Canada 's dairy sector operates under a supply management system based on planned domestic production, supervised pricing and strict controls on dairy product imports. The system was adopted for industrial milk in the early 1970s to address the unstable prices, uncertain supplies and fluctuating producers and processor revenues which were common in the 1950s and 1960s. By enforcing this system, farmers attempt to strike the most accurate balance between supply and demand of dairy products (Canadian Dairy Commission, 2010).
Another aspect to Hart’s superior financial efficiency comes with their choice to locate in the Eastern state of Georgia. In doing so Hart are bridging the West-East dairy supply gap, for which over 400 million pounds of milk ($100mn) are transported from West to East every month12, thus eliminating thousands of trucking miles each day. The Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), who pick up the milk and take it for packaging for retail, pay Hart a premium for being on the East coast.

A tariff forces up the cost of an imported good and causes it to be less competitive in the domestic economy. The Canadian government has enforced triple digit tariffs on imported dairy products to protect Canada’s dairy economy from the world. Hence, it is very costly to sell imported milk in Canada after the tariffs have been added to the selling price and thus few companies try to compete with Canadian companies. Consequently, Canadian farmers have an oligopoly for dairy production in Canada and subsequently the farmers are able to control the selling price of milk. The dairy farmers have formed a cartel that controls the quantity produced in order to keep prices high. (Cocktail Party Economiccs, p. 124) This joint collaboration allows farmers to raise the price of milk as high as it is profitable for them to do so. Therefore, the price of milk in Canada is far above the world price. As a result, farmers are very worried about what will happen to them if the dairy market becomes open to free trade and they have to compete with the world
