3 Reasons to Try Our Adjustable Push-Pull Spice Grinders

Adjustable spice grinders offer plenty of benefits for consumers, making them a popular option for many spice manufacturers. In the retail sector, these grinders provide customers with a more versatile alternative to traditional grinders. As this market is extremely competitive, having products that are able to meet customer demands is key. Global Grinder’s adjustable push-pull spice grinders give you all the benefits of adjustable grinders, with even more features. Keep reading to find out more about these grinders and their benefits to your brand and customers.

Why Invest in Push-Pull Adjustable Spice Grinders?

Our push-pull grinders bring the best of adjustable grinders, with added benefits. Some of the biggest benefits offered by these spice grinders include the following:

1/ Versatility

Certain dishes require a fine sprinkle of salt, while others may require a coarser grind to season meat or provide more flavour. Like any other adjustable grinder, these grinders allow consumers to adjust the texture of salt or pepper, producing a fine and coarse grind. Unlike the standard model, push-pull grinders make it even easier to switch between fine and coarse grinds. For consumers, being able to use a single grinder to produce both finely and coarsely ground salt, pepper and seasonings is always an advantage. In restaurants and other food environments, these grinders also provide versatility to customers.

2/ Usability

A major advantage of this type of grinder is its ease of use. Standard adjustable grinders are simple to use – these grinders are even simpler. The grinder works by holding the bottle firmly in place then pulling upwards the grinder head and twisting the top. This releases a coarser grind. When the grinder top is pushed back down, it returns to releasing a finer grind. By adding simple instructions on your packaging, consumers will quickly learn how to use the grinder with minimal effort.

3/ Convenience

Finally, another major benefit of this type of grinder is its convenience. The average consumer does not want to waste time or effort looking for different grinders to use when cooking or preparing food. Having a single grinder that can easily grind both fine and coarse seasoning provides a major selling point to consumers. Convenience is important for end-users. It can also act as a competitive advantage, allowing your seasoning to stand out on the shelves due to its usability.

The Biggest Risks of Imported Wholesale Spice Grinders

When running a spice production business, it can be tempting to try and save costs by importing wholesale spice grinders from destinations known for cheap products. Many businesses assume that they can decrease overheads. Although you may save on initial costs, there are a few big challenges involved in importing wholesale spice grinders. The biggest risk is quality. As you already know, quality is essential when purchasing wholesale spice grinders. Sourcing grinders from countries that do not have rigid quality protocols in place means that you are purchasing large orders of poor quality grinders. This can have a knock-on effect on your business, affecting everything from compliance to reputation. There are many other risks to understand.

The Risks of Imported Wholesale Spice Grinders

Some of the biggest risks of imported wholesale spice grinders from countries with minimal regulations include the following:

Production standards

Countries that adhere to regulations and production standards are likely to be ISO certified. This means that they produce products that are compliant with global and national regulations. If you are growing your spice business in South Africa, you are required to meet many requirements to achieve certification. All aspects of your supply chain need to meet these requirements, too. If you source fully certified products locally, you will know that there will be no problems with compliance. Over and beyond regulations, production standards also need to be considered. If you are sourcing from outside of your country, it is difficult to know whether production standards are being met. There may be different standards in place than your home country. This can make it harder to meet compliance guidelines.

Grinder quality

In addition to meeting certification guidelines, you will need to consider the quality of the grinders. This includes the materials they are made from, the overall design, the mechanisms of grinders, the quality of PET plastic, features such as induction liners and tamper-proof liners, and the diversity of grinders and bottles. Another factor to consider is the sizes of bottles. Retail environments may not be the same in every country. If products are designed to fit onto shelves in one destination, they may not fit easily in another destination. Having non-standard bottles can make it more difficult to sell in retail environments.

Quality guarantees

Guarantees are not always possible when importing grinders. What happens if your products arrive, only for you to realise that grinder tops don’t work properly? What will you do if the hinges on flip-top closures break when opened? Instead of PET plastic, you may receive thousands of bottles in poor quality plastic. Glass bottles may not be in the correct sizes. If you’re shipping from countries that are far away, returns and refunds may get complicated. You could end up with products that you cannot use. If you risk using cheap, poor quality grinders that easily break, you are putting your reputation at risk. Sourcing grinders from a trusted local supplier ensures that you will have the option to deal with any potential problems. A leading supplier will prevent this from happening in the first place, as they are fully certified and compliant.

Last but not least, sourcing from local manufacturers is an excellent way to improve your reputation. Locally produced products and packaging allow you to be a truly South African business at all stages of the production chain.

3 Things to Know About Wholesale Spice Grinder Branding

Wholesale spice grinder branding can play a vital role in product positioning. Retail environments are highly competitive. In a busy supermarket, it can take just a few seconds for customers to decide which spice to reach for on the shelf. While factors such as established names will affect this decision, other factors also come into play. Even with well-known manufacturers, brand recognition has a major impact on the spices customers will choose. The quality of products is what will keep customers coming back. The look of your products on the shelf is what gets their attention, however. As a spice manufacturer, it is essential that your product gets noticed quickly and easily. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is to look at ways to improve your branding, such as wholesale spice grinder customisation.

A Guide to Wholesale Spice Grinder Branding

Here are just a few of the benefits that branding and customisation offer.

1/ Branding sets you apart from competitors

When you think about large, household name spice brands, you will very likely think of certain colours along with other elements such as labelling. Colour forms a major aspect of branding. On a shelf full of salt, pepper, herbs and spices, you want your products to stand out. Although you could go with plain colours such as black or clear grinders and flip-top closures, customised ones that suit your brand’s colour palette, style and design will stand out more easily. Customers will be drawn to your product and they will be more likely to pick up that bottle to take a closer look. Failing to stand out from other similar-looking products in the highly competitive retail space can make it harder to meet sales quotas, let alone help you start to build a strong presence.

2/ It creates a unified look for your products

Using our example of well-known spice brands, brand colours also create a more unified look. Customers seldom stop to look at labels when browsing products on the shelf, before making a decision to pick up the product and take a closer look. Many customers start to associate certain colours with certain products. On days when they are tired or busy, they will look at your colours and reach for the bottle knowing that they are getting the product they expect to get. A unified look also helps you create a more polished brand. When your customised grinders are used alongside eye-catching labelling and other brand details, you will be able to create a brand that is recognisable and strong.

3/ Branding helps you build a reputation

On that note, with a recognisable brand comes the chance to build a reputation. As a new or smaller manufacturer, you need to work harder to compete against other, better-known manufacturers. If your products are high-quality and your grinders are modern, customised and eye-catching, you will begin to develop a reputation. Customers will start to look for your products on the shelves. When you back up your customised packaging with excellent quality seasoning and branding campaigns, you will begin to build a legacy. Over time, customers will know and trust your products.

Global Grinders is the leading choice for ISO certified grinders. Our product range includes a selection of contemporary and classic glass and PET plastic bottles along with grinder tops and flip-top sprinklers. Along with other value-added services, we offer customisation to help your spice grinders set you apart.

Introducing the Global Grinders Flare Glass Spice Bottle

With a streamlined, contemporary look, the new Flare glass spice bottle from Global Grinders is ideal for all seasonings. This glass bottle offers a modern alternative to our Original jars and more variety for those choosing bottles made from glass.

The Flare glass spice bottle comes in 100ml. It works well with the modern look of the Eco range spice grinders as well as more distinctive styles such as the Eco Gourmet. Key features include a locking ramp that enables more options for capping, an easy to clean shape, and a reduced height that takes up less room on shelves.

The New Flare Glass Spice Bottle

Here are a few things that make the new Flare glass spice bottle an excellent choice for spice manufacturers, catering businesses, and other industries. This bottle has the following features.

Contemporary

To stand out on shelves, a contemporary design is always important. With that said, bottles still need to be able to fit onto shelves without taking up too much space. The Flare bottle has a modern design with a subtle flare near its base. It will not take up excess space on shelves – in fact, a slightly reduced height makes it fit easily onto shelves. This gives you the benefit of a modern design that stands out, while still being practical for retail displays.

Streamlined

This bottle has a sleek, streamlined look and shape. It has a base diameter of 44.4mm and a height of 109.5mm. When paired with the Elegant or Inline grinders, the overall grinder has a subtle curve that adds elegance to its design. For catering industries such as restaurants and other industries such as corporate gifting, boutique seasoning companies, and other companies, the sleek look adds a touch of sophistication.

Versatile

This bottle is also very versatile. It can be used with many of our grinder tops, including the Eco Gourmet Dial Adjustable, EcoSmart, Elegant and Inline. It also works well with all of our flip top closures, including the Mushroom and New Version. When used alongside custom coloured grinders or closures, labeling and branding offer even more versatility. The bottle is easy to clean and made of sustainable glass that can be reused or recycled.

Wholesale Spice Grinders and Supply Chain Transparency

There is a vital need for supply chain transparency when it comes to choosing wholesale spice grinders. Just like all commercial food packaging, spice bottles and grinders are subject to many stringent quality guidelines. If you are supplying large quantities of seasoning to consumers, you need to ensure that these guidelines are met at every stage of the supply chain.

Wholesale spice grinder manufacturing plays a key role in this supply chain. Even the slightest risk of contamination lapsed quality checks, poor line inspection or any other issues can have a major impact on your business. This is true not only in terms of the final product you supply to consumers but also your company’s reputation, quality conformance certification and overall profit margins.

A key challenge in this industry is the lure of low cost manufacturers that do not provide any type of quality assurance. Companies who focus purely on cost without considering factors such as quality, conformance and essential services such as UV traceability codes put their entire supply chain at risk. In the event that products are contaminated or they do not stay fresh on the shelves, it becomes difficult to determine where things went wrong. It could be an issue with packing. It could be a problem developed during storage. Or it could be a result of poor quality grinders that have not undergone the right checks and inspections.

Wholesale Spice Grinders and Supply Chain Integrity

To get products from the initial packaging manufacturing to the shelves, there are many different steps involved. Supply chain integrity is dependent on transparency at every step of the way. You need to know exactly what is happening, from the moment your packaging is ready for delivery. Choosing cheap, poor quality suppliers that are not certified means that there is very little chance you can expect to ensure that transparency. This means that you will never be able to provide your customers with an assurance that they are getting a quality product.

One of the most effective ways to ensure full integrity from the start of your supply chain is to choose a supplier that offers value added services. UV traceability codes are especially important to ensure conformance and accountability. This technology means that grinders are individually UV marked as proof of complete camera line inspection. In many cases, these codes are required by companies to meet certification guidelines.

On camera line inspections, the codes are used to quickly and easily locate individual grinders, tracing back in origin and forward in the destination. In the event of food safety problems or product recalls, it ensures that products can be identified. They can also help to prevent counterfeiting, as every code is unique and not seen with a naked eye. Used along with other measures such as tamper-proof liners, the codes can add an extra barrier of protection against the risk of product tampering.

At Global Grinders, our goal is to provide businesses with the best range of products and value added services. Contact us today to find out how our wholesale spice grinders help you ensure accountability at every stage of the supply chain.

Choosing a Wholesale Spice Grinder Partner in 2022

If you are looking for a wholesale spice grinder partner in the new year, there are a few criteria that will need to be considered. COVID-19 has had a massive impact all over the world. This includes the economy as a whole. But it has also shone a spotlight on the importance of stringent health and safety measures. For the food industry, this has never been as essential. Food packaging plays an integral role within health and safety, ensuring a supply chain that is protected against pathogens, tampering and other concerns. In today’s times, businesses can no longer afford to put these concerns second to factors such as pricing.

With this in mind, choosing a wholesale spice grinder supplier comes down to far more than price. Quality is an equally, if not more important criteria. This should be reflected across every aspect of the product packaging, from health and safety all the way to value-added services. Choosing the right partner this year will have a knock-on effect on the quality of your products. It will also affect your reputation, customer satisfaction and overall profit margin.

Choosing the Right Wholesale Spice Grinder Supplier

You may be at a point where you are no longer happy with the products or services offered by your current supplier. You may be starting a new business selling specialised spices. You may be in a position to scale your current business, with a need for larger volume grinders, closures and bottles. Whatever the case, here are some things to reflect on when choosing the right wholesale spice grinder supplier in 2022.

Quality assurance

It is no longer enough for suppliers to claim that their products are of high quality. Unless this can be backed up by certification and other quality assurance, these claims are meaningless. Be extremely wary of choosing non-certified suppliers. Certification involves an extremely stringent process, with every single aspect of production carefully evaluated by independent authorities. Compliance is subject to strict regulations, with re-certification, audits and other measures in place to ensure that suppliers continue to meet the standards set forth by quality guidelines.

Health and safety

In industries such as food packaging, FSSC 22000 is the certification Scheme for Food Safety Management Systems based on existing standards for certification in the consumer goods industry. As a global Scheme, it serves as a guideline for all food safety measures used by certified suppliers. In addition to certification, other criteria that signify that your potential supplier is committed to health and safety includes sanitisation efforts. At Global Grinders, our High Tech Ozone Chamber is used to sanitise all products before dispatching, ensuring peace of mind for you and your customers.

Value-added services

Along with these essential criteria, it is also useful to partner with suppliers who provide more than basic products. Value-added services can vary according to your needs. For example, Global Grinders offers customisation of grinder top and closure colours to work with your brand. We also offer services such as tamper-proof liners, pressure-sensitive foam liners, induction liners and UV marked traceability codes.

Over many years of service, Global Grinders has delivered outstanding quality to businesses across South Africa, the United States and Europe. We are proud to be the leading supplier of wholesale spice grinders, ensuring the perfect grinder, every time.

Why Price Isn’t the Only Factor When Choosing Wholesale Spice Grinders

When buying wholesale spice grinders, there is a common conception that price is the most important factor. Whether you are a major seasoning manufacturer placing large orders or a smaller catering company that requires mid-sized orders of multiple grinder sizes, price is just one factor. The problem with choosing suppliers based purely on price is that lower prices can often mean lower quality. You may find a supplier that offers the cheapest grinders on the market. You may decide to import from China or other destinations that supply extremely low cost products in bulk. Although you may save on the order itself, you could end up losing on overall profit if the grinders are of poor quality.

What should you be considering when choosing wholesale spice grinders, then?

The Smart Way to Choose Wholesale Spice Grinders

Price doesn’t have to be taken out of the equation completely, of course. It makes little sense to spend a fortune on your packaging unless your final products have a high market value. Ideally, you should be considering all of the following factors when making your decision.

Quality

The first and most important factor should always be quality. Whatever your industry, you do not ever want to compromise the quality of your final product. If your seasonings are packaged and sold in poor quality bottles, with grinders that don’t work properly or flip-top sprinklers that easily break off or fall apart, you will have a problem. Your customers associate your packaging and your product with your business. To customers, there is no difference between the seasoned salt you sell and the grinder it is sold in – it becomes a single product. When the grinder is of poor quality, customers will see your entire product as poor quality. You then stand the risk of developing a poor reputation, losing sales and profit.

Price

Once you have determined that you are getting a good quality grinder, you can then take price into consideration. There are a few things to note about price. This will ultimately be determined by various factors. The size of the grinders is one factor. Then there is the material of the bottle – glass or PET plastic. The type of grinder top is another factor. If value-added services are included, such as custom colours, tamper-proof liners, induction liners or UV traceability, that will also affect the price. A supplier that offers a wide selection of grinders, bottles, flip-top lids and services will provide high value. That means that you will get a higher return on investment. Prices should be competitive. However, if you purchase grinders that keep your seasonings fresher and allow you to brand your product, you will get maximum value.

At Global Grinders, our goal is to bring you premium quality grinders at competitive prices. Our products are fully certified, meeting stringent quality guidelines. We are the trusted supplier of premium grinders across the globe. Contact us today to learn more about our wide range of wholesale spice grinders.

What to Know About Wholesale Spice Grinder Customisation

At Global Grinders, we offer a wide range of value-added services, including wholesale spice grinder customisation. Whether you are looking for grinders and flip-top closures in your brand colours or grinder bottles in unique shapes, customisation can be a way to make your product stand out. There are a few things to note about customisation, however. In this guide, we share some tips on what you need to know when considering customised wholesale spice grinders.

Understanding Wholesale Spice Grinder Customisation

Here are a few things to know about wholesale spice grinder customisation.

What parts are customised?

There are a few parts that can be customised. Most commonly, the grinder or lid is customised. A wide range of custom colours can be chosen. From a brand point of view, this helps you choose grinders in your company colours. You can also select specific colours for different seasoning ranges. For example, you may use red tops for seasoned salt, blue tops for special herb blends and brown tops for pepper blends. You may choose a variety of colours within your brand colours. For example, if your primary brand colour is green, you may use different shades of green for different blends. You may choose solid colours or tinted transparent grinder tops. Bottle sizes and shapes can also be customised. You might have a specific design that suits your brand look. You may require larger or smaller bottles to suit your needs. Along with customised tops, this ensures that your grinders are fully tailored to suit your brand look.

Is customisation right for every company?

With that said, customisation isn’t always the right choice. This will depend on the company and the industry. A large spice company selling in a traditional retail environment may find that customised lids help products stand out. Uniquely shaped bottles will not always be easily kept on shelves. If bottles are too wide or too big, they may not be placed near other standard bottles. You may find that a smaller boutique retail environment is more suitable. But it may not be worth taking a chance, only to find your products being stored somewhere in a corner because they do not easily fit onto shelves. On the other hand, in a catering or corporate gifting company, unique bottle shapes will stand out. There are no limitations such as shelving. Ultimately, the decision will be made using careful market research to determine the best shape for your specific needs. The goal is to make your product stand out. If that comes at the price of not being easily displayed in supermarkets, you will miss out on that goal.

What are the benefits of customisation?

There are a few benefits of customisation. The biggest one is, of course, the chance to stand out. Branding plays a vital role in packaging. For products such as salt, pepper and seasoning, you want your packaging to be as attractive as the contents. You put in a lot of effort and time to create labels that showcase your product to perfection. It makes sense to do the same with grinders. When you have beautifully designed labels and colourful lids in your brand colours, your product stands out from competitors. It also creates a more cohesive experience, especially when your product has the same look as your website, brochures and marketing material.

What is Wholesale Spice Grinder Quality Conformance?

When finding a wholesale spice grinder supplier, quality conformance should always be top of mind. Almost every business involved in the preparation and sale of food products needs to adhere to quality guidelines. For larger seasoning producers, products need to go through a strict quality protocol to maintain ISO certification. Certification applies not only to the products themselves but also to the packaging. This means that the grinders you purchase need to be fully compliant with relevant ISO quality guidelines. If you choose a supplier that does not meet these guidelines, your product cannot be certified.

Quality conformance applies to measures taken to ensure that all third-party supplier packaging, parts and products meet ISO guidelines. In the case of wholesale spice grinder manufacturers, it means partnering with a supplier that is committed to ensuring full transparency and assurance at every stage of the production process.

There are a few specific measures that will help you ensure quality conformance when choosing a trusted supplier. In this article, we share some of the important features that comprise conformance to global quality recommendations.

Wholesale Spice Grinder Quality Conformance

Conformance is essential across all parts of the supply chain. If your suppliers are not certified, you will struggle to achieve certification as a seasoning manufacturer. Some of the most important things to look for when choosing a wholesale spice grinder supplier include the following:

Traceability

Grinders should be individually UV marked. This provides proof of complete camera line inspection for full traceability and quality conformance. The advantages of this are two-fold. On the manufacturing side, it ensures that all empty bottles have been fully checked at each stage of the production process. This means that there has been a comprehensive assessment right up to the point that the grinders and bottles are sent through to your facility. Once they arrive on your side, you are then able to use the UV codes to keep track of progress during the filling and distribution stage. This ensures full traceability throughout every stage, with minimal room for error.

Tamper-proof lining

Tamper-proof liners are created to remove the risk of contamination. They also ensure product freshness. The lining includes pressure-sensitive foam lining as well as induction liners. Foam lining has polystyrene foam on one side, with an adhesive layer on the other side. The liner is bonded to the bottle using pressure that secures the liner to the container. The closure is removed, leaving the liner on the top. Liners for grinders and flip-tops can be applied manually. Induction liners are officially recognised as tamper-proof by the FDA. These liners contain board backing, foil and a heat-sealable film. They are passed through an induction machine, which causes the liner to bond with the glass or plastic bottle. A hermetic seal is created. The liner is then removed by end-users.

Certification

Certification is another essential thing to consider when choosing a supplier. When manufacturers are fully certified, they are compliant with local and global quality guidelines. They are required to have their own stringent processes to maintain certification and pass audits. This means that you will have the benefit of partnering with a supplier who is fully compliant at all times.

As a trusted supplier providing premium products within South Africa and abroad, Global Grinders is committed to quality. Contact us today to find out more about how we ensure full quality conformance at every stage of production.

Do Wholesale Spice Grinders Need Foam Liners?

As an effective anti-tampering measure that seals in freshness, foam liners are essential for wholesale spice grinders. These liners are made from polystyrene foam, with an adhesive layer on one side that bonds to the container. Pressure is used to secure the grinder or sprinkler closure onto the bottle. Once the lid or grinder is removed by the end-user, the liner stays in place until the seasoning is opened. Both grinders and flip-top closures can be manually capped without the need for machines, making this a cost-effective way to keep spices and herbs fresh and avoid contamination. Keep reading to find out why foam liners are a good choice for wholesale spice grinders.

Pressure Sensitive Foam Liners for Wholesale Spice Grinder

Some of the biggest benefits offered by pressure-sensitive foam liners include the following:

Protects the contents in wholesale spice grinders.

In a busy production and packing facility, it is essential to have visual authentication of contents integrity. Foam liners make it easier to keep track of items that have been packed, prepared and sealed. This means it is easier to get products packaged and shipped with full peace of mind knowing that every bottle is safely sealed.

Seals in freshness.

Spices and herbs have a limited shelf life. Once the cap has been removed, there is a far greater risk of contents losing their freshness. Even if your spices and herbs are sealed in plastic after packaging, liners still add an extra barrier against moisture, providing a tight inner seal on the lid as well as the bottle.

Reduces the risk of contamination.

This is especially important during times like the current pandemic. Food safety is now more of a priority than ever. Sealed bottles will protect against any risk of airborne diseases. They will also help to prevent the spread of foodborne pathogens. This gives your end-users peace of mind knowing that products are always kept sealed and safe as soon as bottles are filled and packaged.

Cost and time efficiency.

As we mentioned above, these liners are a cost-effective solution. They do not require facilities or special equipment. They can be purchased in bulk and added manually. They work on both glass and plastic bottles, making them ideal for all of our spice bottles supplied by Global Grinders. They are an ideal choice if you are seeking a simple tamper-proof lining that is efficient yet inexpensive.

Global Grinders offers tamper-proof linings as a value-added service, including pressure-sensitive foam liners. Contact us today for all of your wholesale spice grinder needs and we will help you find the best solution for your budget.
