Now that you have ingredientsonline.com, what is the role of Green Wave Ingredients?

 Ingredientsonline.com is our new brand name. The company's legal name remains Green Wave Ingredients Inc., which manages and operates the new online platform.


 What exactly does "factory direct" mean and how does it work?

 Factory direct means an elite group of factories sell their products directly to end users through ingredientsonline.com's e-commerce platform, just like Amazon.com. The platform provides customer service, quality control and fulfillment service. With this model, customers get quality ingredients, U.S. stock, lower cost and prompt service.

Can I still order over the phone/email/fax or do I have to use the online platform?

Yes! You can still place your order over the phone or send us a purchase order. However, some customers who at first were unsure about using ingredientsonline.com now prefer the new system because it saves them time, money, hassles, and they appreciate the transparency of the online platform. 


How do I setup a new account?

It’s really easy to setup a new account, and you will get 50 reward points just for registering online! Click here to register. If you’re an existing customer with Green Wave Ingredients (GWI), we can complete the whole process for you. Just email us at [email protected], and we’ll notify you when your account is ready for purchase!

I’m having trouble signing in.

Sorry to hear that! First, try resetting your password. If you’re still having issues, just give us a call at 562-207-9770, and our customer service team would be happy to assist you.


I want to deactivate my account. 

Email us at    [email protected], should you need to deactivate/close your account.


We have multiple users in our company that want to use the service

There are few options to do this

1. Multiple users share one account. We recommend this when multiple users use the same email account, such as [email protected], etc. The advantages of doing this are that everyone can see the full order lists being placed by the company and the reward points can be consolidated.

2. Register multiple accounts using the same company name. This will provide convenience for each user to manage the account, but they won’t see the orders placed by the other members in the company and cannot share the reward points. If your company has different buyers in charge of different product portfolios, we recommend this.

Who we sell to?

Our E-commerce service is available for manufacturers and end users only: Brand Marketers or Contract Manufacturers, in one word, the end users of ingredients for manufacturing purposes. We cannot sell to distributors, importers, trading companies, ingredients factories and consumers.

  • If you are an ingredient supplier, please contact Taylor Allen, our Distributor Sales at [email protected] for a bulk discount price.
  • If you are a service provider (such as Co-Packer, lab, etc...), please contact us at [email protected] to submit usage and application of the ingredients purchased from GWI.
  • If you are an ingredient manufacturer, we’d like to invite you to our online product listing service for exposure and sales enhancement, please contact us at [email protected]
  • Due to its scope of business, GWI cannot sell products to consumers directly.



Can’t find a product?

If you can’t find your product online, please contact us at 562-207-9770 or [email protected]. We will be glad to further assist you.


Can I download documents online?

Of course! You can have 24/7 access to QC documents such as MSDS, Kosher, Allergen Statement, Combined Statement, Specification Sheet, etc.


Why can’t I see COA?

Due to the nature of COAs (lot specific), COAs are only available after purchase. But customers are welcome to reference our online Spec Sheets for general product information.


How do I cancel or change an order?

Please contact us at 562-207-9770 or [email protected] to cancel or change information on already confirmed orders. We will need a specific time frame for revisions and cancellations.

Can I order repacks?

We encourage customers to order by standard packages, so no repacks are available online. With our tier pricing system, you can enjoy online exclusive discounts with high volume price breaks. Please reach out to our offline sales and customer service for repacks at 562-207-9780.
