We do our best to dispatch all orders placed for UK mainland delivery the same working day when received by 1pm. Otherwise, orders are dispatched the next working day. Our standard working days are Monday - Friday (we are closed over the weekend and UK public holidays).

Our UK courier is DPD, carefully chosen by us as we believe they have the most reliable & swift service, tracking options, and their carbon neutral commitment minimises impact on the environment.

We offer free delivery on orders of food sample packs via Royal Mail.

Delivery FAQs

Do you offer weekend delivery?

Our delivery days with DPD are Monday - Friday. We do not offer Saturday or Sunday delivery.

Do I have to be in to receive my order?

You don't need to wait in at home to receive your order from us. DPD offer a "safe place" option, so that if you might be out, you won't miss your parcel.

Common safe places are: in the porch, in the recycling bin, or behind the gate as examples.

We recommend downloading the DPD app onto your phone and adding your 'what three words' location to help DPD locate your address. 

Please note that by adding a safe place location to your order, you as the customer accept full responsibility of your order. Please click here for more information about your delivery with DPD here.
