Many of you might have asked this question many a time but it seems like we never quite grasp the reason as to why is Australian Garlic so expensive? I for one would not really know where to get hold of such a product. I am pretty sure there are no health shops around here selling it since it is an imported product. The only option that we have is to go to the local supermarket in our town and buy it, which is not really an ideal situation since we live in a rural setting. This means that we either have to buy this from the supermarket or from members of the family and that can be quite difficult as they are so used to getting it for free from friends and relatives.
So now we are left with another question, that is why is Australian garlic so expensive? Well, if we were to analyse the market properly, it would appear that the main reason is the quality of the product. Since this is an imported product from overseas, it is most likely that the quality is a lot better than if we made it at home. If we were to make our own, then chances are that we would be able to cut down on the price a little and still be able to get that good fresh taste that people love when they eat garlic.
In addition to this, there are some other hidden costs that are attached to this product. For example, we know that garlic contains a lot of sulphur which increases the cost of shipping it back to Australia. But did you know that most of the garlic in Australia actually originates from China and thus has to be re-imported to be sold here at reasonable cost? That means that another hidden cost of importing products is also being incurred and that can add up to a lot of money.
So what is the solution to this dilemma? There are many solutions and the most logical one would be to source your garlic through bulk buying. By doing so, you can ensure that you get the product for less money than if you just went straight to the supermarket to buy it. This can easily translate into an additional 10% of your profits as the bulk imported product will always be cheaper than the local product.
However, the problem with sourcing your Australian garlic via bulk buying is that it is not that easy. It is pretty much impossible to find a wholesaler that will sell to you for such a low price since Australian garlic is a premium product that is usually quite dear. So, how can you make sure that you are getting a good quality product for a good price? You have two options, you can either look to a company that import their own product and then you could go and source the product yourself.
There are many companies out there that will ship directly to your house, and once you receive the goods you will quickly notice the difference in quality. The imported products are normally not that testing for quality control, and there are chances that the product might not even reach you at all. The other option is to look for a company who will take it upon themselves to provide you with a quality product, even if it is not an imported product. As we said earlier, there are many companies out there that ship from Australia with each one being slightly different. It will often be up to you to determine which is the best option for you based on your budget and quality standards.
