   Who Started Canada’s Alleged Bread Cartel?

An employee of one of Canada’s largest bakeries allegedly made a PowerPoint presentation at an industry gathering about low bread profits and had a plan to orchestrate price increases with retailers, according to information made public Thursday about the Competition Bureau’s investigation into an alleged bread price-fixing cartel.

The new information is contained in Information to Obtain documents in the case; ITO applications contain unproven allegations made before a judge to obtain search warrants. They are untested.

The ITOs were released earlier this year, but several paragraphs that had been under a publication ban were made public on Thursday and they point to an employee of Canada Bread as the originator of the alleged cartel.
