Delivery Schedule We endeavor to ship your order within 1 business day - UK delivery is normally within 1 to 5 business days. International orders are generally received in under 7 days.
Please note: Business days are defined as Monday-Friday 8am-6pm. Next Day delivery options are only possible if we receive your order before 4pm (excluding some Fruits, Vegetables and Sweets which are only despatched on Tuesdays). If there is any doubt - feel free to telephone us.
Although most EU packets are delivered in 2-3 days we cannot guarantee this timeframe in all countries. If buying Fruit and Vegetables from us, outside the UK, we recommend you try a small sample to satisfy yourself that it makes it in good time before placing larger orders. We do not guarantee freshness of Fruit and Veg outside the UK. When you place your order you accept that the risk is with yourself and not Spices of India.
Regarding 'Fresh Produce' (Fresh Sweets and Vegetables): Fresh Produce is despatched on Tuesdays for orders received before midnight Monday nights. All Fresh Produce is 'bought to order' - it cannot be cancelled after we have procured them for you.
Where delivery instructions are left, ie without signature, we cannot not be held responsible for any missing goods. For example, if you request leaving in a bin where recyling may happen, or, in an outhouse that could be accessed by 3rd parties. The risk lies with you.
Back Orders In the unlikely event that an item you ordered is not in stock we reserve the right to substitute it with smaller pack sizes, making up the required quantity, and/or another Brand of similar quality. Failing this we will either a) automatically refund the item or, b) if the item(s) represent a major part of your order, we would email you to advise you of the situation, with potential options, and request your advice on how you would like to proceed.
