Due to the free-flowing nature of foods placed on grazing tables, in grazing boxes and on platters we cannot guarantee that there will not be cross contamination between foods which may contain allergens.
Once grazing tables have been assembled it becomes the purchaser’s responsibility to ensure appropriate food safety measures are implemented.
The Proprietor is not liable for any adverse reactions to our products where you have proceeded with an order and failed to inform the Proprietor at the time of booking of any food allergies.
The Proprietor advises against our products for those with severe allergies as the Proprietor may use products which indicate traces of allergens and the Proprietor’s kitchen processes foods and products which may contain allergens.

Due to the perishable nature of goods to be delivered they will not be left unattended unless instructed to do so by the purchaser or recipient.

If the recipient (or other authorised person) of the grazing box/platter is not in attendance to receive the order the Proprietor will take reasonable steps to contact the recipient and/or purchaser. In the event that contact cannot be made and instructions are not provided to leave the product unattended the goods will be returned to the Proprietor’s kitchen. If re-delivery is required a further delivery fee will apply. Re-delivery may not be available on the same day as the original order. If the product has not been delivered within 3 hours the contents will be disposed of due to food health and safety reasons. A new fresh box will be prepared at extra cost to the purchaser.
Products such as boxes and platters will be at the purchaser’s risk from the time of dispatch from the Proprietor's kitchen.
