Feed group to win $500m compensation?

US lawyers representing animal feed groups are expected to win $500m in compensation from Swiss drugs firm Roche over the disclosure that it was involved in a bulk vitamin price fixing cartel.

Roche, which agreed last month to pay a record $500m fine to the US government after admitting operating the cartel, controls nearly half of the world market for vitamins.
