We now are also selling salt pickled sakura in bulk for food professionals. Bulk is available in three grades depending on the purity of the flowers:
1) Extra Fine (about 1167 flowers per kg) Each flower has been inspected and hard parts as well as broken flowers have been removed. During this inspection process insects that have been living inside the flowers also have been removed as far as possible. This grade is recommended for makers of sweets requiring a smooth and pleasant texture. Our consumer packs (30g, 500g, 1kg) are all based on Extra Fine quality.
2) Selection Flowers go through a rough inspection and filtering process. Loose stems and parts not related to the flowers are being filtered out to a large extend. This grade is suitable for companies that do not need perfect flowers or where the purpose is to decorate non-edible (e.g. cosmetics).
3) Raw Bulk Flowers are shipped in bulk without inspection. This grade is suitable for companies with much cheaper labor than Japan and that have the resources to do this by their own. A production flow chart and product description for customs office and import authorities are made available upon request. FDA registration is currently under preparation
