Choukette-General Terms and Conditions of Trade

  1. Our contract with you, the customer

All orders by you, the customer, for supply of goods are subject to these terms and conditions unless varied in writing and signed by both parties. Once an order has been placed your order is considered firm and there will be a contract between us.  The contract will end upon satisfactory receipt of goods.

  1. Food allergies

Our products are made in a busy environment where GLUTEN, EGG, SOYA, MILK, NUTS, PEANUTS, SULPHUR DIOXIDE and other ALLERGENIC ingredients are used. Due to the nature of our food operation, we cannot fully guarantee that any food will be 100% completely free from any allergens. 

Whilst every care has been taken to ensure that the information on the website is accurate, we recommend that you always check the product labels and packaging prior to use or ask a staff member at the store at the time of the collection. Please note that products and their ingredients are subject to change. Although this information is regularly updated, Choukette is unable to accept liability for any incorrect information.

Don’t hesitate to contact us before placing your order if you have any concerns.

We cannot be responsible for any incidents involving personal food allergies.

This may affect the price you pay. You may reject any substitute item and we will refund the amount you have been charged for that substitute. It is our policy to identify any substitute items to you at the time of delivery and give you the opportunity to accept or reject the item at that time.

  1. Cancellations

Under distance selling regulations for non-personalised or non-food items you have the right to cancel your order for any reason within 14 days of placing your order.
