“Antitrust is really simple, it’s very narrow, it focuses on a simple set of metrics but it largely ignores unique features of agricultural markets like food safety and reliability. If we get these big conglomerates in our food supply chain – are we going to have quality, are we going to have reliability, are we going to preserve safety? Whenever you have a small number of producers your supply chain becomes very fragile, bottle-necked in parts and that is not a good outcome”
– Diana Moss, Vice President and Director of the American Antitrust Institute
