Are you a buyer looking for bulk ingredients?
There are some key ingredients we’d recommend you buy in bulk. There are some ingredients we recommend buying well in advance, especially ingredients whose price tends to fluctuate or dry ingredients with an incredibly long shelf life. In this article we’re going to cover the most popular ingredients to buy in bulk.
Spices are a must-have staple that you want to stock up on. However, not all spices have a long shelf life. So when we buy spices in bulk, we need to buy them wisely. Know which spices your customers need and what spices are in high demand. Salt for instance, you can buy wholesale. It's an item one can have an endless stash of. However, dry herbs, or ground spices, won’t last more than 3 months and should be avoided unless used in high quantities.

Now here comes our favorite topic, baking ingredients. If your customers are running a bakery or cafe they’re going to need a hefty supply of baking ingredients. They will certainly want to buy in bulk - this goes for anyone working in the food industry.
Some of the best ingredients to buy in bulk include:
- Granulated sugar
- vanilla extract
- all-purpose flour
- Chocolate Chips
- Coconut Flakes
You want to avoid buying ingredients like baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, or yeast as they don’t have the longest shelf life and can spoil in storage.
Keeping a well stocked pantry is on most of our customer’s minds. There are certain pantry staples you can keep well stocked for years and others that, well, won’t last as long.
Some pantry essentials to buy in bulk include:
- Canned goods
- Boxed dry items like pasta
- Popcorn kernels
- Coffee beans
Avoid buying ingredients that need to be refrigerated after opening. That’s a decent rule of thumb.
