Scrum is a methodology that focuses on the business value customers get from the product being developed. Teams aim to achieve the outlined product vision and to satisfy customer needs quickly and in a good quality.

The Scrum ProductOwner is the one to define this product vision, which requirements fit in it and what their priorities are. ProductOwner combines understanding of business processes and factors with technology specifics, so that (s)he can successfully convey customer requirements  to the team and to verify they are fulfilled after the sprint.
