Overcharging on Afghanistan Food Supply Contract – Criminal Case

Supreme Foodservice GmbH (f/k/a Supreme Foodservice AG) and Supreme Foodservice FZE settled criminal charges of overbilling the government on a contract to provide food and bottled water to U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The companies pleaded guilty to major fraud against the United States (Supreme GmbH also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit major fraud and wire fraud) and paid $288.4 million in restitution, forfeiture, and fines. The government alleged that Supreme Foodservice defrauded the Department of Defense on the Subsistence Prime Vendor contract between July 2005 and April 2009. Supreme Foodservice charged the government approximately $48 million in improper mark-ups by concealing that a subcontractor through which it purchased goods was a wholly owned and controlled subsidiary.
