Kraft Food and the CFTC: In April of 2015 the CFTC filed a civil enforcement complaint against Kraft Foods Group, Inc. and Mondelez Global LLC, alleging manipulation and attempted manipulation of the prices of cash wheat and wheat futures, as well as alleging the violation of speculative position limits against the two companies.  (To read more about this, visit the CFTC website).  In January, Kraft and Mondelez requested that a federal appeals court rule on two of the CFTC’s theories prior to the trial.  The Commission claims Defendants’ motion fails to meet the high bar for successful interlocutory appeals.
