Speculation is growing that the carve up of Golden Wonder between Walkers and Snack Factory will be referred to the Competition Commission. Wholesalers and manufacturers have registered objections with the Office of Fair Trading, and at least one major multiple is also believed to joined them. The wholesalers and manufacturers main concern was the power the deal would give Walkers in the snack category, because it would take over Golden Wonder's van sales fleet and the Wotsits brand. But the multiples are believed to be objecting to the concentration of own label production capacity the deal would give Snack Factory. An OFT spokesman said a decision on whether to refer the deal was due to be made by July 17. {{NEWS }}
