Buy by the tonne sell by the unit: that's good business if you can get it

An great old friend of mine from the Cryovac days - Neville Davies - once told me "you've missed the boat, 12 months ago it was done". The year was about 1996 and my idea was to buy pig's ears (by the tonne) get Chapman's (where Neville was the production manager) to smoke them and then sell them to people who love their dogs.

Sorry to those of you who have vegetarian dogs.

At around $1.50 each, somebody will be making money. And it reminds me, my lovely late auntie Yvonne as early as the 1980s had told me the same thing worked with importing cheap watches too.
