Thank you for your interest in purchasing from the wide range of specialty products that Bake Group distributes.
Bake Group is a wholesaler of a growing range of products to the bakery and sugar craft industry and as such, does not sell to the general public. We represent several international distributors and this list will be growing.
If after reading the terms & conditions below, you are interested in opening an account or would like to discuss anything more, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As much as we would like to sell to all who inquire, we unfortunately cannot sell to those who may not qualify. In an effort to protect the integrity of the retail marketplace, we will only sell to genuine businesses that meet the requirements below.
We reserve the right to refuse supply to businesses who do not meet our criteria.

4. A copy of ABN Certificate.
5. Bake Group reserves the right to not approve a wholesale customer who operates in close proximity to an existing wholesale customer of Bake Group.

It opens up our online ordering facility, which is not available to the general public and also access to the wholesale price list, your account details and order tracking.
For your convenience, once you commence an order, it will stay active on your computer allowing you to add to your order until you are ready to submit. Products are broken into minimum order amounts or “quantity breaks”.
Orders placed, once submitted are emailed automatically to us. They are then filled, stock permitting, and sent to you by your selected or best freight method after payment has been received.

Freight is on-charged on the invoice. We use a range of freight options that the customer can prefer in their shopping cart, otherwise the most economical option will be chosen automatically.
When the order has been packed, goods are sent once payment notification is received.
Unfortunately at this time we do not offer back orders but will look at adding this in the future. Please re-order items you require.

Goods that arrive back in our warehouse in a damaged state will not be credited (The onus is on you to pack the goods correctly).

On receipt of the goods in good order, they will be credited back to your Account.
All credits will be posted to an account. No cash returns will be paid.
We look forward to helping you improve and grow your business with our range of products. Any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
