Block the Kroger and Albertsons $25 billion merger

We are calling on the the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division to block the $25 billion merger between Kroger and Albertsons.

Together, these companies own dozens of chains, including Safeway, Vons, Harris Teeter and Fred Meyer and reach a combined 85 million households.

The deal would squeeze consumers already struggling to afford food force out competition and concentrate power among the largest chains, driving up prices.

Why is this important?

Recently, Kroger and Albertsons announced plans to merge.

Together, Kroger and Albertsons own dozens of chains, including Safeway, Vons, Harris Teeter and Fred Meyer and reach a combined 85 million households.

The new mega-deal would have a huge impact on grocery shopping in America and almost certainly put more rural towns and Black and Latino neighborhoods in cities at risk of becoming ‘food deserts’ as more local grocers are driven out of business.

The National Grocers Association, which represents small retailers and wholesalers, said the merger would put smaller competitors at an “unfair disadvantage” and increase “anticompetitive buyer power over grocery suppliers.”

Please join us in demanding that the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division block the Kroger and Albertsons $25 billion merger.
