I have a variety of ingredients that I need for R&D, product feedback and test marketing. All of the suppliers that I've found require large minimums (ie. 55 gal or 20 L) for most ingredients. They usually will supply samples that are large enough for R&D, but not for product feedback and test marketing.
I'd have to spend thousands on ingredients, much of which will be wasted. Is there a list of wholesalers that cater to smaller companies? If you know of any wholesalers, please let me know.
