Food and Related items – relevant for Tasmania.

When purchasing food always where possible buy bulk in the size pack the products are shipped in. Check the date that the produce was harvested, from where and if it is suitable for human consumption. As an example, legumes and cereals are usually shipped in 20 or 25kg bags.

When buying from wholesale sources be precise and organized with your orders and if possible buy as a local co-operative. This way you may get a better deal and will save on shipping. Always check the freighting costs and arrangements, obtaining a firm quote from the transport company before committing.

Have a place prepared for the foods arrival that is cool, dry and vermin proof. (See )
