There is already a price differ when you "break bulk". A truck full of oranges is cheaper per orange than if they're in a bag of 4.Exploitation is taking something without giving an equal value back.
It's legal, but it's not fair.
There should be no losers in a commercial transaction. If there is, we find exploitation.
It's more of a legal rather a philosophical subject imo.
Labour cost is just one element in selling a bag to Mrs Assumpta O'Reilly. The oranges were grown by Hernan Jesus de Orellana in Sevilla. Someday she may buy them direct from him. Until then, there's no exploitation.
