How do they determine the cost of produce? Like does it have to do with supply and demand?
bananas are so cheap but a lot of other healthier produce costs a lot more. Can someone please explain this to me? Thank you!8 months ago - 1 answers
it does have to do with supply and demand, plus the cost to produce and ship. just like with gas, when a commodity becomes a bit scarce, the prices go up. due to the drought many produce items are becoming scarce, and the cost to produce that crop going increasingly higher, so price increases are passed along to the final consumer. you and me. right now the same applies to all produce, some meat, and other vegetables. it will cost us more to eat, bottom line.8 months ago
