Although some processing factories are located close to the farmers, most of the factories are located in or close to Chittagong and Khulna city. In Khulna there are about 35-40 active factories and in Chittagong 10-15. Factory sizes are relatively small compared to other companies. In Khulna there are about five dominant packers. Important to keep in mind is that many packers have multiple factories, at least in name, that can be located at the same premises.
