Hot Weather Shipping

Since weather and temperature are significant factors in shipping chocolates, we can not guarantee 100% that the chocolates reach their destination via Regular Posts without suffering or deteriorating due to the heat of the season. Therefore, during the summer (June 1 – September 15), these following shipping methods are applied for web orders:

  • Factory Pick-up:  You can pick up your order at our Head Office/ Factory location at 88 E 7th Ave, Vancouver, BC. 
  • Overnight Priority Shipping Service: Regular and Express Shipping are not available. Ice packs will be added to orders at no charge.

  • We recommend against shipping to PO or community boxes. For orders shipped to PO or community boxes, the condition of the order on arrival is on buyer’s risks, we cannot guarantee the condition of the products during hot weather.
