    After having worked many years in the fashion industry, I would like to now get engaged in supplying organic products to the UK market. Our main product areas are organic virgin coconut oil and organic tea. We are currently working with BRC certified fair trade factories in Sri Lanka. As we are not yet a retail brand, we are looking to supply in bulk. It would be very much appreciated if any of you can give some ideas as to where to find bulk buyers for such products in the UK. All comments are welcome.

    Don't know about the oil so much. Companies that use the oil in products will already have suppliers so you will be competing

    Thank you for all the comments, I am still looking for any organic tea bulk buyers. May be you already have some established contacts. But it would be really great if you can share the process. Thank you in advance.

    Try Suma Wholefoods and other natural/whole food wholesalers. Infinity Foods, Health Store, Community Foods, etc
    It is a growing market with many brands already available.
