HEALTH AND SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE CONCERN.
Our fulfilment centre, UrbanFoods, sources the best and highest quality ingredients from local farmers and markets that meet the abovementioned quality standards.
Our delivery vehicles follow a tight cold chain protocol to ensure you receive produce in the best condition. Our quality packaging further ensures food is delivered fresh to your front door.
We recognise the importance of making sure the produce delivered to your door abides by the World Health Organisation’s recommendations of limited contact to reduce the risk of viral transmission.
OUR SERVICE WILL CONTINUE.
We use our own delivery vehicles. This means we can control implementation of this high standard of transmission protocol. We will continue to provide you with the high quality of service and products you are accustomed to.
