Unshelled Brazil nuts in Canada?

Postby secrethobospices » Wed 02 Apr 2008 19:58

Hi all,

Does anyone know where I can get unshelled Brazil nuts in Canada (I'm in Ottawa)? I found them at Bulk Barn a couple of times but haven't seen them since.

Thanks!

Just in case anyone is interested, I contacted NutsOnline.com and asked them if they were planning on shipping to Canada in the future. I got a reply from David that said:

"Unfortunately, to ship food products to Canada there must be a broker dealer involved at the border which represents a huge transaction cost per package. In addition, there are often duties associated with each shipment. We will ship to Canada at some point in the next couple of months. We are just exploring options where we can send pallets worth of shipments at once to avoid the huge costs and make shipping affordable."

To clarify I asked if this meant they would only be able to ship to Canada in bulk or would they be able to ship individual orders as well. He replied:

"We will be able to do both!"
