On 10 November 2021, the Amsterdam District Court decided in favour of Sligro Food Group in proceedings brought by supermarkets Jumbo and Coop.

The claim, alleging breaches of warranties by Sligro Food Group connected with the sale of 130 EMTÉ supermarkets, was turned down on all points. Jumbo and Coop argued that Sligro had failed to provide accurate information about EMTÉ’s finances prior to the sale and purchase transaction. However, the court categorically dismissed this argument. We wish to congratulate Sligro Food Group on winning this case.

The Houthoff team that assisted Sligro Food Group with its legal defence included Jan Willem de Groot, Marjolein Heuten, Anne Stortelder, Tom Zuijderland and David van der Linden.
