Buy wholesale from a long-standing & ethical worker co-operative
We offer one of the largest ranges of organic, ethical and sustainable products with nearly 5,000 items from numerous brands. Some are household names but many smaller producers are unique to us. Not forgetting our own brand of ethical store cupboard staples and huge retail pack range created right here on-site!
We have a bespoke online ordering system with custom functionalities adaptable to your needs. Placing your order online gives you flexibility, access to the latest prices and promotions, and as orders are available to view, you can save time in re-ordering.
We offer next working day delivery as standard! Simply place your order before 11am the day before. However, place your order two working days in advance and you will qualify for our Priority Service - allowing us to let you know about any out of stock items and offer substitutions. We make weekly delivery runs across the UK (daily here in Bristol). Customers are given a regular delivery day based on their location.
Our dedicated customer services team are available throughout the day via phone or e-mail to take your order and answer any queries you might have. They have extensive product knowledge and are happy to give advice on best selling products, new lines and product availability.
The vast majority of orders are fulfilled using our own dedicated fleet of Essential vehicles and drivers. This allows us to be more flexible and responsive than if we used external haulage/courier services and means we can get to most places with the appropriate vehicle. All of our drivers are members of Essential Trading Co-operative.
Or if you're local to us you can always use our collection service from our warehouse.
