Bulk Food Update

To those lovely 75 people who participted in the Bulk Food Survey, thankyou. We have your results safe and sound. Unfortunately the site we were using has fallen victim to a hack, and is unlikely to be any further use to us before semester begins (which is when we want to start acting on the results of the survey).
If you hadn’t gotten around to filling out the survey, we still want to know what you think! We want to know what you want to buy, and how much, and when. Beans? Nuts? Cleaning products? Tea? Other supplies?
Do you have a strong preference for the co-op to only stock vegan food, or would you (for example) like to be able to order free-range eggs with your vegie box?
Most importantly: some of our stock is Australian origin, some is organic, some is both and some is neither. Because we like to encourage sustainable, ethical food, we cost the stock accordingly; we multiply the wholesale cost by different amounts depending on these factors: 1.8 if neither organic nor Australian, 1.6 if one of Australian and organic, 1.4 if both.
How do you feel about that?
