Brussels puts conditions on banana giant’s merger with Chiquita. The Chiquita and Fyffes merger has the green light from the European Commission on condition that Fyffes ends its exclusivity deal with Maersk. Approving the banana suppliers’ merger, the commission said Fyffes must release Maersk from the exclusivity clause that prevents it providing shipping services to rival suppliers. Brussels is seeking to prevent competitors being shut out.
