Really, don't sell low even if you are scare to keep the nests.
snip......., we will surpass that figure of Rm6400/Kg....providing that we didn't allow the buyers to drag us by the nose. We will negotiate but will never bow down to pressure from someone trying to make hugh profit out of us...like the farmers who plant and sweat on his field to earn so little but the middlemen earn many times more.
That's my ambition and hope we share these, too.
Don't forget that the retail - over the counter price of EBN has hardly dropped, not in proportion with the price of raw EBN.
Some middlemen make much much more by adulterating our raw EBN, and in the past, turning them into 'Red' nests and causing all this trouble.
Why should the farmers bear the lower prices whilst the middle men take the majority of the profits.
I have not harvested since CNY
