Cacao takes no responsibility for melted product in remote destinations, however we take all measures to ensure this does not happen. We take great care with the shipping of your order to ensure that it arrives in optimal condition. To ensure that your order does not get too hot, we use a combination of polystyrene boxes combined with ice packs (year round).
Orders will not be despatched when the weather reaches extreme temperatures to ensure that the product is not compromised on reaching its destination. In the event that the order will not be despatched, we will be in contact to advise when the expected despatch date will be.
