Some websites provide wholesale food products for purchase, such as WholeSaleCentral.com and RestaurantDepot.com. To access a wholesale food price list, you must register with a wholesale food supplier and speak with a representative.
The business of wholesale foods serves restaurants, small businesses and institutional customers so that they may purchase products in bulk at low prices. They require a tax id number for the customer to prove he has a registered business and often require a minimum order.
Bulk purchasing, on the other hand, serves individual consumers who purchase products in bulk at low prices but without such requirements. Costo and Sam's Club are examples of bulk retailers; both are membership-only warehouse clubs.
