Fundraising with Rancho Vignola new crop nuts and dried fruit. First of all, our business operates once a year only, importing the best new crop nuts and dried fruit from around the world to our British Columbia warehouse where all orders are processed and shipped out. We publish a wholesale price list every year in early September which lists all products in full-case amounts and in “split cases” of 5-lb bags. Wholesale prices for full cases are the same as those a retail grocery or health food store would pay, which means there’s lots of room for marking up prices for resale to generate fundraising income. The wholesale price list always has a firm order deadline near the end of September.
Placing an order. Once you've selected products that meet the minimum, it's time to place your order. Most of our customers find it most convenient to order online as it is accessible 24 hours a day, allows payments to be made securely, and provides an automatic confirmation of your order details. If you are unable to order online, you are also welcome to place your order by email, phone or fax. All wholesale orders must be submitted before the wholesale ordering deadline; however, due to the congestion we experience towards the deadline, it’s best to get your order in earlier if you can.
Make up to 70% profit margin! Fundraising groups usually purchase our products in full cases, but offer their members smaller packages on a customized order form at marked-up prices (see sample fundraising order form). The difference in price between the wholesale price per pound and the retail package price per pound is the mark-up, usually around 45-70%, which are standard fundraising mark-ups.

Depending on the package size, these mark-ups represent the profit your group can generate.

Purchasing in full cases means that your group's orders must be packaged down by the group’s volunteers (see Packaging your orders).
