I think everybody who has the mental capacity to understand

knows that the end price of ANY item is dependent upon the material and operating costs to manufacture said item, farmed items included. Likewise we ALL complain about the rising cost of items important to us.

I can’t think of a single commodity whose price hasn’t risen, we all tweak our budgets (business operating budgets/personal budgets) to accommodate the increase. Some people have made the choice to eliminate meat or cut back on meat from their diets due to cost. Then there are people like me, who look to other places to maintain their carnivore diet.
