Please order carefully as we cannot exchange or refund goods due to the perishable nature of the product. We can only cancel and refund your order if it has not yet been shipped. Once your order has left our warehouse we can no longer process a refund. Please see above for information on when we despatch orders as the majority of our orders are despatched the day that the order is received. Please contact customer service as soon as possible if you wish to cancel an order.

What happens if products are received damaged?

Whilst we take great care to pack orders to ensure they are received in perfect condition, in the event your order is damaged whilst in transit, please send photos to hello@cacao.com.au so that we can, at our discretion, arrange either a refund or replacement. Please be aware that we use Express Post to ensure that our products reach you in a short time frame to prevent damage/spoilage of the product. We cannot be held responsible for orders that are not collected from the post office in a timely manner. 

Delivery Policy

We take great care with the shipping of your order to ensure it arrives in optimal condition. We use environmentally friendly heat reflective boxes combined with ice packs for non-refrigerated deliveries all year round.

Throughout the Australian summer we can experience extreme heat waves. In the event the temperature is above 30 °C in Melbourne or at your destination, your order may be held back for a later date of despatch. This is to ensure that the product is not compromised on reaching its destination. In the event this happens, we will be in contact to advise when the expected despatch date will be. 

Cacao cannot be held responsible for conditions beyond our control such as severe weather or service interruptions. Cacao takes no responsibility for melted product in remote destinations, however we take all measures to ensure this does not happen. 

DISCLAIMER: We believe that we have aligned ourselves with excellent delivery partners but there may be times when, despite their best efforts, parcels are delayed in the delivery process. We will always work with our delivery partners to ensure the prompt arrival of your products.
