How to Win New Customers with Bulk!


Co-founder of Left Coast Naturals

SEPTEMBER 14, 2021

(1:15 PM – 1:45 PM PT)


A well-run Bulk department is a key draw for progressive shoppers!  Customers are asking what they can do to help reduce their impact, and Bulk offers many green benefits including reduced packaging and food waste.  Bulk is also a home cook’s destination – to help restock their pantry with ingredients direct from farmers.   

Bulk also offers high margins and uniqueness to your store. 

Left Coast Organics has managed bulk for over 20 years and has developed a model for creating exciting bulk departments.  Our founder, Ian Walker, will explain the model and share examples of bulk department makeovers facilitated by Left Coast Organics value added services. 


Ian Walker co-founded Left Coast Naturals twenty-five years ago. With a passion for sustainability, Ian and his business were early pioneers in the organic food industry. Today, Left Coast Naturals is Canada’s largest Organic bulk foods distributor and manufactures two in-house brands, Hippie Snacks and Left Coast Organics. As a strong believer that business has a responsibility to lead the way to a sustainable future, Ian is committed to a triple bottom line philosophy. He lives in North Vancouver with his partner Louise and their four kids spending lots of time in the mountains.
