Want to stock a Beechworth Honey product in your café, store or retail outlet? Here’s what you need to know for us to be able to help you with your inquiry.
We’re excited that you love our products enough to want to share them with your customers. As you will appreciate we receive many inquiries for our products. We have been successfully selling our products for more than 20 years to various market channels and have invested considerable time and energy in developing sales and marketing strategies targeted to different markets. We have always been very choosy about finding just the right customers to stock our products and we don’t apologise for this. We also value our existing customers and markets. If we don’t think a market or an opportunity will be a win-win for us and you then we won’t be able to progress your inquiry further.
We choose our trading partners and new market opportunities based on assessing the following information:
1. The opportunity as presented by the store and it’s location and which products you are interested in.
- You need to explain your store and market channel. The more detail the better. We need to understand what volume of product you would aim to sell and where and how you will sell it.
- You also need to tell us which products you are interested in. Honey? Drinks? Beauty? And what pack sizes- also why you feel these will work in your chosen market.
2. What you or your store is all about.
- You need to tell us about yourself. We don’t do business with people we don’t know really well and who we feel confident with in selling our products.
- Let us know your website as a beginning, or send a company profile or brochure.
c) We also try not to introduce new customers who will impact on our existing ones so your location is important.
With the number of inquiries we receive there are some customers who we choose not to develop markets with. They are:
- Individuals not incorporated as a company
- Those interested in only buying job lots of product or selling online, via e-bay or at farmers or other markets, and those wanting the lowest cost in the market
- Those interested in buying product to re-export through friends and family4. Those interested in selling products under their own private label brands

- Those who have not successfully launched food products before or who are not genuine food retailers with an ABN.
