Feesers sues Sodexho under Robinson-Patman

Harrisburg, PA—Regional distributor Feesers, Inc., has filed suit against global contract foodservice management firm Sodexho and food manufacturer Michael Foods, Inc., alleging discriminatory pricing under the 1936 Robinson-Patman Act. The Depression-Era legislation was designed to keep large grocers from negotiating cut-rate prices with suppliers that would ruin smaller competitors.

Feesers alleges in the suit that Sodexho demands favorable pricing from companies like Michael Foods as a foodservice management firm with large buying power but uses the favorable pricing to compete as a distributor. Feesers says it is not seeking monetary damages, only a court-ordered stoppage of the practice.
