On average, farmers receive about 19 cents out of every consumer dollar spent on food, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The rest of that dollar pays for processing, distribution, advertising and other costs.
The cost of energy and its impact on businesses, which process, ship and store our food has a significant impact on food prices.
In addition, labor costs affect every part of the food-value chain.
As labor costs increase, our food can become more expensive.
What can 50 cents buy you?
