The introduction should be clear and provide the issue to be discussed in the manuscript. Before the objective, authors should provide an adequate background, and a very short literature survey to record the existing solutions, to show which is the best of previous research, to show the main limitation of the previous research, to show what they hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper.[1] At the end of the paragraph, the author/s should end with a comment on the significance concerning the identification of the issue and objective of the research.[2] This article analyses the comparative competition law related to the abuse of a dominant market position using the strategy of predatory pricing by undertakings in the European Union (hereinafter ‘EU’). For this purpose, a precise case study of the Valio case has been made.[3] Antti Aine, Adjunct Professor of general competition law at the University of Turku as an expert in the field of European Competition Law, has been interviewed for this article.[4] Also, EU law on predatory pricing has been compared to the United States’ predatory pricing law.

Therefore, this article explores the following research questions; whether the EU Competition law policy is already excessively restrictive, and if so, what is the effect on the business development of undertakings with only one nationally dominant market position and, whether the products, which are legally classified as belonging to different product markets, belong de facto to the same product market in case of being fully interchangeable with each other?.
