Bulk organic products

Buy in bulk.

“Foods like grains, pasta, flour, dry beans, nuts, and seeds from bulk bins are significantly less expensive because they don’t require costly packaging and labeling,” says Margaret Wittenberg, global vice president of quality standards for Whole Foods Market in Austin, Texas. Economies of scale also apply to packaged foods. Compare:
• 28 ounce can Muir Glen organic whole peeled tomatoes: $0.10 cents/ounce
• 14.5 ounce can Muir Glen organic whole peeled tomatoes: $0.14 cents/ounce
• Whole Foods bulk bin organic white basmati rice: $4.38/2 pounds
• Lundberg organic California white basmati rice: $4.99/2 pounds
