NPrice/UnitWhen possible, CEH calculated the price per unit based on total price divided by the number of units. If the manufacturer's suggested retail price was not available, we tried to gather information from one retailer (Webstaurant) for consistency. However, if a product was not available on Webstaurant, we gathered prices from at least two or three retailers to provide either an average or the price per unit range available.
