Q: Can I return the poly boxes and chiller blocks
A: Of course. Simply leave out your poly boxes and chiller blocks and they will be collected by your driver when they make your next delivery. Please note that we cannot accept the return of the meal packaging as this is a health and safety hazard for the drivers and Lavana Wholefoods staff.
Q: When do I need to order by?
A: Orders must be placed by midnight Wednesday to receive your meals the following week. This is so that we can order the correct amount of produce to ensure you receive the highest quality and freshest ingredients, and to minimise wastage.
Q: How do I heat my meals?
A: All meals come with microwave heating instructions on your weekly menu. You can also heat your meals out of their packaging in the oven or on the stove top.
Q: What happens if I need to cancel my order?
A: If you have placed your order and need to cancel it BEFORE the midnight Wednesday cut off, please email us and we will refund your money in full. If however it is AFTER midnight on Wednesday unfortunately fresh produce will have already been ordered and purchased so we will not be able to refund your money.
Q: What happens if I need to alter my order?
A: If you have placed your order and need to alter it BEFORE midnight on Wednesday please send through an email and we can make the necessary changes. If however you need to make adjustments to your order AFTER midnight on Wednesday we cannot guarantee that we can do so. Please email us and we can work together to come up with a solution.
