    Thanks a lot for this. From what I can see you have to order between 12,500 tonnes and 5,000,000 tonnes! He only wants 2.

    Okay, in all seriousness... Costco or Makro.

    EDIT: You might also ask a small sweet manufacturer.

    I worked for the company that supplied Fork Lift Trucks to Tate and Lyle Sugars next to London City Airport. It all depends where you are in the world, transport is the issue/cost factor

    Thank you very much for all your answers. I'm not the beekeeper, a teacher here is. I'll pass it all on.
