AAI President Diana Moss on Heinz-Kraft Merger in Washington Post

From Washington Post's Heinz will buy Kraft Foods in mega-merger for American food:  “All these food-space mergers give (buyers) the illusion of choice. They’re thinking, ‘Oh gosh, look at all these brands,’” said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute. “But what the consumer doesn’t see is the smaller and smaller number of manufacturers maintaining those brands. It doesn’t mean they compete with each other — they don’t — and that gives them significant power to raise prices and reduce choice.”
