Wholesale Macarons

wholesale macarons in bulk

Looking to add macarons to your offerings?

There’s a reason why we make one thing and one thing only! Doing everything is impossible!

So if you think having a macaron supplier for your business would mean there’s one less thing for you to worry about, then please get in touch! Everything we do is made by hand with quality ingredients, so outsourcing your macaron supplier doesn’t mean you’re compromising on the quality of what you buy in. We’re a small business with high end clients from five star hotels to local bakeries and we want to work with you and support you.

As a manufacturer of macarons, we’re always excited to find and work with new wholesale customers. But some may ask… 

What Qualifies as Wholesale? 

If you are a business that is looking to buy in bulk (over 100 macarons) on a regular occasion (no less than once a month), we can offer you macarons at our wholesale rates. However, if you have a special occasion like a wedding or event, we kindly ask that you choose from our already extensive range of macarons which you can buy without gift packaging at a competitive rate.

Whether you are a deli, cafe, hotel, restaurant, catering company, or an amazing cake maker, we’d be delighted to be your supplier. 

Ok, so how do I apply?

We’ll ask you to download our new customer form and fill it out. 

It’s really important that you let us know your rough forecasted order size and frequencies. We know this can be hard when starting out but the reason we ask is because we need to factor in this to our production plan and make sure we have enough space for a new wholesale customer and can keep up with our current promised lead times. 

Send this back to us via email and if we need to, we’ll ask you a couple of questions. 

Otherwise, we’ll set up your account on our website, send you the link to complete the set up and then you’re good to go and place your first order!

I’ve created an account, how do I place my first order?

As a wholesale customer, when you log in, you will see a slightly different version of the website than our retail customers. Once you have logged in, choose the macarons you need adding the quantities required. Proceed to checkout where you will see the final discounted unit price. 

There is a delivery charge of £15 as larger orders must be sent with a courier.

Let’s cut to the chase, what’s the unit price on the macarons?

Our wholesale prices work on the basis of the more you buy, the better the unit price. It starts at 85p and goes down to 50p/macaron depending on final cart quantities. 

The great thing about macarons is that you can freeze them so, a lot of our customers buy in bulk and freeze upon delivery to get the best unit price. 

If you want to buy our macarons as gift boxes, you will have to buy our macarons and packaging separately. We sell the macarons in bulk but not as finished boxes. 

Our company uses a different order system e.g. Procure Wizard, is that ok?

Yes, we have a couple of clients who use their own systems and we’ll try our best to work with you on this. However, we won’t accept emails via phone or email, they must be placed on our online platform. 

What are your lead times?

For orders of around 100-600 macarons we can normally send those next day and your order should be with you in 2 days. Orders made over the weekend are processed on Monday. 

If your order is larger, it may take us up to a week to fulfil it depending on how busy we are. If your order is over 1000 macarons and you need it urgently, please let us know. 

What are your payment terms?

Our order system requires that payment is made up front when placing your order online at checkout. However, after working with you for a few months, we may be able to offer 30 day credit terms. 

 

How do your macarons travel?

We pack the macarons in acrylic trays that mean they travel well. We pack them in with biodegradable packing materials and send them on their way with DPD Local courier. Take the macaron trays out of the parcel and put straight in the fridge or freezer. 

We are soon trialling using dry ice as a means of keeping the macarons frozen in transit. 

 

Can I order your gift boxes to use in my store? 

You can buy our branded packaging but at present, we do not have non branded packaging for wholesale customers to source from us directly. We can put you in touch with a designer who can help the process of getting your own bespoke packaging though! 

We do not sell pre packed gift boxes as a wholesale offering. 

Do you sell the macaron display towers?

No, we don't, but we can point you in the direction of our supplier Acrylicraft

What flavours of macaron do you make?

We change the flavours throughout the year but we make sure we have 12 core flavoured which are:

Chocolate, Caramel, Pistachio, Vanilla, Lemon, Rose, Raspberry, Strawberries and Cream, Chocolate Mint, Nutella, Coffee, Earl Grey. 

Every month there is an additional 2-3 new flavours from Mojito to Earl Grey Tea or Peach. We’ll let you know about our flavour calendar in advance of their release.

Can you make me a bespoke flavour and colour?

Bespoke designs require a minimum of 200 macarons and can be made dependent on time of year and lead time given to us. They may be subject to an additional fee e.g. if you require a logo or design printed on top of the macaron. 

If you require a specific colour for your own client, this can be done but would be charged at the standard retail rate for below 200 macarons.

What other products do you have for wholesale?

You can buy vegan macarons (no tiered discounting available) and macaron shells on their own, unfilled. This is a great opportunity for customers who get special requests for flavours and all you need to do is make the filling. 

What would you suggest we charge as the RRP?

Mademoiselle Macaron has always had a sliding scale for macarons not only for wholesale clients but retail customers too. From £1.50 per individual macaron to 12 macarons for £12, your pricing will be unique to you, we don’t insist on the price you sell the macarons at and we know for many customers, the macarons form part of an offering e.g. an afternoon tea or celebratory cake.

What’s the best way to display the macarons?

As the macarons are a chilled product, we recommend putting them in a display fridge. We advise against pre packing them in boxes and putting them on shelves as they aren’t made to be an ambient product. 

 In our shop we displayed what we knew we could sell in a day and used the ability to store macarons in the freezer as a means of controlling our stock and minimising waste. 

The trays that our macarons are delivered in are great for using to display the macarons in cabinets.

Do you provide point of sale material?

We can create a flavour guide and menu for you to share with your clients. 

What allergens are in your macarons?

All macarons contain nuts and eggs and dairy. Macarons which contain chocolate also contain soya as a result. 

Our macarons have been tested for gluten and with the exception of our biscoff and cookies and cream macaron, they are all gluten free. 

We. Have now added vegan macarons to the range too which are gluten AND dairy free. 

What is the shelf life of macarons?

Macarons are best kept in the fridge and consumed within seven days. If kept in the freezer, they can last for up to three months. It takes approximately 30 minutes for a macaron to defrost. 

Should you like a copy of our shelf life test results, please let us know. 

What size are your macarons?

As all of our macarons are made by hand, there can be occasional variations but on average we work to a diameter of 4cm. 

Are you accredited by any other body other than your local council?

We have annual audits run by the Safe and Local Supplier Approval (SALSA). This requires us to have extensive tracking and hygiene records as well as hold certification on all suppliers we use to make our macarons.
