Most suppliers, including FrutPlanet, can help source bulk honey at a lower cost.
But apart from profits, quality is critical. Sourcing high-quality bulk honey that’s valuable to your customers is essential. When you provide better quality, you improve your profit margins.
According to the Harvard Business Review, customers are willing to pay more for less if the quality is better.
In this article, we’ll expound on how sourcing high-quality bulk benefits you as the business owner and the customer. But before we do, contact us if you’re looking for a supplier to partner with. FrutPlanet helps you source quality honey that is worth your money.
#1: Longer Shelf Life
Honey has a long shelf life, which explains why it was used as a natural preservative. The long shelf life and the preservative nature of honey stand to benefit you and your customers. However, not all honey has a long shelf life; it depends on quality.
High-quality honey has less contamination during harvesting. In addition, it is rarely processed as this removes essential protective components. Processing makes honey lighter and exposes it to direct sunlight. UV rays from the sun damage the flavor of the honey, and the resultant heat makes it crystalize faster.
Honey has a long shelf life of over 12 months, but depending on how well you handle it during harvest, it can extend to several years. Some honey is even reported to last over a decade if not contaminated or processed.

#2: Better Prices
Ordering honey in bulk guarantees better honey prices by reducing the cost per unit. Most exporters, including FrutPlanet, offer varying prices per kg for wholesalers and retailers. You can take advantage of this and reduce the cost of honey in the long run.
For example, the price of wholesale honey in Kenya is Ksh. 960 or USD 7.24. However, the average cost for honey per tonne in Mombasa, Kenya, is USD 7863.25. Therefore, if you buy per tonne, you will be saving over USD 600 per tonne. Well, it may not be much but will a little negotiation, you could save more than USD 1000.
Bulk honey suppliers such as FrutPlanet offer negotiable quotations. In addition, they are more accustomed to offers and discounts on certain orders.

Buying high-quality bulk honey assures you that your customers will get the intended value from your products. As a result, you will generate more returning customers and, ultimately, more sales.
High-quality bulk honey is rich in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, the exact value customers hope to get from your product. This will render your product more satisfying than your competitors.
However, you must ensure that you get the right quality honey, which can only be possible through proper sourcing. Proper honey sourcing supports sustainable and ethical beekeeping, which we hold dear here at FrutPlanet Exporters.
