Allergen Alert

Although we take great care to separate and pack all products carefully, the food sold in our stores may have been stored with other products that contains allergens, traces of allergens or bi-products of the following: peanuts, nuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, seeds, soybeans and soy products, egg, pollen and bee products, preservatives, gluten and cereals containing gluten, wheat, rye, barley oats, spelt, dairy, fish, crustacea, and other products that may behave as allergens to certain people.

Also, where possible, we have tried to ascertain with our manufacturers that proper segregation, hygiene and cleaning procedures are in place to prevent accidental cross-contamination. Unfortunately, these things are beyond our control as much as we try to minimise them.

No allergen or nutritional information on our website should ever be considered a guarantee, but simply a best faith effort to serve our customers.

Refund Policy

We strive to ensure all our customers are 100% satisfied with our products and service so please let us know within 48 hours of completing your order if you have received a damaged product or incorrect item.

We will always aim to refund the amount of the product or replace it in your next order and are happy to resolve any issues with you. We will not refund purchases of food where you have changed your mind or purchased the incorrect item.

Exchanges

As we sell bulk food and most of our items are not conventionally packaged it is often hard for us to offer you an exchange on an item.  Please contact us and we will let you know if there is anything we are able to do to assist you in your request.

You will be responsible for the cost of freight when sending back the goods you wish to exchange.

Packaging

The Source Bulk Foods is passionate about the environment. As we sell bulk food and goods please be aware that most of our items are not conventionally packaged.


Products for delivery are packed in biodegradable and compostable unbleached Eco paper bags made from sustainably sourced materials. The bags are lined with a 100% plant based film (PLA) which is made from natural starch derived from plants such as corn and sugar cane.


Our product bags have a tin-tie close, so no sticky tape is needed to seal the bags. The bags can be re-used for lunch boxes or storage before final compost. To compost the bags remove the tin tie first. You can reuse the tin-tie in the kitchen.

Wherever possible we try to minimise waste and the use of plastic. However when sending items across Ireland it is also important that your goods arrive safely. When necessary we also use a compostable recycled cardboard ‘bubble’ wrap; products are then packed into cardboard boxes made from recycled materials.

The only exception to compostable packaging in our online deliveries is our cleaning liquids and some personal care products, these are sent in a recyclable or reusable plastic container. This is for safety, rather than having glass in the bathroom.  We send our honey, cooking liquids and oils in glass jars/bottles.

By ordering on this site you agree to have us pack the goods the best way we see fit. We are always striving to reduce our waste and footprint as well as continually improving the way we do things.

Out Of Stock Items

We do our best to make sure our website reflects the products that are in stock, but since stock levels are constantly changing and there may be unforeseen delays from suppliers, sometimes the product you order may not be available. If this is the case we will contact you and offer an alternative or a refund on that particular product or ask you if you wish to wait for your order to be sent once the product is received.

We apologise if this happens and appreciate your understanding.

Missing Items

If an item is missing from your order and you have not been notified that it is out of stock please notify us within 48 hours.  You will need to email a copy or image of your invoice for the funds to be credited to your account for your next purchase or before a full refund is offered. Please ensure to check your order against the invoice as soon as your order arrives.


We cannot issue refunds, replacements or store credits for items missing or damaged if more than 48 hours has lapsed after your order was delivered.

Delivery

Anyone at the delivery address that receives the order will be presumed by The Source Bulk Foods to be authorised to receive the goods. Please ensure accurate delivery address is provided, we do not take any responsibility for damage or loss of your order due providing the incorrect address.

As we use a third party courier company please understand that some issues regarding delivery are out of our control. We cannot confirm exactly when you goods will arrive but we strive to ensure our deliveries are dispatched promptly and will work with you /the courier company where necessary to locate your goods if there is an issue.

Some of our products (like chocolate, LSA etc.) are sensitive to weather.  All our goods are best kept in a cool, dark place. We cannot guarantee the state of the goods throughout the freight process and if the order is not unpacked and stored correctly within a few hours. We do not advise leaving your order outdoors for prolonged periods of time. If you are not home to receive your order we are unable to take any responsibility for theft or spoilage.

All orders that leave no delivery instructions will be left at the front door or in the safest place if no one is home to receive the order or if no one answers the door. We are unable to take any responsibility for the loss or damage of your goods after it has been delivered to your nominated address.

Please make a note in the delivery instructions/comments section if you would like to physically sign for your package and we will ensure the driver will not leave your order until it has been signed for.  Please note that if you request this service and no one is home to sign for the order, we are unable to take responsibility for any items that have perished as a result of being returned to the courier depot.

The Source Bulk Foods assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage occurring by reason of delay or inability to deliver as a result of fire, floods, strikes, accidents, war, embargoes, riot, or from any other cause which is unavoidable or beyond our reasonable control and if delays from such causes do occur our delivery period shall be correspondingly extended.
