Orders Outside the London Van Delivery Area

Orders are delivered on pallets and delivery is made to the door of the premises. It is not possible to request that delivery drivers unpack the pallet or that they remove the pallet or packaging.

Shortages and Damages *PLEASE NOTE*

The Company will only accept liability for:

a. Signed delivery as DAMAGED or SHORTAGES

b. If possible take photographs with a digital camera and e-mail them to

c. Return any damaged items to the driver, or keep them to be collected another day

d. Report the credit request to Empire Bespoke Foods Head Office within 1day of the date of delivery

e. Make a note of the reference number given to you, if reporting the request by phone

If you are requesting a credit for any other reason, you should make the request in writing to Empire Bespoke Foods within 24 hours of date of delivery for ambient goods. Any verbal request for credit should be followed up in writing along with the name of the person you spoke to.

The reason that we impose the above conditions is that we can only claim for damages from our transporters within a 24 hour period.  This has a direct impact on our costs and in turn to you; your cooperation is therefore extremely important. If you do make a credit request and have not signed the delivery note as “damaged” credits will be refused.

Prices and Foreign Exchange

As a significant proportion of the goods we supply are imported, their prices are subject to factors beyond our control in the Foreign Exchange Market. Empire Bespoke Foods reserves the right to change the prices shown on this website without notice.

Credit Accounts

Please note that unless otherwise stated, your account will be pro-forma. This means that payment must be made before goods are dispatched or, if agreed, on receipt of the goods. Payment can be made by credit or debit card, BACs transfer or cheque prior to dispatch of the goods.

If you have an agreed credit account with Empire Bespoke Foods, settlement of all invoices must be made as per agreed payment terms. Empire Bespoke Foods reserves the right to amend the terms of any credit account (including the credit limit) you have at any time at its absolute discretion.  If you exceed, or the order to be delivered to you will cause you to exceed, your agreed credit limit, or if you have invoices outside of agreed payment terms, Empire Bespoke Foods may decline to supply you until the excess amount over your credit limit has been cleared or overdue invoices have been paid.
