TO PRODUCERS including MANUFACTURERS AND GROWERS AND RETAILERS:

........i e - ON a typical $8 stick and $23 what is the breakdown between farming through harvest, harvest through warehousing, warehousing through finished product, distribution including shipping, marketing and promotion, soft cost allocations such as administration and insurance and corporate charges, retailer mark-up etc etc..........the bolded items seem to be the MOST defined as being a good or bad crop, good or bad effective exposure and efficient delivery, and lastly the retailers ability to make a buck carrying the brand

also why do some retailers seem to receive favorable treatment from some producers yet cannot or will not carry other manufactures product ?

thanks in advance to those HONEST manufacturers who are BRAVE enough to respond here - frankD
