There is and has been a great deal of confusion about food marketing margins and as to who gets what share of the consumer food dollar. As a farm producer, for example, you may be irritated at receiving a low price when the price of the finished or processed product appears to remain high at the retail level. As a consumer, on the other hand, you may simply be irritated that retail food prices appear to be high. Or you may also wonder what farmers are complaining about with food prices the way they are.
