Special Packing and Delivery Policy

(For the Frozen product only)

Frozen food is considered to be one of the safest forms of food preservation. However, if handled or stored incorrectly, there may potentially be a high health risk to the consumer. To help strengthen our shipping efforts and ensure your product arrives in pristine condition, we implemented different packing and delivery methods for frozen products.

 

Which shipping method will be applied?

Standard shipping will be selected as our shipping method for frozen products to ensure best possible quality of your products. Average transit time is 2-3 working days, excluding Saturday and Sunday. For this reason, any orders placed after 12 pm on Friday will not be dispatched until the following week to ensure the items are in the best possible condition.

 

How is my shipment packed?

We pack frozen products using dry ice and insulated bags. This keeps your products cooler for longer while in transit and ensures your product arrives in pristine condition. Please note that there will be an additional weight for the dry ice and the insulated bag added to your order if you are purchasing frozen items.

 

What do I need to know about shipping cost and surcharge?

The total shipping cost is including the base cost of transporting goods and the surcharge. Please note that the surcharge is applied to the frozen products only. (For products that are classified as frozen items, see the product page.)

The free-shipping policy is applied within the UK border for the base cost of transporting goods and does not include the surcharge. So, you can get free of charge for the base cost of transporting goods on orders over £60, provided they have no frozen products. However, there is an extra charge of £6.00 for the frozen items due to the surcharge.

In the United Kingdom, the base cost of transporting goods will be £3.95 for any order.

Currently, we do not limit the weight of your orders. However, the minimum order value must be £40.00 per shipment. We also encourage you to buy in bulk with an invoice over £60 to save your packing expenses and time.

To illustrate this point, let’s see an example below:

Let’s say your order includes one or more frozen items to be shipped somewhere in the United Kingdom. If your order is under £60 but over £40, your total shipping cost will be £9.95 per shipment. This means the total shipping cost includes the base cost of transporting goods (£3.95) plus the surcharge (£6.00). If your order is over £60, the total shipping cost is £6.00 for the surcharge, as the base cost of transporting products is free.

To put it simply, if your order is over £60 and does not include any frozen items, you are free of charge for the total shipping cost.

Please see the picture below for more information about the shipping cost and surcharge:

What do I need to do when receiving the parcels?

Firstly, you must be available on the day of delivery to sign for the parcels or provide a secure location to ensure your order can be delivered to you.

Secondly, once your parcel has been received, please place these items in the freezer straight away.

Finally, you should check out the condition of everything as it arrives. In case the packaging is damaged, please report to us within 1-2 hours after you receive the parcels.

Please note that our ice packs can keep the frozen items at low temperatures upon arrival. The frozen items might be slightly defrosted on the surface, but will still be in their best condition for refreezing or immediate consumption.
