Summary in English
The agri-food sectors of both Canada and the United States are experiencing a trend toward closer vertical coordination. New relationships with downstream product handlers and processors raise many questions for producers, including the level and nature of risk they face, control over management practices and access to markets. Public policy implications include the nature of price discovery and whether market failure indicates a revised role for governments in a vertically-linked agricultural sector.
