Love Money recommends Naturally Good Food :

'Genuine savings to be made with bulk buying. For those that are after natural foods, Naturally Good Food has a wholefoods bulk buying section for lentils and pulses, as well as nuts and dried fruit.'

You can save money, and still eat healthily, with our larger packs of organic wholefoods. Buying in bulk can give significant savings if you use a lot of a particular item. For example, buying a 10 kg box of ground almonds represents a major saving over buying lots of smaller packets.

We have 1 kg sizes of many organic dried fruits such as apricots and dates, giving you a great saving over the smaller packs found in supermarkets. Our fast turnover ensures freshness and fantastic taste - particularly noticeable with our organic nuts. Our Brazils and cashews come to us vacuum-packed and are wonderfully crisp. Porridge and jumbo oats are available in 5 kg bags, and our organic basmati rice in 3 kg bags - both excellent value and with the additional advantage of playing your part in reducing packaging.

If you need even bigger packs, or cannot find what you want, just ring us for a price on 02476 541990

Don't forget, you can order by the case for our standard 10% case discount.

Artisan producers, pubs and coffee houses (and even vineyards)

For food producers who work on a small scale, it can sometimes be difficult to:

  • Find a supplier for a vital ingredient, especially one that is considered slightly unusual - and where it is the unusual that makes the difference.
  • Find an ingredient that you use reasonably regularly, at a reasonable price: the ingredient may be in the supermarket, but there you are paying a full retail price. What you need is a trade supplier of niche foods that can be delivered to your door.
  • Easily obtain a variety of good quality foods with which to experiment. If, for example, you are developing a new recipe, you will need a delivery of all the new ingredients you require, but may not have time to source a whole new set of items. Really, you would like a single delivery of all the new ingredients, so that you do not have to source from six or seven new suppliers and set up trade accounts with all of them (with all the associated paperwork)!

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 a 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!

Bulk food lines supplied, including bulk herbs and spices

The 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.

 Herbs and spices

You may be interested in the bulk herbs and spices we stock in 1 kg bags. These are always a good buy - and if you are anything like our family, then you will be always running out of black peppercorns!

Buying bulk environmental products

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:

  • a significant reduction in packaging: one 10 kg bag of apricots may use less than 5% of the packaging as the same amount in 250g bags.
  • reductions in the environmental effects of delivery: it takes no more fuel to deliver a 30 kg box than it does to deliver a 1 kg box, so buying in bulk can save multiple deliveries and all the consequential environmental impacts.
  • if you buy in bulk, and then cook in bulk, you can save significantly on your fuel bills. If you pop a few meals in the freezer, you can have a meal ready when you need it.
  • All the environmental benefits can also benefit your pocket - what is good for the environment can be good for the wallet!

Supplying buying groups

Many years ago we started as a wholefood buying group, using a kitchen table and a set of scales. We've experienced all the pit-falls 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.

A guide to setting up such a group can be found here: A guide to running a buying group.

A solution to some buying group problems

 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:

  • no one supplier had the complete range all the group wanted.
  • we could only buy in cases, so if the combined group did not want a case, then ordering was impossible, as the supplier only supplied in cases.
  • the order collation took ages, and getting everyone's money often proved to be a problem - the greenest of people also seemed to be some of the most disorganised!
  • buying groups seem to need to remain small to be manageable.

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.

 Cooking for institutions

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 especially valuable for those catering for a variety of people.

Buy in bulk sizes for maximum savings

It is important to eat well - but in these difficult economic times, it can be hard to stretch the family budget. One option is to buy some things in bulk and save money. Naturally Good Food started as a bulk-buying group, so we know the savings that can be made by buying large quantities. With our larger pack sizes, and standard 10% case discount, you can always be sure of a good deal.

We sell organic and non-organic wholefoods, and other natural products and foods, in bulk quantities. Most are available in 25 kg quantities or are bagged down to 10 kg, 5 kg, 3 kg and 1 kg packs. We have our own Soil Association Organic Producers' licence and so are certified to pack our own organically sourced lines in a large variety of sizes.

See our Blogs on bulk purchase for some hints and tips.

Small business users

As we run a small food business ourselves, we understand the challenges involved: perhaps your normal wholesaler is out of stock, or does not carry a line you desperately need. At Naturally Good Food, we can fill this gap, providing that vital missing ingredient, be it a large bottle of vanilla extract or a sack of gluten-free flour.

Many small companies have a need for a regular supply of an individual product. If this is the case, then we are very happy to quote. Just let us know your requirements by telephone (02476 541990) or via email from our contact us form.

 Saving money 

You can save money, and still eat healthily, with our larger packs of organic wholefoods. Buying in bulk can offer significant savings, especially if you use a lot of a particular item: for example, buying a 10 kg box of ground almonds is a major saving compared with buying lots of smaller packets.

We have 1 kg packs of organic dried fruits, such as apricots and dates, giving you a great saving over the smaller pack sizes found in supermarkets. Our fast turnover ensures freshness and fantastic taste - particularly noticeable with organic nuts. Our Brazils and cashews come to us vacuum-packed and are wonderfully crisp.

As well as saving money, you can have the satisfaction of reducing packaging by buying in bulk. Porridge and jumbo oats are available in 5 kg bags, while our organic basmati rice in 3 kg bags is excellent value.

If you need even bigger packs, or you can't find what you want, just ring us for a price on 02476 541990.

Don't forget - you can order by the case for our standard 10% case discount.

Artisan producers/pubs and cafes

We are large enough to source and deliver what small-scale producers want - but also small enough ourselves to understand your needs. We can source larger tubs of certain products that might come in useful, for example:

  • 2 kg tubs of peanut butter - in all sorts of variations: organic, non-organic, crunchy and smooth.
  • Large tubs of mayonnaise.
  • Agave syrup in 25 litre tubs.
  • Wild rice - see the wild rice price comparison: buying a 22 kg sack can save you over 50% of the cost of buying in 500g bags.

Agave syrup savings - half price

If you can buy a large tub of a product, then savings are considerable. For example, a 25 litre tub of agave syrup is about half the price of the same quantity in 250ml jars (see agave price comparison). These sorts of savings are common across a range of wholefoods. To see what we can do for you, let us know your requirements using our contact us page.

Sugar in 25 kg sacks

Sugar has for generations been used as a preservative, and is therefore one of the best products to buy in a large sack. Our 25 kg sacks of sugar offer outstanding value for money. You can almost guarantee they will not go out of date in your cupboard! They are also really good value for the small artisan baker or food producer. At Naturally Good Food, we offer a great range of sugars designed for baking, food production and for home use.

For more detail, see our Blog on large sacks of sugar.
