FAQ

What is Bulk Food?

Bulk foods are products that are bought in large quantities and then transferred into smaller packages designated for individual purchase. They are packaged in clear plastic containers and baggies with the product inside distinctly visible. In other words, “the package doesn’t lie” – what you see is what you get. 

Because bulk food manufacturers don’t invest heavily in their packaging or marketing campaigns, their products can often be passed on to the customer at a significant value.
