How are Made In Oldstead food boxes delivered?

Food Boxes are delivered in wool insulated chilled boxes by a third-party courier, DPD, between 7.30am - 7.30pm on the day of delivery. 

DPD aim to deliver within a one hour delivery window. Tracking information is provided on the morning of delivery, on rare occasions this may not happen. If you do not receive your Food Box by 6pm on Friday, please do contact us at where a member of our team will be able to assist you.

DPD can deliver to the UK mainland, however, this unfortunately, excludes anywhere in the Scottish Highlands, Islands and Borders as next-day delivery is not available. Excluded postcodes include (DG, TD, AB, DD, IV, KW, PA, PH). We are incredibly sorry for this inconvenience.

If you are not at home when the delivery arrives, DPD will attempt to leave your food box in a safe place. Please help by specifying a cool, dry, safe place that your delivery can be left in the notes section during checkout.

While we aim for Friday delivery of all our food boxes, this cannot be guaranteed.  We work with a third party courier and cannot be held responsible for delays outside of our control.  If delivery cannot be made on Friday, DPD, if able, will attempt to make a Saturday delivery. We will always aim to contact you where possible to let you know and take steps to minimise the delay.

Food box orders may be packaged and sent in more than one delivery. Food box sales are final, non-transferable and non-refundable.
