Customer must transfer all the frozen products to the freezer and chilled products to the fridge immediately after arrival.
We use the most sustainable materials such as polystyrene foam boxes to pack our frozen and chilled products. It is to ensure the quality of the goods when arrival. We also use dry ice for frozen products and ice-packs for chilled products to maintain the temperature during delivery. The purpose of this is to make sure products are in controlled temperature when arriving to our customers.
Duration of dry ice/ice-packs
Frozen packaging can last round 24 hours starting on the day of dispatch. Food For Foodies will not guarantee the quality of the goods after 24 hours.
Frozen & chilled products will be dispatched Monday - Thursday.
Orders placed for frozen & chilled products on a Thursday (after 3pm) to Sunday will be dispatched on the following Monday.
However, in some exceptional cases:
- Road closure.
- Insufficient dry ice supply
- Severe weather conditions
Food For Foodies reserve the right to hold the order until the problems are clear up.
