Do I have to be at home to receive my delivery?

No, not at all. We understand the need for flexibility in receiving your fresh meat order. To ensure the best delivery experience, we instruct our couriers to leave your order in a safe place if you're not available. Here's what you need to know:

  • If you think you might be out when your delivery arrives, you need to include your safe place or the details of a preferred neighbour in the "Delivery Details" box at checkout. If you do not included "Delivery Details" with your order, DPD will leave your delivery on your doorstep.

  • Ensure that the safe place you choose is protected from the elements and is guarded from public view to avoid damage and theft.

  • If including a preferred neighbour, please let us know their Name and House Number in the "Delivery Details" box at checkout. The neighbour's house must be next door, and they should be aware that you’re sharing their information for this delivery.

  • If you have any further specific delivery requirements, please add this to your order notes when you check out.

  • You can also arrange delivery to your workplace if that's more convenient, and because we vacuum pack all your produced and pack into chilled packaging, your meat will stay nice and fresh until you get home and pop it in the fridge or freezer.

Note: While our goal is to honour your preferences whenever possible, we can't always guarantee that our carriers will be able to meet their delivery instructions under all circumstances.

Important: Post-Delivery Considerations

Once your parcel is delivered to the specified location, it becomes your responsibility. We understand that unexpected situations can arise, but please be aware that stolen deliveries are beyond our control, and we cannot be held responsible for such occurrences. We advise you to take necessary precautions to ensure the security of your delivered items.

When will my order arrive?

Your order will arrive before 12PM on your specific delivery day, which you choose during check out. You will be emailed/text your one hour window by DPD on the morning of your delivery. 

If there are any issues and we cannot fulfil your order on your selected date, a member of the True Bites Team will email you to discuss new arrangements.

On the rare occasion our carriers aren't able to meet their delivery demands on a specific day, and your order is returned to the depot, we have their assurances that your delivery will be fulfilled by 8AM the following day. 

How will my order be packed?

All our products are prepared fresh by experienced butchers, and are individually packed and sealed to ensure maximum freshness. Your order is then hand picked and packed into eco-friendly, insulated packaging with wool liners and specialist gel ice packs, to ensure the optimum temperature during transit. A seamless trip from us to your kitchen.

Reusable ice packs are added to make sure your order arrives safe and remains within refrigerated temperatures during transit.
