority have investigated Foodora, suspecting an abuse of dominance.

The Norwegian Competition Authority (NCA) recently closed its investigation of Foodora, following commitments from Foodora not to use exclusivity clauses. The NCA suspected that Foodora had a dominant position and raised concerns related to exclusivity clauses with restaurants. Such exclusivity clauses could in principle make it difficult for others to enter the market.

Together with Selmer, Oslo Economics supported Foodora in relation to NCA’s investigation. Using economic theory, extensive and novel information gathering, and insights from Foodora, we analysed and assessed the concerns of the NCA.
