Mainland smugglers have been going into Hong Kong,and buying up many items,including powdered milk,creating shortages in the city .

They then leave the city,by going into Shenzhen via rickshaws,and then onto mainland China,where they resell the goods for profit.

Going into Shenzhen circumvents the tariffs they would have to pay, going via more comfortable routes .

This has caused dischord amongst the HK residents,which inspired the limits on milk leaving the city .

This milk is used mostly for babies .
