Please note: orders placed during busy periods may be subject to a longer lead time and we cannot guarantee delivery within the above time zone. We will however do our upmost to ensure all deliveries are as fast as possible. Please call our online team if you have any questions and we will be happy to help.
If the products in your basket weigh over 25.01kg and you live outside mainland UK, the calculation may be double due to the shipment taking up 2 parcels as to 1.
Delivery cost will be calculated at checkout. If you are unsure whether your delivery address falls inside UK Mainland, please use the DHL Service availability and delivery times graph (link below) where you can search using your postcode. https://www.dhlparcel.co.uk/en/business-users/support-hub/business-support/postcode-service-availability.html
Palatable Items will be organised with the customer and therefore delivery may have a longer lead time due to the admin that needs to be done for this.
Items weighing under 1kg are mostly sent with Royal Mail and items weighing over 1kg are sent with DHL. If your item is sent with DHL we are able to offer a track and trace service in real-time. Check out their new app below which can help you track your order.

We are now able to ship daily to customers across mainland Europe. Since Brexit 1st Jan 2021, we are unable to ship casings and certain food products to Europe. Items not able to be shipped to Europe are highlighted on the website and you will not be able to proceed with your order at the checkout if these items are added to the basket.
Following Brexit you will no longer be charged UK Tax at checkout but you will be charged Customs Duty and VAT which is calculated at the checkout for an upfront total cost of your order.
The postage, customs and VAT rates are all dependent on what you order and are calculated by price and weight.
Please see below for the list of European countries we ship to;
Republic of Ireland, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Crete, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece (Mainland), Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland.
If your country is not listed here, please contact us for a shipping quote and we will be happy to help.
For most European destinations the delivery time can vary, but we suggest allowing 10-14 days working days, depending on your location. There may be delays on shipments as we and couriers are still getting used to VAT checks and customs clearance since Brexit.
We sometimes can ship to the Far East, Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA depending on the items being ordered. Please contact us for advice on what can be sent and a shipping quote.
If goods are not delivered in the specified time we are not liable for any trader's contracts. It is up to the buyer to ensure they order with an ample amount of time and take into account human error, busy periods, and road disruption.
