You're right. No one can imagine what the wholesale price is in relation to the shelf price. They may have nothing to do w/ each other. Ever heard of "loss leader"?

And how about the term "mark up". A 25% mark up isn't the wholesale price plus 25% of the wholesale price. It's the retail price minus 25% to get to the wholesale price.
Which has little to do w/ adulteration I guess.
