Delivery

Please select your preferred delivery day and time during check out. Next working day delivery is available if ordered before 1pm. We do not currently deliver on Sundays or Mondays.

Our courier is DPD. Daylesford Organic Ltd and its employees cannot be held responsible for our courier’s failure to deliver to the specified time due to adverse weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control. However, in these instances, we will make our best efforts to correct the problem.

DPD offer a ‘predict’ delivery service whereby they inform customers of a one-hour delivery window notified by SMS and/or email – so you don’t have to wait in all day. Additionally, you can watch the progress of your delivery driver on a real-time map. If your plans change and you’re not able to sign for your order, DPD offer a range of ‘in flight’ options such as delivering to a neighbour, leaving the parcel in a safe place, and collecting your parcel from a local shop.

Orders containing both fresh produce and dry goods (packaged produce, condiments, tins and drinks) will be dispatched from separate locations, meaning you will receive two separate deliveries. DPD will notify you of both deliveries using their ‘predict’ delivery service.

In the event that we are unable to meet estimated dispatch dates because of exceptional circumstances, we will contact you via phone and email with a revised estimated dispatch date.

Delivery Rates: 

For UK mainland addresses, a single delivery of items will be charged at £6.95 for delivery before 6pm.

PACKAGED LIGHTLY

Since we opened our doors in 2002 we have never given away a plastic carrier bag and you have always been able to choose unpackaged produce. When packaging is needed, we choose materials that are likely to be recycled or reused.

Cardboard: up to 90% FSC-certified recycled, printed with water-based inks, we have reduced the cardboard in our boxes by 40% this year. Please recycle.

Shredded wood: FSC-certified spruce from Britain and Sweden. Please dispose of with garden waste, compost or reuse as pet bedding and kindling.

Biodegradable loose fill: our hampers are packed with a light, residue-free, water-soluble and compostable filler made entirely from plants. Please dissolve in water or compost.

Sheep wool insulation: separate fleece from bag, the wool can be recycled with textiles, composted or reused in the garden in hanging baskets, protecting plants from frost and keeping slugs at bay. Please recycle paper bag. Plastic bags can be recycled with carrier bags and films.

Non-toxic gel packs: not currently recycled but reusable. Perfect for lunchboxes, picnics and first aid.

Paper straps: replacing plastic with paper removes 25 miles of plastic from the planet every year, please recycle.

Sugar cane food trays and bowls: 100% recycled plant fibres, please recycle. Drinking straws: innovative 100% wheat straw, please compost.
