    By "alternatives" I was speaking to packaging of MLPS. For instance,
    one guy who ordered recently was planning on using it the same way as
    you. He ordered a case of twelve and told me that he was going to
    repackage it. So I suggested to him that instead of giving him twelve
    4.4 oz boxes, I could give him the aggregate amount in three larger
    bags, saving money on the box, and labor for nine bag fills. He liked
    that idea, and I passed the savings on to him. He made my life easier,
    so I returned the favor, and everybody won. If, in the future, you
    order an entire case, I'll be more than happy to do the same. I'm all
    about customer service, and if a special need is present, I'm more
    than willing to help. Keep that in mind for the future.

    No deal if we bought say 10+ cases?
    As I mentioned, not really interested in larger containers, just a deal if we buy a bunch.
    I'm sure we could sell 10 cases, I'd take at least one.

    I did not ask for a deal, my main concern was self life. I am sure if i asked we could work a deal with him for volume. I don't want to run a group buy, but i am willing ask about volume purchase and discount on such volume and see what the answer is

    another concern was taste, I am half sicilian 1st generation on my mother side, I know good sauce when i taste it. I wanted to try a packet and see how it tasted ( my taste would be much different from others) before I ordered more

    we also can plum tomatoes cooked and processed into sauce its a family thing every year we do approx 350 mason jars so my interest in this is longterm self life

    I will send off a price request and if its not a bargin or worth it then its ok with me

    I didn't notice that until you mentioned it, doh, they're 40 miles or less from me.




    I'd like to try it first too before I'd deside on a large purchase.
    I sent them an email to see if it's sold in any of the local stores, if it is I'll try to get some for this weekend.

    Sprat,

    Thank you for the contact info. I have sent him an email asking for some quotes. If he is willing to cut us a decent deal, I will post a feeler thread for a GB. I also asked him about getting a couple of samples. I'll let you all know what I hear.

    I heard back from him. here's the deal.

    "Price breaks start at 7%, and that kicks in at 15 cases. (12 units per case) After 30 cases, I can take off 12%. 50 cases and above, 15%. Each person would of course be responsible for the shipping on top of that price, but the shipping will be handled on a person to person basis. I do not mark up shipping. What it costs me, it costs the customer, and I have a pretty good UPS discount available to me, so a good shipping price is guaranteed"

    We should be able to move at least 30 cases. That will give us a 12% discount.
    I'll take at least one of each if it's any good. He is sending me one pkg of each to try. I'll keep you guys up to speed.

    I just placed an order on the site so I can try it, I asked about local stores but he's only doing mail order (at least that's what he said in the reply). I replied back saying I was hoping to find it locally to try it this weekend before placing an order for a case, but never got a reply, was hoping he'd offer me a sample.

    So if I like it I'll be in for one or two cases, hopefully you guys don't get in a rush to do the order.
