Most of our bulk lines have their own individual category. However, when we first set the categories up, there was a small remainder that did not fit into our existing categories. This is therefore a catch-all category, containing all the lines that did not fall logically into any of the existing sections.
Don't forget - if you can't find an item, just ask: we are happy to help.
For food producers who work on a small scale, it can sometimes be difficult to:
For small-scale producers, Naturally Good Food offers a solution to all of these difficulties.
For medium-scale food producers, and indeed, larger-scale producers looking for one-off ingredients or the ability to source new ingredients for product development, Naturally Good Food can provide a great cost-effective service and one-stop shop for new (and, for some, rather novel) food ingredients.
We even supply sugar in bulk to some of the most prestigious organic vineyards in the UK: it is good to think that not only can you eat 'Naturally Good Food' - you can also drink it!
We have helped enough companies over the years with their food supply problems to have some small expertise in the area; so even if you cannot find the product on our website, do not despair - try an email to us, or better still, ring 02476 541990 - we like to talk!
The range of lines we stock are set out in various categories at the foot of this page. As you can see, our range is extensive and varied. However, not everything we supply is listed, as products come and go. So if you have a need for a particular food ingredient, whether organic, non-organic, gluten-free or conventional, and can't see it on our site, let us know, either by email or by telephone, on 02476 541990.
Bulk buying, or buying in larger quantities, makes good sense, not only for the business user, but also for the private customer. Among the environmental reasons for buying in bulk are:
All the environmental benefits can also benefit your pocket - what is good for the environment can be good for the wallet!
Many years ago we started as a wholefood buying group, using a kitchen table and a set of scales. We've experienced all the pitfalls and fun: someone does not turn up, tins get dented - and everything inbetween. In our group, everyone chose what they wanted from a list, and we collated the orders and sent them off.
We started as the simplest of buying groups, clubbing together with a group of friends and neighbours to buy food from the same supplier. However, we soon learned that there were some fundamental problems with this approach:
At Naturally Good Food we can help overcome some of the problems of running a buying group; we source from most major wholefood wholesalers, so our range is enormous. As we supply lots of retail wholefood customers, we can supply single tins or packets easily. Provided we know in advance, we could set up a buying group for you, in which different people order and the goods are shipped to one location - we are happy to discuss how this could work for your group.
Catering for larger numbers can raise the problem of how to cater for the 10 or 15 people with food intolerances, when you simply want to feed them the same as everyone else, making things easier to administer and preventing friction over perceived 'special treatment'.
At Naturally Good Food we offer a solution for the caterer who needs to provide for those with food intolerances, allowing you to combine your bulk purchase of your main ingredients with just a few lines for those with food intolerances.
The ability to have complete flexibility in how you order, and over the quantities, is a valuable ingredient for those catering for a variety of people.
At Naturally Good Food we are delighted to hold the Soil Association Catering Mark, and fully support the scheme. We want to promote healthy eating throughout the country, in as many places as possible.
