The results showed that retailer market margin for the concern studies for the years 1996, 1999 and 2006 were Iran's Rls. 480, 562.8 and 1940 ( for the first class type) and 2270 (for the second class type) respectively. The marketing cost percentages for the same period calculated and were equal to 53.5 per cent, 43.5 per cent and 37.2 per cent (I case of first class type) and 50.41 per cent (in the case of second class type). The wholesaler market margin were Rls. 440, 998.25 and (1000 and 1410) in that order, and  total market margins were Rls, 920, 1561 and (2940 and 3220) in that order. The waste function estimated and results showed that the variables such as time distance of first harvesting, box weight, Distance from wholesaler market and total time remaining in the retailer shop had direct and significant effect on wastage amount.
