Wholesalers for large quantities?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Are there any companies that wholesale meat?

Sometimes I do large quantities, and I don't like to pay retail at the grocery store...

 

I am not in the catering business, but sometimes sell a few things off the smoker.

 

Ideas or suggestions?

I'm in Atlanta, GA area if that matters...

Many restaurant suppliers, Sysco, US foods, have walk-in stores where they sell to regular customer's, folks like you that purchase " as needed ". They may have a small markup over true wholesale, it is still better than grocery stores. Also, find a Butcher that slaughters on sight or purchases whole beef and hogs and sells to area restaurants. They too will often accept you as a low volume caterer and sell at a wholesale price. They may require minimum weight to get the good price but again, still cheaper...JJ

Look in the phone book for meat wholesale. Some will require a tax ID and some won't

Happy smoken.
