inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because

4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on
our website are for illustrative purposes only. As we are sure you will be aware,
every cut of meat is unique; we cannot guarantee that the images on our website
accurately reflect the colour, tone, shape, marbling etc. of the goods. Your product
may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 Fixed Price Products. Where goods are sold at a fixed price per item (“Fixed

time you confirm your order subject only to any typographical or technical error for
which we will not be liable.

(or other appropriate unit of measurement) (“Products Sold by Weight”) the price
will be as quoted on the website at the time you confirm your order subject only to
any typographical or technical error for which we will not be liable. The price you
will be charged is the price for the actual weight you receive. Any estimated weight
guide on the website is merely to assist your planning and help you to identify the
goods which meet your requirements. In the event that there is a change in the
price/kg between the time you confirmed your order and the time the item is
weighed and priced by us, the price you will be charged will be the price at the time
you confirmed your order.
4.4 Preparation services. For certain products we may offer preparation services. For
example, you will be able to request on the website whether you would like a rack
of lamb to be cut in to cutlets or a gammon joint to be skinned. Any applicable
surcharge will be detailed on the website. For Products Sold by Weight, the price
of these goods will be calculated based on the weight of that good before the

reserve the right to apply a surcharge for any special preparation services we do
provide; we will notify you before dispatch of your order to inform you that such a
charge may be applied. If we are unable to fulfil these requests we will contact you
before dispatching your order to explain the situation and check that you would like

5.1 If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered or cancel an order
please contact us by phone or e-mail using the contact details above. You will not
be able to amend or cancel and order once the products have been dispatched for
delivery (please see clause 8.2 for further details). If the order has not yet been

possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the
timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your
requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the

cancel your order, and you will be liable for the price of the products.
6. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
6.1 Changes to the products and these terms. Products are presented subject to
availability. In the event that any goods that you order are unavailable, we may
offer a reasonable substitute and this may affect the price you pay. We may limit
the quantities of goods (particularly goods on special offer) supplied to any one
customer if, in our opinion, the quantity ordered jeopardises availability for other
6.2 Substitutes to Fixed Price Products. Where a substitute item is offered in place
of a Fixed Price Product, the price charged for that substitute item (if accepted) will
be the price of the substitute item at such time the item is substituted.
6.3 Substitutes to Products Sold by Weight. Where a substitute product is offered
in place of a Product Sold by Weight and this substitute item is a different product
(for example, chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs), then the price charged for
that substitute product (if accepted) will be the price of the substitute product
applicable at such time it is substituted. However, where the substitute item is the
same as the product you originally ordered, but in a different quantity or weight (for
example, you are substituted 12 pork sausages instead of the 18 pork sausages
that you ordered), then the price charged for that substitute product (if accepted)
will be the price payable for the substitute quantity or weight at such time you
placed your order.
6.4 Your right to reject substitute products. You may reject any substitute product
and we will refund the amount you have been charged for that substitute. It is our
policy to identify any substitute items to you in advance of dispatch. In these
circumstances, we will contact you using the contact details provide to give you the
opportunity to accept or reject the item before dispatch. If, having used all
reasonable endeavours, we have been unable to contact you before dispatch, you
will not have the right to reject substitute products.
7. PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS

separate charge. Any delivery charge added to your order will be dependent upon
the value of the order, the time and date of delivery and your delivery address. We
may vary our delivery charges from time to time.

you placed your order. The date of delivery will be as specified by us to you when
we confirm dispatch of your order (the “Delivery Date”).
7.3 Time of delivery. On or before the Delivery Date we will contact you (whether by
sending you an SMS message or some other form of communication) providing an
estimated delivery time. At this time you will have the option to:

(b) arrange delivery to a neighbour;
(c) give instructions to leave the products in a designated safe place on your

you placed your order. Unless you have instructed otherwise, we will not leave the
products unattended at your address.
7.4 Whilst we will make every reasonable effort to deliver your products safely and in
accordance with your delivery instructions, we will not be liable for any delay,
damage or loss as a result of complying with these instructions. We will usually
only make deliveries when an appropriate person is able to receive the delivery. In
the event that you instruct us to leave a delivery unattended at your address, we
shall not be liable for any loss or damage to the products which may arise as a
result of the products being left unattended. This includes (without limitation) loss
or damage caused by theft, contamination or any change in temperature to the
products where they need to be kept chilled or frozen.
7.5 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. Due to the perishable
nature of the products, we are not able to redeliver once delivery has been
attempted (in accordance with your instructions). In the event of an unsuccessful
delivery attempt we are entitled to charge you in full for an amount equal to the
price of the products contained in your order and the cost of delivery.
7.6 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the
products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as
soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of
the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event.
7.7 Collection by you. If you have asked to collect the products from our premises,
you can collect them from us at or after the agreed time for collection during our
working hours (which are available on our website). Please call us in advance if
you are in any doubt as to our opening and closing times. If you fail to collect the
products within 48 hours of the agreed time for collection, we shall be entitled to
re-sell the products (where possible) and/or charge you in full for an amount equal
to the price of the products contained in your order. If we are able to re-sell the
products, it is our policy to provide a refund for those products re-sold or (if less)
the amount that the product is re-sold for.

goods late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any goods then you may treat the
contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:

(b) we should have known that delivery within the delivery deadline was
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery
deadline was essential.
7.9 Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at
an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 7.8, you can
give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat
the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
7.10 Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at
an end for late delivery under clause 7.8 or clause 7.9, you can cancel your order
for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can
reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting
them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums
you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery.
7.11 When you become responsible for the goods. A product will be your
responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us (or
otherwise in accordance with your delivery instructions) or you collect it from us.

suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use
reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that
is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will
happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might
happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
11.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be
unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our

contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not
prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a
