IMPORTANT NOTE TO THOSE WITH FOOD ALLERGIES AND INTOLERANCES
Due to our current packing facilities and those of our suppliers we cannot guarantee that our products have not come into contact with, or contain traces of other products that are, or contain allergens such as nuts, soy, dairy, egg, bee products etc.
Insect attack and mould
If what you receive from us is being attacked by an insect, please notify us within 48 hours of receipt. Gluten Free Ingredients cannot accept responsibility for an insect infestation if not notified within 48hrs of receipt.
Food grown & stored without herbicide or pesticide additives is sometimes more prone to infestation attack. For example, some moth eggs may find their way into the food during the process from pasture to table. We keep foods susceptible to weevils, moths, etc in a coolroom to prevent any issues like this arising. Despite the best cleanliness standards at our warehouse, these eggs may then hatch in transit to you. The transport companies used are not refrigerated and goods could sit in depots over nights or weekends waiting for next stage of delivery. This could also lead to problems with mould etc particularly in hot and damp conditions. We recommend you seriously consider what you are ordering if delivery time is more than 2-3 days from dispatch.
We recommend that all grains, cereals, flours, pulses, etc are kept very cool and dry, for best protection refrigerated, especially Organic produce. If any infestation of insects occurs, ascertain what it is, and then freeze the produce for at least 3 days. Please do not hesitate to call us with any queries about what type of insect it may be.
If the infestation is extreme, and beyond repair, we will be happy to send out a replacement or refund you if you contact us within 48 hours of receipt.
This website has been put together with a lot of care and hardwork. However, we are human and sometimes make mistakes. We advise you to thoroughly check LIST OF INGREDIENTS and FOOD INTOLERANCES when you order. We also welcome feedback on any aspect of our website to make your shopping experience easier.At all times Gluten Free Ingredients supplys products that are gluten free and/or Organic.
Each state and territory within Australia has its own quarantine laws and lists of permissible plant/food items that can be sent across state boundaries. The onus is on you, the customer, to know and understand these laws and only order what you know can be safely imported from one state into yours. Customers from Western Australia in particular should familiarise themselves with these laws and permitted plant lists.
Quarantine inspectors can and will open boxes that are of concern and will confiscate items that aren’t permissible.
Goods damaged or confiscated by Quarantine or freight companies inspecting in the presence of quarantine inspectors are not the responsibility of Gluten Free Ingredients
Lost or Damaged in Transit
From time to time articles go missing or get damaged in transit – it is rare but it does happen. Nothing will leave Gluten Free Ingredients in a damaged condition as the freight companies would not accept them.
Once goods have left here they are the responsibility of the freight company, not Gluten Free Ingredients but it is worth making enquiries about possible insurance cover if you are placing a large order as freight companies do have varying clauses etc within their policies. For example an article could go missing and turn up a week later but have sat around a warehouse causing goods to be heat damaged. The item is delivered in an unsatisfactory condition but who’s responsible? Gluten Free Ingredients staff will be happy to assist, wherever possible, in the tracking and resolving of these issues but we are not responsible or liable for errors incurred by freight companies.
