RECIEPT OF DELIVERY

Though you don’t need to be home for delivery, all orders should be retrieved as soon as possible.

We pack the shipment with enough dry ice to facilitate the delivery but packages should not remain outside longer than 6-8 hours after delivery. When retrieved within that time window, your food should arrive refrigerator cold—below 40°F as measured with a food thermometer. 

We recommend checking the internal temperature of any meat that isn't solid and immediately discarding anything that isn't at a safe temperature. In accordance with USDA Freezing and Food Safety Guidelines, meat that is refrigerator cold, partly frozen (solid), or frozen can be placed into the freezer for later use. You should immediately discard any meat that’s above 40°F or meat that is exactly 40°F that may have been so for more than 2 hours.

If your order arrives damaged, please take a photo of the damage and send to our customer service team within 48 hours from when the order is delivered. Please ensure to include your name, email address, the order number and the item/s missing or damaged from your box and one of our friendly team will be in touch to remedy this for you.
