We dispatch fresh and chilled food across Europe, we dispatch fresh and chilled food only on a Monday and Tuesday, so that means all fresh & chilled food orders must be placed before 5pm Saturday, to be dispatched on Monday and Tuesday, to be delivered by Friday on that same week. We do this to guarantee same week delivery and that you receive the freshest food possible and still chilled upon arrival.

Any fresh meat or bread ordered for delivery on the European mainland, you must select express delivery. We will not send any fresh meat or bread on standard delivery across the European mainland. If you the customer orders any cured or cooked meat, cheese or butter for standard delivery, we at the British Food Store will not be held responsibility for these products. We at the British Food Store will only take full responsibility for ambient non chilled food on standard delivery and fresh chilled food on express delivery

Save Money on Shipping Tip: For large fresh and ambient food orders, split the order. Put your fresh meat and bread on express delivery by air and everything else on standard delivery by road

If your chilled food delivery was not delivered by Thursday morning, please contact us at immediately and we will contact DHL to make sure you get your delivery by Friday or food will spoil by Monday. We at The British Food Store will track express chilled deliveries to Europe, but we cannot guarantee to follow up on every delivery to make sure every parcel is delivered on time. The customer need to take ownership of their own chilled food delivery and be proactive to contact us if their delivery did not arrive on time. 

At The British Food Store we do not store fresh meat or bread. When you the customer place an order for fresh bread, dairy or from our butcher counter, we contact our farmers, butchers and bakers to prepare this food for the freshest delivery for you.

When shipping chilled food, we use state of the art chilled packaging. This chilled packaging keeps food chilled up to 5 during transit and even longer during the winter months.

Ambient none chilled fresh food is dispatched Monday to Friday. We do not dispatch or deliver on weekends or public holiday’s

Multipack and sharing bags of crisps and snacks will now weigh 500g each for express shipping across Europe and shipping outside of Europe. This is due to the rise in fuel costs because crisps and snacks are bulky items and need larger boxes to transport. This does not affect standard shipping customers across Europe.

The British Food Store are delighted to use DHL as our delivery partner. DHL has over 100 years experience in delivering parcels around the world. The British Food Store do not profit from deliveries, so what DHL charge us we pass on the charge to the purchaser at no extra charge. When placing an order with The British Food Store, we will package, label and dispatch the order to DHL. Once the parcel reaches DHL sorting warehouse and ready for dispatch, DHL will then send an email from the email provided to us to inform the receiver of delivery day and time. If the purchaser do not receive an email please contact us at and we will send the tracking number to you. Any problems with deliveries in Europe, The British Food Store will do everything we can fix or sort any issues with deliveries. Unfortunately due to language barriers and time zones we strongly recommend that the receiver contact their local DHL office to assist in any delivery problems, this is a much faster process rather than The British Food Store contacting DHL in Dublin to contact DHL in a different country, that could take days back and forward corresponding and this would not be ideal when chilled food is been delivered.

Any failed deliveries through no fault of our own or through no fault of DHL for example, wrong address given, refused delivery by the recipient or no one available to receive the package, the purchaser is liable for delivery charges. Any failed deliveries when it is our fault or the fault of DHL, we at The British Food Store will refund any ambient or none chilled products. Any failed deliveries through no fault of our own or UPS, All Ireland Foods do not refund chilled food for example, fresh meat, dairy or bakery. The British Food Store will except returns on ambient or none chilled products. The British Food Store will not except returns on chilled food for example, fresh meat, dairy, bread, cakes and fruit & vegetables.
