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 in Melbourne or at your destination and your order is not travelling refrigerated, 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.
