  • MøllerGruppen’s companies in Latvia were in 2014 imposed a corporate fine totaling 7.3 million Euro due to alleged illegal collusion. MøllerGruppen strongly disagree with the basis for the fine and claim that the size of the fine is unfair and discriminatory in relation to the alleged irregularities. The case is brought before the Latvian judiciary and the expected judgment of First Instance in Q1 2017.

    By focusing on the right attitudes and systematic improvement work, MøllerGruppen’s operations shall help promote human rights, good labour and environmental standards, and zero tolerance for corruption. To strengthen this work and ensure that all our employees share the same basic vision in order to be able to make safe, correct choices, we have developed a Code of Conduct, which clarifies our basic ethical principles and guidelines.
