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 No value was added in this process, rather the outdated system of importers, distributors and resellers only served to increase prices to consumers.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.
While now a large brand, Bulk Nutrients still maintains a major focus on purity with our basic proteins such as WPC, WPI and Micellar Casein, which contain nothing but protein, flavouring and sweetener.
Over the years we have added a range of other dairy and non dairy proteins utilising cutting edge fat burning ingredients as well as enzymes which aid digestion and absorption in a massive range of flavours, and different sizes, for those seeking variety.
At Bulk Nutrients we are particularly proud of our R&D department which continues to develop marketing leading offerings covering fat burners, recovery and sleep products. This includes some genuine world firsts such as Future Whey which was released in 2017.
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.
