Just like in supermarkets, prices for Products change from time to time and we do not provide any notice of these changes. Subject to these Terms, once we have accepted your Order, we will not change any prices that apply to the Products in that Order.
If Products that you have ordered are not available and we have not provided you with a substitute, or the Product is a weight-ranged product and is supplied significantly below the maximum weight, then we will provide you with a refund or credit within 3-5 business days, to your original payment method, or by alternative means, to the value of the Products (excluding other Fees) that were not supplied to you.

We will provide you with a substitute Product if you have elected for us to do so:
a) when the Products you have selected are not available; or
b) if we are not able to supply to you the Products that you have selected.
We aim to select substitute Products that are of similar value and quality, but we are under no obligation to do so and reserve the right not to provide you with substitute Products even if a suitable substitute product is available.

Where a Product that you have selected is substituted with another Product, we cannot ensure that that substitute Product caters to your specific dietary requirements, including allergies. Please read the labels of each Product for dietary and allergy information.
If there are items missing from your delivery or collection, then you should check the receipt that we provided to you to determine if the missing Product is marked as out of stock. If so, you will not have been charged for this Product.
