High quality produce is sourced daily so that we can offer our customers the freshest produce. We only purchase and supply first grade produce ensuring the highest quality possible.
Our produce is stored in a cold room and delivered to you as fresh as possible in a refrigerated delivery van so the cold chain process is not broken from the farm straight to your home.
Please ensure that you check your order with our delivery personal and any shortages will be noted on your delivery invoice. If we do not deliver an item on your order we will notify you via email, we usually credit your Island Fresh account with points and request that you let us know if you prefer that the item be delivered when available. You may also create a Ticket to query any shortages.
Try out our new feature by clicking on the "Notify Me" when available button, and we'll send you an email as soon it's restocked!
Sell-by date is marked on a perishable product indicating the recommended time by which it should be sold.
