Whether you are starting a new venture or expanding your current product line, now is the best time to invest in quality wholesale spice grinders. Choosing a supplier can be daunting, especially if you are not fully sure of what to look for when making your final shortlist. Rather than leaving any decisions to chance, consider the following tips on how to find the best quality wholesale spice grinders in 2018.
How to Find the Best Wholesale Spice Grinders in 2018
Some guidelines to consider when choosing a wholesale spice grinders supplier this year include the following:
Look for ISO certified suppliers.
ISO certified suppliers are the only suppliers that can offer complete peace of mind. Due to the rigid nature of ISO standardisation, along with the required quality testing involved in standardisation, the result is a very high quality grinder that will not have any trouble meeting basic standards. The biggest risk to choosing the cheapest rather than the best quality grinders you can find is that your business image can end up paying the price if the bottles or grinder tops break, fail to grind evenly, do not have liners, do not last, or do not meet basic quality guidelines. Very few businesses can afford to put their reputation at risk.
Look for tamper-proof liners and other added security features.
Induction liners and other liners are essential if you are buying grinders in bulk to sell bottled spices or herbs. There are a number of different liners, including tamper-proof liners, induction liners and pressure sensitive foam liners. Whichever you choose, liners help to retain freshness on the shelf. When they are not used, there is a far higher risk of exposure to moisture, air, and other contamination. This, once again, could end up doing great harm to your reputation if you are selling spices at markets or retail outlets this year. Another essential feature to consider is Likewise, traceability codes, which provide a clear chain of evidence that follows international compliance standards.
Look for suppliers that offer a wide range of grinder and sprinkler tops.
If your potential supplier only stocks grinder tops in a single size, without a selection of sprinkler tops, you may find yourself limited to the products you can sell. If your business is largely course salt or whole spices, this will not be too much of an issue. If, however, you aim to sell a range of herbs and spices, then it is always a good idea to invest in a selection of flip top lids and sprinklers to suit your product requirements. If you are selling bottles in various sizes, it is also essential to ensure that you have corresponding tops that are made for each bottle size.
Look for high quality PET plastic or glass bottles.
Glass bottles are generally the ideal choice, as they can be recycled easily by your end consumer. Glass also adds more value to your product, which is never a bad thing. If you do decide to choose plastic, look for PET plastic that is made to a far higher quality compared to regular plastic. This type of plastic is also recyclable, and it is also designed to be safe to use for food products such as fresh herbs and spices. Regular plastic may seem cheaper initially. It can compromise the quality of your product, however, especially after any time spent on the shelf.
