BULK WHOLE FOODS: Please read the following info about packaging.

Here at The Severn Weigh we offer a range of bulk dried organic whole foods which we weigh out for you - just select the amount you would like using the increments available. Some of our bulk food products are delivered to us in paper sacks whilst other foods need to be kept in plastic packaging in order to remain fresh. Where there is a choice, however, we will always attempt to buy foods in the most sustainable packaging which we aim to reuse or re-home where possible before recycling. 

Select the food group from the drop down menu on the left and click on each item for product details, price and quantities available to buy. 

PACKING YOUR ORDERS:

* We will package your dried foods in recycled kraft paper bags for the majority of dried foods. For sticky fruits, some oily nuts and spices however, we have found that these products do not store well in paper bags and so we tend to use wood based FSC cellophane bags which will naturally decompose in your home compost - generally up to 12 weeks dependent upon the conditions of your compost bin. 

If you would prefer not to receive any products in these cellophane home compostable bags, however, please say so in the comment box at check out, asking for paper only.

* If you are able to deliver them to us, you are very welcome to provide your own containers for us to fill, providing that they are clean and dry and are food safe. We cannot put foods into containers previously used to store non-foods such as cleaning products.) Kilner jars and jam jars are perfect containers. You are also welcome to provide clean cotton produce bags.

* We also have a range of new jars and produce bags which you can buy and we can fill for you. Click here.

* Lastly, we have been saving jam jars which are washed in a dishwasher and may be borrowed for orders - subject to availability. If you would like us to use these, should any appropriately sized be available, please state in the comment box at check out. 

* If you need to discuss packaging options, email us at hello@severnweigh.co.uk or you could call the store 01454 419475 (we may be busy packing orders so please bear with us).
