What delivery service do you offer?

We have a free delivery service. All orders are usually delivered within two working days. We have an expedited service if you order before 2pm, guaranteeing next-day delivery.

 

What is the latest time I can order for same-day dispatch? 

For same-day dispatch, you should order before noon. We may dispatch on the following working day if we are unusually busy. If you need the stock urgently, it's best to order in advance or select the expedited shipping. Please contact us if you are in desperate need for stock.

 

Where is my order? 

When your order has been completed and prepared for shipping, you will receive an email from DPD saying they have received your order. On the day of delivery, you will receive an email or text message with details of your delivery. Please contact us if you suspect your order is missing or late.

 

What happens if I am not in to receive my delivery with DPD?
DPD will email and send you an SMS so that you can be aware of the delivery with a one-hour time slot; if this doesn't work for you, then you can send one of the 6000 local shops that can take your delivery. However, if you choose this option, we strongly recommend collecting as fast as possible because the parcels can be pretty large and it can be an inconvenience for the shop you choose.

 

My order has been delivered and damaged; what do I do?

If your order arrives damaged, here's what you need to do:

 

For Parcels:

• If the parcel is re-taped with DPD tape, please reject the parcel.

• Capture clear photos of the parcel, the damage, and the shipping label.

• Contact us immediately at info@worldofceres.com with the photos and details.

 

For Pallets:

• If the damage is minimal, send us the photos, and we will send a replacement.

• Capture clear photos of the pallet, the damage, and the shipping label.

• If the severe damage affects the entire shipment, reject the pallet.

• Contact us immediately at info@worldofceres.com with the photos and details.

 

Do I need to give you my mobile number and email address? 

Yes, because it allows us to give the courier accurate contact information so that you can be kept up to date with your delivery.

 

Can I order samples?

Yes, We're pleased to offer free samples exclusively to commercial food businesses within the U.K. To order your samples, visit /samples/.

 

Do you ship Internationally?

What's the process if my order is delivered with a pallet courier?

We ensure a swift delivery with our standard next-day service before noon for pallet-delivered goods. Should you miss the delivery, please know that the haulier's surcharge will be passed on to you.

 

Will the driver pack away my delivery?

With pallet deliveries, the drivers will try to get your goods as close to your property as possible. If they can bring it even closer or inside, consider it a kind gesture on their part but not standard practice.

 

Do you offer any discounts?
