What is 'Absorbed'

1. In a general business sense, when a cost is treated as an expense instead of being passed on to the customer in the form of higher prices.

Explaining 'Absorbed'

1. For example, if a peanut butter company's cost for peanuts increases from 50 cents per jar to $1.00 per jar but the company keeps the cost of one jar at $3 instead of raising it to $3.50, it has absorbed the increase in peanut prices.
