Non-producer cooperative interests and the anti-trust laws
Am. J. agric. Econ., Urbana, Ill 51(2): 335-41
US co-operatives' ability to enlist the assistance of non-producer and/or non-co-operative firms in their marketing efforts has been severely limited by recent Supreme Court decisions. In "Case-Swayne Co. vs. Sunkist Growers, Inc.", the court held that Sunkist, with nongrower members, was not a Capper-Volstead co-operative and therefore was not entitled to Capper-Volstead exemption from prosecution under section 1 of the Sherman Act.
