berry pulp plus water is 1000kg 100% .99% water, rest is 10kg of pulp.So 100% of water is990kg and a 1% loss of that is 9.9kg. So the now drying berries weigh 9.9 kg less than when fresh. 990.1 kg of second class product. Top up or renegotiate the price or both. What would the average cruiser do with that many berries?
