Fraud in meal vouchers, the leaders of Endered Italia investigated

The leaders of the company Edenred Italia, specialized in meal vouchers and restaurant tickets, are under investigation in an investigation by the Rome Prosecutor's Office which led to the seizure of 20 million today. In particular, prosecutor Carlo Villani charges four people, as well as the company, with the crimes of aggravated fraud, bid rigging and administrative offences. The facts concern a period between 2021 and 2023.

“The provision is adopted for administrative offenses – explains a note from the Rome Prosecutor's Office – dependent on the crimes of fraud against the State and disturbed freedom of auctions perpetrated, for the benefit of the entity, by 4 legal representatives who have succeeded one another over time”.
The investigations carried out by the Economic-Financial Police Unit of the Guardia di Finanza of Rome “have made it possible to reconstruct conduct, in the hypothesis of fraudulent accusations, in participation in a tender for the assignment of the meal voucher service for the Public Administration for an estimated amount based on the tender equal to 1,250,000,000, which would have resulted in the illegitimate awarding and related execution of 4 lots for a total value of approximately 580 million euros to the advantage of the company”, adds the note from the Capitoline Prosecutor's Office.
According to the accusation, “the successful company and issuer of the meal vouchers, during the submission of the offer, falsely declared the equivalence between the discount (or “discount”) applied to the PA and the commission (or “unconditional discount” ) applied to affiliated businesses, a prerequisite established under penalty of inadmissibility by the tender law.
With the stipulation of parallel agreements, however, the successful company would have effectively passed back part of the expected commission to the affiliated businesses, thus applying a greater discount than that applied to the Public Administration and, thus, violating the rules imposed by the tender”.
