SAO PAULO (Dow Jones)--BRF Brasil Foods (BRFS3.BR, BRFS) said Wednesday that the restrictions imposed by antitrust regulator Cade affect about 12% of 2010 sales volume.
Cade approved the merger of Sadia SA and Perdigao SA Wednesday, but required BRF, formed by the merger of Brazil's biggest food processors, to sell minor brands as well as to suspend the Perdigao brand for as long as five years for some products.
The restrictions will affect 702,000 tons of annual sales volume, or about 12% of the 6.1 million tons of food products that BRF sold last year. BRF said the restrictions on Perdigao affect about one-third of sales volume.
