The statement that you have given here is the law of supply. 

The law of supply has to do with how much of a given good or service producers will be able and willing to produce and sell at a given price.  (This price is the price they can sell it for, not the price of producing it.)  Not surprisingly, the law holds that producers will supply more of a good or service (all other things being equal) when they can sell that good for a higher price.  This is the law of supply.
