We buy our supplies bulk from our suppliers and we re-bottle the products to different small sizes for sale. We don't want to sell the bulk product that we received from the suppliers to the public.
We also need to track the quantity of the bulk item in Shopify.
From what I know, I can put the bulk item as a variant of a product then I can also receive the bulk variant in the Transfers section. Then I can manually reduce and add items to the variant for my inventory purposes.
Is there a way to do this or is there a plugin that can serve my purpose?

This is an accepted solution.
@rmnghshopify is a poor solution to track your production parts inventory. you'd want to invest in an ERP or manufacturer inventory tracking solution.
That being said, you can make your bulk product unavailable in all sales channels so that it's only visible to you in admin, and not to any customers. That way it's never available for sale.
