AUSTRALIA - The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is seeking comments regarding Baiada Poultry Pty Ltd's proposed acquisition of Bartter Enterprises Pty Ltd.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued a Statement of Issues (SoI) on Baiada Poultry Pty Ltd's acquisition of Bartter Enterprises Pty Ltd.

The ACCC invites further submissions from the market by 27 January 2009. To allow for submissions in response to the SoI, the ACCC's final decision date will be deferred until 11 February 2009.
