Short Life Policy


Items classed as having a short shelf life are items dated today’s date or tomorrow. Some items, such as fresh bread and prepared salads have a naturally short product life.

We’ll highlight any short life items in the email we send with your e-receipt, so you can easily check. You can refuse delivery of short-life products and we will automatically process a refund for the items. 

If these items are not highlighted to you by the driver or on your e-receipt, please contact us and we will resolve this for you.
