Supermarket chain Albert Heijn runs the risk of having to pay millions to its franchisees.
The franchisees would have lost millions because of the explanation that Albert Heijn gives to the franchise agreement. The Supreme Court agrees with the franchisees that concepts such as “taxed price” and “undivided margin” offer too much room for interpretation. The explanation of the Albert Heijn would lead to an unfavorable situation for the franchisees. The Supreme Court has referred the case back to the Court of Appeal.
