    Where have you been getting your supplies?  What companies have you tried?  Do you mean that you want to buy from the producer or maybe the warehouse distributor?  How quickly do you need the big quantities?  Do you need 500 pounds of "sunflower" once a year, or once a week?

    We are making meat products but can not find cheap meat(pork,beef,chicken) ground(500lbs a day of each) I mean we do not need restaurant quality meat.In Restaurant Depot they are selling good products

    Is there any meat markets for whole sallers in Los Angeles area?

    Are there any food distributors in Los Angeles area?

     Your title says "professional caterer" But you don't need restaurant quality meat. May I ask what you make?

    You are in Los Angeles, everything is available to you in this market.
