Juroviesky and Ricci LLP Files a Class Action Against the Major Chocolate Manufacturers

    TORONTO, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - The law offices of Juroviesky and Ricci LLP have
filed a class action lawsuit in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against
the Canadian divisions of the major Chocolate manufacturers, namely Nestle,
Hershey, Cadbury, and Mars for allegedly colluding to fix the prices of their
chocolate products.
    The suit claims that the Defendants conspired to inflate the price of
their products by 5% or more at least three times during the Class Period, in
violation of a variety of statutes including the Competition Act, and the
various provincial Consumer Protection Acts. Chocolate sales in Canada in 2007
were approximately $1.4 Billion.
    The class currently includes all persons resident in Canada that consumed
chocolate products in Canada since February, 2004.

Court of Justice is the result of an extensive and independent investigation
