They order through electronic data interchange (EDI), which costs Kaune about $59,000 annually in operating expenses and depreciation. Kaune delivers the nuts to the stores and stocks them on the shelves. This distribution costs $45,000 per year.    The small grocers order in smaller lots that require special picking and packing in the factory; the special handling adds $20 to the cost of each case sold. Sales commissions to the independent jobbers who sell Kaune products to the grocers average 8 percent of sales. Bad debts expense amounts to 9 percent of sales.    Convenience stores also require special handling that costs $26 per case.
