via Janetter for Mac in reply to AusAlmonds

@ivovic @R_Chirgwin I get your logic. But wouldn’t growers sell raw nuts at market price, and buyers decide to roast, salt, activate etc?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@ivovic @R_Chirgwin But nut producers get a sale, “activated” or not. Though they’d probably sell more wholesale if retail is cheaper.
