Can I have a Saturday delivery?

Yes, we can offer a Saturday delivery for a £20 supplement. This is a direct cost charged to us from our couriers

Why do you not deliver on Mondays?

We don’t deliver on Mondays because we will not compromise the quality of the product by leaving your parcel in a delivery warehouse over the weekend. We intend for your order to arrive in the condition in which it was made.

Can I recycle the packaging?

Yes.  In line with our aim of minimizing our impact on the environment and reducing food miles with our ‘one order, one delivery’ policy, our packaging is manufactured from closed cell non-cross-linked polyethylene, a material that is fully recyclable; already 60% recycled and fully reusable. The void fill chips are called ‘biofill’ and are made from natural starch, are 100% biodegradable, compostable, and we are told are the secret weapon of fly fishermen!  Please do recycle the cardboard outer box.  Please re-use the ice packs for your own picnics. The ice packs are filled with purified and distilled water so can be opened and poured down the drain; the plastic can then be recycled.

Who will deliver?

All deliveries are sent via overnight courier by APC or DPD.  When we send you the email confirming despatch we will detail which company we are using.  Please see the below information regarding each carrier.

Can you deliver to my workplace?

Yes.

Yes.  Before 10am and Before Midday.  For our 'before 10am' service with APC, the cost will be £11.95 for up to 30kg.  Please note that we are unable to offer a timed service to the Scottish Highlands & islands, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, and Isles of Scilly.

What happens if I’m out when my delivery is attempted?

APC and DPD operate a 'no signature required' delivery scheme.  If you are not in, the driver will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place or with a neighbour.  If there is not a safe place then it will be taken to the local dept and a card will be left, saying where the delivery is being held.
