Depends on the dealer John, RRP on Propolis is £84.95, Growth is £78.95, but no-one ever charges that .

With Methley Koi being a small company it’s not that I won’t stock Aquasource food it’s just that I can’t afford to have say for example £1200 sitting on the shelf for months :roll:
BUT !!! If you wanted to say order your winter food for eg enough food of your choice to last you until spring and then order your summer food I would be willing to give you the best price possible for 10kg bags and collection only
So what’s your thoughts :confusion-shrug:

Andy it’s not a matter of getting smaller deals etc it’s a matter of getting the customers to buy it !!! Do I buy 10 bags of food and sell two ?? then I’m left with eight stuck on the shelf ( as I did last year )
The only way I can do it is if enough people want to pre order it at a given date , I can then place an order and possibly get one or two bags spare along with giving the customer the best possible price I can

Andy,

Aqua Source have always supported "smaller concerns", as you put it. The problem facing Baz has nothing to do with cost prices, it is more about the lack of support he has from consumers, period.

Baz will not get, nor does he want, "mates rates" , in fact nobody does, because this is business. Most of our customers are professional full time dealers, who have rent, rates, wages, utilities and other overheads to pay for, plus they pay VAT on the sale price. Others, that are not full time, they have other jobs, do not rely on the income to survive, and they do not pay VAT on the sale price, so they can reduce prices more.

Baz is honest and genuine, and has attempted to become a dealer in his own right, with a view to going full time. However, the lack of support from consumers in general has put paid to this, so please do not blame suppliers, or me personally, the blame lies with the consumer.
