Lithuania's Competition Council, a regulatory body tasked with ensuring a healthy market and preventing monopolistic or over-dominant competitive acquisitions, has claimed that the Seimas' decision to regulate milk purchasing prices strangles competition, limits the personal freedoms of farmers, and possibly violates the constitution.

The Competition Council also said that the abstract explanation that politicians provided for the global dairy crisis' effect on the Lithuanian dairy sector did not provide a basis for the size of the minimum milk prices set by the amendment.

The Competition Council believes that if the amendment were to come into effect, the long-term effects would be damaging to the entire dairy sector, first and foremost to consumers and milk producers.
