The Australian Competition and Consumer
Commission (ACCC) has announced further
agreements with major supermarket
operators to phase out restrictive provisions in
ALDI Foods, Franklins, SPAR Australia,
Australian United Retailers (trading as
Foodworks) and Metcash have all agreed
with the ACCC to not enter into any new
leasing agreement which includes restrictive
provisions. In the case of existing supermarket
leases, they have also agreed to not enforce
any restrictive provisions beyond five years
after the commencement of trading.
Similar agreements were reached with Coles
and Woolworths in September last year. As
Deal struck on supermarket leases
foreshadowed in September, the ACCC has
been committed to the phasing out of this
industry practice and has continued to engage
with other supermarket operators, following
the agreement reached with Coles and
Woolworths in 2009.
ACCC Chairman Graeme Samuel says these
further agreements means many more
shopping centres will no longer be “hamstrung
by restrictive provisions”.
According to the ACCC, the enforceable
undertakings entered into to date mean the
majority of restrictive provisions in leases
between supermarket operators and shopping
centre landlords have now been dealt with.

drinks – new relaxation ‘shots’ that offer a
non-alcoholic way to reduce stress. Examples
include Koma Unwind Chillaxation Shot and

of new products featuring the words ‘shot’
or ‘shots’ has doubled since 2006, reports
