Wholesale dairy products are sold to countless distributors and manufacturers all over the United States. Many of these retail distributors include major supermarkets, grocery stores, and mini-marts or gas stations. Some of these dairy food products include yogurt, milk, ice cream, cottage cheese, as well as half and half or cream. Typically dealers will purchase these products in large packages or bulk loads in order to get them at a discounted rate. As you may know, many dairy products generally contain lactose, and are pasteurized. Lactose is a sugar that is found in milk, and pasteurization is a heat treatment process that involves partial sterilization.
There are a wide variety of wholesale dairy products available for purchase. These range from goat cheese, to fresh cream, to reduced fat powdered milk, to various ice creams. There are also soy and rice products for those who are lactose intolerant. Wholesale manufacturers use cows to produce thousands of gallons of milk regularly. There are even diet dairy products, such as skim milk and low-fat yogurt for sale. Some milk brands offer lactose free versions of their products as well. One of the key nutrients found in dairy foods is calcium, which is required for bone density and strength. Since these products do not have a long shelf life, they must be distributed to supermarkets and grocery stores regularly.
You can speak with a professional at your local grocery store or food market in order to learn more about fresh milk, raw dairy products, and the different packages these food items are sold in.
Wholesale dairy products, such as milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream can be an excellent way to save money on products you always use. Buying from a dealer in bulk can mean that they will ship the items directly to your home or store. Shop around and see which companies offer the products you need, including homogenized, pasteurized, and condensed products. Buying directly from a broker can be a great way to save money on whole, lactose-free, or skim milk, butter, curds, and cheese. The retail price of many products can cost a lot more than if you were to buy directly from a creamery or farm. If you bake a lot and need a lot of dairy products you will find that buying from a creamery or farm will save you a lot of money compared to when you buy from a retail store. Search the internet or look in a phone book to find a store that sells wholesale products. See if they offer tours of the facility so you can get an idea on the condition of the cows or how clean the facility is. Compare prices to find out which company will give you the best bulk price. Some may offer free shipping to your home or store while others will charge a delivery fee if you can't pick it up on your own. Look for reviews on different brands to see who people prefer to buy from or who they think has better tasting products.
