    Question manufacturer and producer

    hello, I'm translating a biz reading into my native language (vietnamese). And I have difficult distinguishing between " manufacturer" and " producer". Could you explain it for me, please? thanks for your help.

    Re: manufacturer and producer

    A manufacturer makes things in factories or plants.
    A producer grows things, a farmer produces food, for example. Sells it to someone who manufactures it into the finished product.

    You take apples which a farmer has produced, take them to a plant, and they manufacture apple juice, apple sauce, etc. etc.

    I am not a teacher.
