jayphat: Lemme get this straight: lentils and peas are exported via container to China, to be packaged, then shipped RIGHT BACK to North America for sale? I'm no logistics wizard but wouldn't it be easier to have the factory be here in North America and save on the travel time, plus the risk of spoilage in that travel?
