We are pleased to offer a full range of nuts, most of which are to Soil Association organic standard. We pack many ourselves and can offer various size combinations, with a standard 10% case discount on all purchases. Included in our nut range are all sorts of almonds, brazil nuts, cashew nuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and walnuts.
In essence, we can supply most, if not all, of your bulk nut needs. If we have not got it, then it probably is not available!
Of course, the main benefit of buying nuts in bulk is the price. As nut prices rise (as they are at the moment, and have been for some considerable time), then you will know that you have bought at the lowest price and are insulated from future increases for some time. One of the main problems with increasing nut consumption worldwide is that it takes years for a tree to mature and produce nuts - so supply does not keep up with demand. The demand for nuts is growing in areas such as China, where walnuts are an important part of the diet, and so the price of nuts relative to other items is likely only to rise.
There are other benefits to buying nuts in bulk that you might not immediately consider:
If you are buying nuts in bulk, it's prudent to understand how best to store them. Below, we have some general advice.
Make sure the nuts are fully dried before storing. (Not necessary for chestnuts.)
Use an air-tight container to maintain the proper moisture level.
Keep nuts away from foods with a strong smell, such as onions. One of the good things about nuts is that they can absorb the taste of other foods - but you don't want them taking on unwanted smells!
Store shelled nuts at room temperature for up to three months. For longer storage, consider keeping shelled or unshelled nuts in the refrigerator for up to six months, or in the freezer for a year or more.
Buying nuts in bulk means that the cost of each nut is less. This cost saving may result in you using more nuts (which is great for us)! Among the things you could consider making with the extra nuts are:
The great thing with buying in bulk is that it expands the imagination: if you have some spare bulk nuts, then what you can do with them is only limited by your own ideas - let us know any good ones you come up with!
At Naturally Good Food we sell lots of great nuts, many in bulk sizes. As a consequence of selling so many nuts:
