Thursday, 8th December 2016:  Woolworths Group is pleased the Federal Court of Australia today dismissed proceedings brought by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission concerning supplier relations in December 2014. 

Justice Yates found that Woolworths did no engage in unconscionable conduct in relation to a program known as "Mind the Gap". 

Justice Yates accepted all Woolworths' witnesses evidence and rejected all 13 propositions put forward by the ACCC that were alleged to have constituted the unconscionable conduct. 

"We defended the case because we firmly believed we did not act unconscionably and we did not break the law," Woolworths Chief Legal Officer and Company Secretary Richard Dammery said.
