Such suspension shall not relieve you from your obligation to pay any fees owed to us.

Return Policy

If you are dissatisfied with any Product you have received in your box, please contact us at chef@makegoodfood.ca within five (5) days of receiving your order. We will provide a Credit (as defined below) to your Goodfood Account for the Products you are not satisfied with. We may require you keep the item or provide photographic documentation of the item you are dissatisfied with.

You are responsible for inspecting items upon their delivery for any damage or other issues including but not limited to the freshness of the Products you receive. Ingredients should be delivered to you in a cool and refrigerated condition, below 4°C. Although unlikely, if you have any reason to believe that a Product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, please contact us immediately at chef@makegoodfood.ca.

Delivery

We do not currently deliver meal ingredients to every region in Canada. You can find out if we ship to your area by signing up and you will be notified once we start shipping to your specified address.

Goodfood generally uses third party services for shipping and therefore all Products purchased are made pursuant to a shipment contract whereby the title to and the risk of loss of such products passes to you upon delivery of the products to you. Following the delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are at your own risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the Products. Goodfood is not responsible or liable for any action(s) or inaction(s) of such third parties and/or its agents, and shall not be liable for any delay or loss of any kind, which occurs while a shipment is in custody or control of a third party.

Shipping times and dates are estimates and actuals may vary due to weather conditions and other factors, some of which may be outside of our control. If there are events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver the Products to you on your scheduled delivery day, we will attempt to deliver your Products on the following day. In the event that we remain unable to deliver your Products on the day which follows your original scheduled delivery day, we will issue you a Credit for the purchase price of that delivery. You are responsible for the purchase price of the Products if we are unable to make your delivery at your confirmed address at the specified time due to reasons caused by you.

We consider the Products delivered when the third party courier service arrives, and surrenders custody of the Products in accordance with the delivery instructions you have specified in your Goodfood Account. We will presume that any individual present at the location specified in the delivery instructions is authorized to receive the delivery on your behalf. If there is no individual present at the location specified in the delivery instructions we will leave the package unattended at the address or location you have specified. You are responsible for insuring the clarity and completeness of the delivery instructions provided to us.

You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon their delivery to you. You are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should use a thermometer to confirm that the internal temperature of any meat, poultry, fish, seafood or other perishable ingredients are in cool and refrigerated condition, below 4°C. Should the Products not be fresh upon their delivery to you, please let us know and we will handle the matter in accordance with our return policy.

Our boxes include insulated liners and iced gel packs that keep your ingredients cold and fresh for up to 24 hours after your delivery arrives. You are responsible for the Products as of the moment when the courier gives up custody of the Products in accordance with the instructions in your Goodfood Account. You are responsible for a Product degradation as a result of any events (including the passage of time) after the delivery of the Products. Please keep in mind season and temperatures in your area at the time of delivery and plan deliveries and storage accordingly.

Upon reception and following inspection of any delivered Products, you must immediately refrigerate all perishable items and are responsible for following refrigeration, food safety, safe food handling instructions and food consumption recommendations from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Quebec (MAPAQ) (or in Ontario, Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, OMAFRA) & Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to reduce risks of foodborne illnesses including such recommendation for at-risk groups (i.e. for pregnant women, young children, elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems). You should use a food thermometer to ensure that all meat, poultry, fish, seafood and other applicable items are cooked at recommended internal temperatures.

We may from time to time designate certain locations as “pick-up points” where you can collect the Products. Should you chose to receive your Products at a pick-up point, we will consider the products delivered when they are made available to you for pick-up at the specified pick-up point. You are responsible for collecting your Products within the timeframe specified in your shipping confirmation.

Special Offers

We may occasionally offer new or existing customers a promotional offer in connection with their use or potential use of the Services or the purchase of Products (each a “Special Offer”). The terms of a Special Offer shall be contained or otherwise transmitted therewith and otherwise governed accordingly. From time to time, a Special Offer may consist of a promotion for free meal(s) upon the opening of Goodfood Account or re-subscribing to a Subscription (a “Free Meal Special Offer”).

Should you take advantage of a Free Meal Special Offer, and such Free Meal Special Offer ends, you acknowledge and agree that we (or our third-party payment processor) will begin billing your designated payment method on a recurring basis for your Subscription (plus any applicable taxes) for as long as your Subscription continues, unless you cancel your Subscription prior to the end of the Free Meal Special Offer. Instructions for canceling your Subscription are described in herein. Please note that you may not receive a notice from us that your free meal special offer has ended or that the fully paid portion of your Subscription has begun.

Account Credits

As a result of certain situations, we may issue you credits of a promotional value that will be automatically applied to future purchases made by way of your Goodfood Account or otherwise applied to your Subscription, as applicable (the “Credits”). Credits, are promotional in nature, are not transferable, may only be redeemed as instructed by us and are not exchangeable for cash or other property.

Credits only remain available if you maintain both an active Goodfood Account and an active Subscription. Cancelling your Subscription or Goodfood Account will result in the cancellation of your Credits. You may only redeem Credits after they are applied to your Goodfood Account. Any decision made by us regarding a dispute as to your Credit balance is final.

Termination

You may cancel your Goodfood Account or your Subscription at any time by contacting our Member Happiness Team either via our live chat, by email (chef@makegoodfood.ca) or by phone at 1-855-515-5191 (Mon-Fri 8AM-8PM, Sat-Sun 9AM-5PM).
