AAI has opposed mergers and the growth of buyer power that threatens farmers, consumers, and the stability of the food supply chain.

Consolidation in agricultural biotechnology, fertilizer, food processing, manufacturing, distribution, and retail grocery has created a supply chain controlled by powerful firms with few rivals in critical markets. This has enhanced seller and buyer market power, squeezing farmers and reducing choice for American consumers. AAI’s advocacy demonstrates why merger, monopoly, and cartel enforcement is key to protecting competition and supply chain safety and stability.
