  1. I’m starting a cookie company making Italian fig cookies and am looking to buy wholesale and in bulk. Do you deal with individuals that need about 30 lbs at a time and would I be able to get wholesale prices?

    I’ve found a company in New York that would sell me 24 pounds for $75 or $3.13/lb. Can you match this price? If so it would save me some of the cost having to ship from New York.
