Choosing the best type of rock salt is important, and should be a key factor when you choose your rock salt wholesaler. In fact, there are three main things you want to consider when looking for a rock salt wholesale distributor, whether you are using the salt for business or personal purposes. These three things are quality of the salt, price of the salt, and reputation of the wholesaler. A wholesaler must pass the inspection on all three parts before you consider hiring them to be your distributor. Here are the things you should look for, and the questions you should ask, in order to make sure you are getting the best wholesale for you.
The first thing you should ask about is the quality of the salt. When it comes to rock salt, it is not all just the same thing. Most of the time, you are going to want to look for a wholesale who provides pure salt. This is the best choice for most industrial purposes, including in the food industry. It is usually the best choice for those in the road salt business, as well, but not always. There are certain additives that can be mixed in with the salt that will make it cake the snow and ice so that it is easily shoveled off of a road, or that will make it melt more quickly than just plain salt. In general, you do not want additives in rock salt you are going to be using for cooking purposes, unless it is iodine.
The next thing you should ask about is the price of the salt. Of course, you are going to want a wholesaler who offers good prices. However, remember that price is not always indicative of quality of product or service. Compare several wholesalers for good prices, and then look into the quality of the wholesalers who you have selected as the best price options. Ask questions about their product, question current and former customers if that information is available, and do research on the company online. You want to choose the wholesaler with the best price who also has the best product and service. If the price is a little higher than other wholesalers for a better product and service, that is the wholesaler you want to use.
Finally, ask about the reputation of the company. You can ask the company representatives themselves, but, of course, they will give you their own slanted perspective. You should ask them, but do your due diligence in other places, as well. Look them up on the website of the Better Business Bureau. Read up on their reviews online. Again, if you can question current or former customers, do so. You want a company that is reliable, offers a quality product, has excellent customer service, and cares about its clients. If you investigate all of these things before hiring a rock salt wholesaler, you will be happy with the one you choose
