National Bulk Foods Week 2016


  Dear Valued Retailer, 

Woman shopping from a New Leaf Gravity Food binWe're excited to invite you to help us in celebrating National Bulk Foods Week, October 16-22, 2016. The Bulk is Green Council (BIG), is calling on respected food retailers to take part in a fun and free promotional opportunity.

Founded in 2008, BIG is a research and advocacy organization dedicated to increasing consumer, retailer and grocer awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of buying natural and organic food in the bulk aisle of the grocery store.

In addition, look for October discounts on bulk items from your distributor or direct from BIG council members.

In a tough economy, your customers are paying close attention to what they buy at the grocery store. Shopping in bulk offers consumers the opportunity to save $, reduce food waste and decrease their carbon footprint through reduced packaging. 

What: National Bulk Foods Week
: Sunday, October 16th through Saturday, October 22nd
Where: Your Store! 

In 2015, we had approximately 1,500 natural food and grocery stores participate in this exciting promotion.

Our goal for 2016 is to have 1,750+ stores celebrating the many reasons to "love bulk".  We look forward to hearing back from you and hope you will be one of the many stores participating in the 2016 National Bulk Foods Week promotion.  Promotional materials are available down below.
