A product is Currently Out of Stock or has disappeared from the site. How long until it will be available again?
Most items will be back in stock within one to two weeks others could be up to a month or 2 depending on the date of the next shipment. Feel free to ask about a particular product here.

What is the difference between an expiration date and a best before date?
An expiration date is the date after which the product is of no use, whereas the best before date indicates the date before the product gives its original flavour. Therefore it still safe to consume products after this best before date.

Do you sell products with expired dates?
We stock many short shelf life items and we will provide either the best by date or expiration dates as much as possible. Online, we only sell current expiration dates and nothing which has expired. Manufacturers indicate best by dates to advise you when the product is best consumed. Certain items such as chips will have a much shorter shelf life so be sure you want the product knowing this.
