About Bulk Nutrients
The concept behind Bulk Nutrients started around 2004 when Managing Director Ben Crowley lived in Japan for 12 months teaching English. As supplements were so difficult to come by in Japan he bought his personal supply from America and had them shipped to Japan.
Ben was amazed at how affordable supplements were in America as well as the massive range available. After lengthy investigation Ben found that the American market was more competitive and utilised streamlined systems, which was lacking in Australia.
Prices in Australia were excessive due to ‘middlemen’ distributors. No value was added in this process, rather the outdated system of importers, distributors and resellers only served to increase prices to consumers.
Were these middlemen necessary? What if someone produced a range of supplements in Australia, which used our higher quality proteins? Direct from the factory is the simplest supply chain possible. And with no middlemen, it meant customers were in line for big savings.
With that simple notion, Bulk Nutrients was born.
Bulk Nutrients today
Fast forward over 10 years to 2017 and Bulk Nutrients is thriving. We now employ over 45 staff full time staff and process a staggering 75 tonnes of stock a month.
The Bulk Nutrients factory in Tasmania is a site to be seen. It totals over 2500m², with 5 manufacturing areas and over 1000m² of raw and finished goods storage.
So, who are Bulk Nutrients?
Bulk Nutrients is made up of many different departments; Production, Dispatch, Customer Service, Research & Development, Marketing and Quality Assurance.
Here at Bulk Nutrients we choose to focus on products that work and don’t push gimmicks.
The biggest difference you will find between our proteins and those of other companies is on the nutritional panel and the ingredient list. While many competitor’s products include all kinds of numbers, binders, fillers, thickening agents (which all reduce purity), Bulk Nutrients proteins simply have the necessary flavourer and sweetener. This means that gram for gram, we pack in as much protein as possible.
We don’t believe in hiding any ingredients or formulations from the public. All of our custom blends list exactly what you are getting which makes it very easy to compare the value for money of our supplements and understand exactly what you are putting into your body.
Service is a priority
In terms of service, we have a team dedicated to receiving, processing and packaging all orders. Due to our very high demand, this happens 6 days a week, starting from 7am each day.
All orders received before 3pm are dispatched on the same day and all orders under 3kg are sent via Australia Post’s Express Post service.
Our customer service doesn’t end with quick dispatch. Although we’re a discount manufacturer and supplier, we realise that the service surrounding our quality products are almost as important as the products themselves.
Our Customer Service team are always happy to chat about our products, explaining why we formulated a product the way we did and how it relates to your goals and needs.

100% Australian owned and operated
In Australia we’re lucky enough to have a variety of amazing raw ingredients grown/picked/dried/cultivated. At Bulk Nutrients we’re proud to include as many of these local ingredients as possible.
Most of our proteins come from Australia and New Zealand, with our biggest selling raw goods coming from grass fed cows in Warrnambool (Victoria) and Wynyard (Tasmania).
We source a vast number of ingredients like flavours and some carbohydrates from Australia and are aware of the knock on effect this has on local jobs, supporting the Australian economy.
Finally, thanks for supporting Bulk Nutrients. With each purchase made, you’re investing in an Australian success.
If you’re happy with our products and service, we really appreciate you recommending us to any friends/family/associates that use supplements. In turn we’ll give them exactly what we gave you – locally made, high quality products at unbelievable prices.
Til next time,
