Frozen and Fresh products Shipping

We ship frozen products and fresh products with German Parcel Service (DPD), DHL or UPS.

To ensure that every frozen product arrives safely and optimally chilled, all frozen products are carefully packed by hand in a high-quality, reusable Styrofoam box. For perfect cooling, shipping is done with icepack. This ensures a complete continuation of the cold chain up to your home.

Frozen goods are delivered only within Germany. Delivery to DPD Paketschops or DHL Packstations is not possible.

We will inform you about the shipment of the parcel by e-mail, so that you may instruct neighbors or other persons to accept it.

As a customer, you are obliged to guarantee acceptance of your ordered goods during this period - either by you personally or possibly by a neighbor.
