A webshop is an ideal way to sell your organic products. To start a webshop, you buy your products from a wholesaler. A wholesaler is an organization where you can buy goods and services in bulk as a company. As a consumer, you are usually not able to buy at a wholesaler. The big advantage of buying from a wholesaler is that the prices are a lot more attractive, because the wholesale price is much lower than the prices in the store.
If you are an environmentally conscious entrepreneur, it is good to look at organic wholesalers. By purchasing from an organic wholesaler, you help to increase the number of organic farmers and producers. Here you will find, among other things, organic plant protein powder, desiccated coconut and products that are packaged in a more environmentally friendly way. For example, a lot less plastic is used which in turn contributes to a circular economy. Compostable foil and recyclable packaging are often used.
