THE SPECIAL CARE WE TAKE
Gourmet Direct only works with trusted suppliers with established reputations for quality in New Zealand (and often International) food market.
Gourmet Direct chilled or frozen meat products are already aged and vacuum packed for maximum flavour, texture and shelf life. Each product is produced to strict specification delivering you consistently stunning product every time.
Every order is packed by hand with recyclable packaging including reusable gel ice-packs to ensure your package travels safely with the least possible temperature fluctuation. We deliver Nationwide within New Zealand 5 days a week, Tuesday to Saturday. We regret that owing to MPI regulations, we are unable to send meat products overseas.
We understand things change – more people coming for dinner? If you need to change your order, please call us as soon as you can on 0800 737 800 and we will do our very best to make the required changes to your order or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or both if its urgent!
We are often unable to cancel your order after 1pm on the day of dispatch in the months of January through November and especially during peak times. (Christmas, Easter. Level 3 or 4 COVID lockdowns). Once we cancel your order, any charges made against your card will be refunded within 24 hours.
Our freight rates within the North Island are $15.00. South Island freight is $28.00 per order on an overnight service.
All orders over $200 in product value are eligible for free freight. Use Code FF200 to remove the freight. This applies to all orders, all over New Zealand.
WHAT PRODUCTS ARE SUPPLIED FRESH?
We supply most of our products fresh and sometimes chilled but some products are supplied frozen for Health and Safety purposes.
WHY ARE SOME PRODUCTS FROZEN?
Our frozen products are snap frozen to swiftly seal in the natural properties of the meat guaranteeing your product defrosts in mint condition. Slow freezing in your domestic freezer can dry and stress meat by comparison. Our products are frozen freshly processed so as to minimize the chances of bacteria development.
WHAT DOES THE USE BY DATE MEAN ON FROZEN PRODUCTS?
Your frozen product will arrive with it’s fresh-cut Use By date displayed. This date refers to its CHILLED state shelf life and may be well before the date of delivery. This is normal. Once the product freezes down it takes on a new lease of shelf-life! Industry regulations mean that most NZ food products display a Use By date which refers to their pre-frozen state. (Please contact Customer Services on Freephone 0800 737 800 for further explanation).
