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 all year round.

Throughout the Australian summer we can experience extreme heat waves. In the event the temperature is above 30 °C either in Melbourne or at your destination, orders will not be despatched.  This is 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. 

Cacao takes no responsibility for melted product in remote destinations, however we take all measures to ensure this does not happen. 

Contact us on 1300 258 828 from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am – 5pm AEST if you require any special delivery requirements.
