CHANGES TO OUR COOKIE POLICY

We may change how we use cookies from time to time to ensure we meet the high standards our customers expect. We recommend you check this page periodically to review our current policies and practices.

 

Our Terms and Conditions

  1. GENERAL

We aim to excel in the quality of our produce and the service we provide. By shopping with us online you can expect high standards, just as our shop customers do.

All our goods and services comply with all the standards required by relevant legislation. When shopping with us online, a Contract of Sale is made at the time we accept your order, and the contract shall be under English law, irrespective of where you are. By placing your order you accept these terms and conditions.

  1. DELIVERY ARRANGEMENTS

When placing your order, it is important that someone should be at home to take delivery. The delivery shall be deemed to have been made either when the consignee accepts delivery in person, or when the driver leaves your chill-pack at the premises.

  1. PACKAGING FOR DELIVERY

You may rest assured we have taken great care to ensure your goods arrive in best condition. Your produce will be carefully packaged to maintain freshness. We will deliver directly from our shop to your door in our own refrigerated vehicle.

  1. ACCEPTABLE WEIGHT VARIATION

When you place your order, it will be for a nominal weight of produce, at a specified price. We will collect the payment via the payment method you select when placing the order. Because orders are individually prepared, it can be expected that there may be some small variation in weights above or below the weight you choose, and it is impractical for us to request additional payments or process small refunds. We will ensure that this variation never exceeds more or less than 10% of any item specified. Items delivered within 10% of the weight ordered shall be deemed complete, except for the products that are sold as a unit price. Where applicable, we show the weight price online for guidance only. Due to the nature of our products weight cannot always be guaranteed. We will not accept liability for underweight or overweight produce. The published price is the unit price, the weight bracket is a guide weight bracket for the products.. We Will endeavour to meet weight expectations and the minimum weight. 

  1. ALLERGENS

Whilst we take every precaution to avoid and minimise cross contamination of our food, we cannot guarantee that trace elements of allergens do not exist. Our food production areas also handle products containing all 14 allergens. These include: MILK, NUTS, EGGS, PEANUTS, FISH , CRUSTACEANS, MOLLUSCS, CEREALS, SOYA, SULPHITES, CELERY, LUPINS and MUSTARD. 

  1. UNFULFILLED ORDERS

Because of the nature of some of our produce and limited supply, it is possible that from time to time, we may be unable to fulfill some orders. If your order cannot be fulfilled, we will let you know as quickly as possible, normally within one working day of you placing the order, and offer alternative produce or cancellation at your discretion. In the event of us having to cancel, we will make an immediate and full refund of any monies paid.

  1. GUARANTEE OF SATISFACTION

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the quality of the produce received, you should contact us within 24 hours of receipt. All complaints will be dealt with personally and immediately. Your statutory rights are not affected. We regret we are not able to accept returned goods or claims for goods ordered in error, due to their perishable nature.

  1. NON-DELIVERY CLAIMS

In the event of your order failing to arrive when expected, please contact us by email or by telephone within 24 hours of the expected delivery quoting your order number. We will immediately investigate and let you know the situation.

  1. CANCELLATION

We regret that due to the very short timescale involved in processing produce orders, you cannot cancel or amend your order once it has been placed.

  1. DATA PROTECTION

All data we collect from you will be used exclusively for the purposes of our dealings, to help us offer improved or new services to you, and may be stored on computer. Your details will be held securely, in confidence, and never disclosed to any third party without your express permission, save by order of a court.

  1. REFUND POLICY

The Buyer may cancel any order for Goods for any reason up to the point of dispatch and any payments made by the Buyer shall be refunded in full within 28 days. The Buyer may cancel any Contract for Services at any time before seven working days has passed from the day after the Contract was made and any payments made by the Buyer shall be refunded in full within 28 days. If, however, the Supplier starts to perform its side of the Contract with the agreement of the Buyer before the Buyer exercises this right to cancel, the right to cancel is lost.

Where a claim of defect or damage is made, the Goods may have to be returned by the Buyer to the Supplier within the best before date or use by date on the product. The Buyer shall be entitled to a replacement or a full refund (including delivery costs) plus any return postal charges if the Goods are in fact defective and/or need to be returned.

Goods to be returned must clearly show the order number obtained from the Supplier on the package.

Christmas Orders and Covid

When an order is placed for Christmas, unfortunately, we cannot refund if the order is cancelled within 14 days before the due delivery or collection date.  This is due to the fact that all products are ordered specifically to satisfy orders.  Poultry is killed to order up to 14 days prior to the delivery date.  A full credit note will be issued.  

 

Under our Covid policies and our producers policies, once a product has been delivered by James of Shepperton, there cannot be any return, due to contamination risks.
