  • If your order is below £19.99 a surcharge of £2 is added to your delivery charge.
  • We have order lead times because we work with lots of small suppliers and everything is fresh so they do need time to prepare your food.

National Deliveries (including North & East Cornwall)

  • We send everything on a next day delivery service. 99.9% of all our parcels are delivered within 24 hours of leaving our fridges in Cornwall.
  • On the rare occasions when your parcel is delayed, your box will be delivered the following day.
  • The maximum time a parcel is delayed would be 24 hours.
  • All our boxes are carefully packed to stay chilled for up to 48-52 hours with specialist thermal packaging.
  • We cannot provide refunds for delayed parcels unless the quality of the product has been compromised and cannot be used.
  • If you are not happy to accept a delayed delivery please cancel your order three days prior to it being delivered by calling 01872 211533.

What if I am not at home when the delivery is made?

  • All perishable parcels have to be left safe when the delivery is made even if you are not at home.
  • You will get a text/email from DPD or DHL and you can add leaving instructions here in advance of the delivery being made.
  • If you live locally please leave a note when placing your order and our delivery drivers will pop your box there for you.
  • We cannot accept responsibility for parcels that are not able to be left safe and have no leaving instructions, or for parcels that have be re-delivered for whatever reason.

Can we book a time slot?

  • We do not operate a timed delivery service.
  • If you require delivery by a specific time it is worth calling us as we are able to organise pre-10am and pre-12 deliveries.
  • We operate round based delivery system and deliver until all the boxes are dropped off, sometimes into the early evening.
  • This is much better for the environment, and busy Cornish roads, especially during the summer. 
  • If you are not going to be at home please let us know where to leave your box.
  • If you are staying in holiday accommodation let us know who you booked through. We will organise your delivery with the housekeepers.

We are coming down on holiday - how does the delivery work?

  • We work closely with the holiday booking agencies, holiday parks, campsites and their housekeepers.
  • We will arrange for your delivery to be waiting for you when you arrive.
  • If we are delivering in our own vans then we will get the key code information and leave the box with the housekeepers or inside the property.
  • If the delivery is via our courier - then the box is internally chilled and is fine to be left safe for your arrival if the housekeepers are no longer at the property.
  • It is preferable to have your delivery arranged for the day you arrive - this saves you having to wait in on the first day of your holiday for your delivery.
  • If you are concerned about your delivery you can always ask for our ICE PACKING SERVICE. There is a charge of £6.99 for this which will ensure your food is packed in a chiller box with ice and sealed. These boxes can be left for up to 48 hours and act as a mini fridge. 
  • If you have any questions about our service please call us and we can organise everything over the phone.

Can we collect from you?

  • Yes. It's really easy and collection is free. There is no minimum order.
  • We are based just minutes off the A30 at Scorrier in Redruth.
  • Just follow your sat nav and it'll bring you to our door where one of the team will load your boxes into your car.
  • Collect Wednesday - Friday (10am - 4pm) - if you need a collection outside of these times please let us know.
  • If you are visiting on holiday and require a later collection, or a Saturday collection please just let us know.
