Frequently Asked Questions

For Retailers:

 

How do I set up an account?

 

Please fill out the request pricing form on our website. We will typically review your submission within 2-4 hours during the workweek. We only sell to qualified retailers and foodservice businesses in Canada.

 

How do I order?

 

If you've set up a wholesale account with us, we're happy to take your order in any one of the following ways:

 

1. Online (fastest and most accurate)


Simply log in and place your order. You'll be able to see what products are on promotion, their case quantities, and their current pricing. Our website displays images of each product, their attributes, ingredients, and for most products, their nutrition facts.

 

2. Phone


Give us a call and our team will be happy to enter your order manually. We recommend this option when you have questions before listing a new product.

 

3. Email


We can manually enter orders sent to us by email. Including item numbers and line totals is the best way to ensure correct item and quantity entry.

 

4. Fax


You may also fax orders. As with most paper-based processes, expect order turnaround to be the longest compared to other methods. We strongly encourage online ordering or sending your purchase orders by email.

 

How do find out about new products and promotions?

 

We communicate this information in our weekly email newsletters.

If you haven't been receiving them, chances are one of the following events have occurred:


1. Emails have been suppressed because you haven't opened our emails in a while.

 

To start receiving emails again, simply open the last few newsletters you received and click a few links inside.

 

2. Our emails are going to your junk or spam folder.

 

To start receiving emails into your inbox again, click on any newsletter and mark the sender as "safe" and/or "not junk".

 

3. You've previously unsubscribed from our newsletters.

 

To resolve this, you'll need to open any previous newsletter, scroll to the bottom, click "manage preferences" and change your subscription settings.

For Consumers

 

Do you sell to the general public?

 

We are strictly a business-to-business wholesale distributor. We only sell to qualified retailers and foodservice businesses in Canada. We would be happy to direct you to one of our many retail partners near you.

 

Where can I buy your products?

 

Our products are found at hundreds of independent health food stores, grocery stores, and pharmacies across Canada. If you would like to see some of our products available for purchase at your local retailer, please fill out this form and specify the product(s). Our Sales Team will reach out to the store and inform them of your interest.

 

I have a question about one of your products

 

As we're a distributor and not the manufacturer for our products, most product-specific questions should be directed to the manufacturer. If we're listed as the importer for a particular product, please Contact Us and specify the product(s) and questions. Please allow 1-2 business days for a reply.

 

 

For Brand Owners:

 

What fees do you charge for distribution?

 

We do NOT charge listing or associated fees. Cooperative marketing fees to promote your brand and products are optional and never marked up (e.g. if a trade show space costs $1000, you pay $1000). These costs will be discussed in advance - no surprise chargebacks.

 

What types of stores do you service?

 

We service over 500 independent retailers across Canada. Most of our retailers would be best categorized as health food grocery stores. We also service bakeries, diet/weight loss stores, independent grocers, and natural pharmacies/supplement stores.

 

Do you have your own trucks?

 

No. This means that all of our shipments are sent out on-demand via third-party couriers, reducing the average wait time per order.
