If you are serious about your business, it is vital to choose wholesale spice grinders carefully. A few months ago, we shared some tips on mistakes to avoid when purchasing bulk spice grinders. Today, we are sharing some more mistakes that you will certainly want to avoid.
Many businesses assume that the best way forward is to find the cheapest, easiest option. Although price is certainly one factor to consider when buying wholesale spice grinders, it is not the only thing that you should be thinking of when making your decision. In this mini guide, we share a few more mistakes to avoid when sourcing grinders in bulk quantities.
Avoid These Mistakes When Choosing Wholesale Spice Grinders Mistakes
Some of the top mistakes to avoid when you browse and compare wholesale spice grinders include the following:
- Choosing opaque bottles rather than clear bottles. One danger in buying the cheapest grinders rather than the best value grinders is that you may end up with murky, discoloured or opaque bottles. While you could easily look for high quality plastic bottles to save money, it is essential that you choose PET plastic. Bottles must be clear and spotless, to reduce the risk of consumer confusion. Be very wary of plastic bottles that are not made according to stringent guidelines, especially if you cannot be sure that the supplier is ISO certified. This could put your customers at risk of the bottles are made from harmful toxins. When in doubt, always choose glass unless you are certain that the plastic is food-grade quality PET. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If no answers are provided, it may be hard to know whether or not you are getting the best quality products.
- Choosing the wrong type of closure. Be wary of suppliers that are only able to provide the most basic of closures. For some types of herbs and spices, you will not require a grinder top. For salt, pepper and many coarse, hard seasoning types, you will need grinder tops. A good grinder supplier will give you a variety of options, with lids that fit various bottle sizes. This is the most effective way to ensure that you are able to package and sell the right lids with the right type of seasoning. Packaging and selling whole peppercorns or coarse salt in a sprinkler type lid will end up increasing your odds of losing your customers. This is something that few businesses can afford to risk.
- Choosing grinders without getting tamper proof liners. Finally, another major mistake is to forget about tamper proof liners when ordering grinder sets. These are vital if you are a certified spice merchant or you plan to be storing herbs, spices or salts on the shelf or in a pantry for any amount of time. Whatever type of spice business you may have – catering, shop, market or something else entirely – freshness is essential when using or selling spices and herbs. Without liners, products will not remain optimally fresh. This has a knock-on effect, putting your customers at risk of poor quality seasoning and putting your business reputation at risk for selling or providing stale seasoning.
