Mega, Supersol May Have to Sell a Dozen Branches

Mega moving back into the Haredi market.

Israel’s two biggest supermarket chains, Mega and Super-Sol, may have to sell off 15 to 20 branches in areas where there is very little competition, once the new Food Law goes into effect at the beginning of 2015. A study by the Antitrust Authority, which was published Wednesday, found a number of regions where the two chains enjoy over a 50% market share.
