The cartel thing was big in the 1970s, but the industry has been clean (ish) since then. My ex father-in-law was a readymix driver back in those days, and everyone down their road had a poured concrete drive - amazing, eh!? ;)
Nowadays, competition is so keen, and everyone knows what everyone else is charging that it can see that a price fix could be in place.....but there isn't.
You *do* get fibres showing at the surface when they're added as reinforcement, but a simple blow torch burns them off in no time at all. They can be a problem with polished concrete floor slabs, but for a garage base, I wouldn't worry in the slightest.
