Johannesburg - The Competition Tribunal has dismissed a case against Ross Poultry Breeders.

However, it is continuing with cases against Astral Operations Limited and Elite Breeding Farms.

The three poultry companies applied to the tribunal in August to dismiss a case of anti-competitive behaviour brought against them by the Competition Commission.

On Thursday last week, the tribunal agreed to dismiss the case against Ross Poultry Breeders. It decided that Astral Operations and Elite Breeding Farms would still face allegations of anti-competitive behaviour.

The commission referred the case to the tribunal in June 2008.

Astral, Elite and Ross Poultry had argued that the case referred against them differed in material respects from the complaint originally brought to the commission.

Country Bird and Supreme Poultry had brought the original complaint to the commission.

The commission argued that Country Bird Holdings [JSE:CBH] and Supreme Poultry had supplemented their original complaint before the Commission referred it to the tribunal.
