What do I do if I wish to return something I purchased?

You are welcome to return any goods purchased within 7 days of receiving the them. We can only accept goods for return that are still in their original packaging. We cannot accept goods for return once they have been opened or used unless there is a definite quality issue.

You will have to pay to have the item couriered or posted back to us. If it is a definite quality issue with the product and as soon as we receive it, we will issue you with a credit on your next purchase to the same value of the return postage. Proof of postage will be required. Our policy is to deduct a 10% handling fee from the original price if the return of the goods requires a lot of administration to get it back. Or you can return it personally.


What do I do if there is a quality issue with my product?

We do try to ensure all of our products are of high quality but if you find your product to be of poor quality i.e. doesn't taste as it usually does, content looks bad, then please let us know. Some of our products do have strange smells and tastes and the consistency can vary slightly but if you feel there is something wrong with it then let us know so we can rectify the problem.


What do I do if I receive goods damaged or broken in transit?

If you do not receive your order in mint condition or if anything is broken or damaged please let us know immediately so that we can ensure the situation is rectified with the courier service. If you can, please do take a photo of the damaged item as this helps improve the way products are sent. Once your delivery gets despatched we cannot be held responsible for losses, breakages, etc. whilst in transit. Unless you have opted for delivery insurance you will have no recourse for losses or damages, etc. So we advise you to ask for delivery insurance when ordering.
