The noun produce refers to agricultural products (i.e. dairy produce is produced from cows; produced from = produce), whereas the noun product refers to manufactured goods (i.e. This cake is made from dairy products; it's a product = it's a result).
Cas makes a good point (as usual). However, cheese, for example, might be considered either a farm product or farm produce.
Way? No way... :wink: Cheese is a milk product. Don't get me started on head cheese. :D
Happy New Year!

Isn't it a dairy product? May your akema be, err, shite, too?
:D You're right.
I'm not sure what akemashite means. ake- means something like new beginning. -ma- is probably related to circle; maybe, come full circle, and -shite means, doing. omedetou means, congratulations, and gozaimusu marks formal, polite usage.
