Bulk Honey Merchandising    (Posted Wed, Jun 22 '11 at 09:23 UTC)

I?m with a food service equipment manufacturer out of WI and I?m working on a project involving a bulk honey dispenser/warmer. We designed the unit for a grocery store chain?..they put these units in the health food section of their stores. We have about 200 of these installed but they are cancelling the program since they were only dispensing into honey bears and their shoppers would rather buy off the shelf. We?re looking into the possibility of marketing this unit to Natural Food Stores and food co-ops so I am doing some preliminary research to see if there is a need for this product in the market. I was hoping to get input on bulk honey dispensing at these operations. Do you see a rise in bulk honey dispensing at retail locations? What types of retailers are getting into bulk dispensing of honey? How are retailers currently dispensing bulk honey? Are the warmers and dispenser working well? Do you have any insight or recommendations for us?

Thank you for any advice you can give us. I appreciate your time.

My retail grocery customers are asking me to source bulk honey and oilive oil dispensers for their bulk food departments. Please advise if your dispensers are
available with specs & costs.
Many thanks,

Yes I am looking for a heated honey dispenser for our Natural Food store...retail bulk section. I have a 30 year old double boiler style. I would like one like the ones that are one Whole Foods. Stainless steel, simple and efficient. Any suggestion on brand name would be greatly appreciated too!!
