I need to make a return

At the time of Delivery:

It is essential that you check your delivery is complete when signing to confirm receipt of your order. Henderson Foodservice cannot honour shortage claims if you have signed to confirm your order was complete at the time of delivery.

Our driver will be happy to help you check that your order is complete and that all the items are in the condition you expect. If any items are missing or unacceptable our driver will record the details and uplift the items.

Henderson Foodservice will use this information to ensure you are credited for any items you did not receive or accept.

Once a delivery has been completed we can only accept returns under the following circumstances. To ensure food safety guidelines and to maintain our high standards of customer service we can only permit returns within the time limits below:

  • Fresh Meat & Produce: Returns can only be accepted at time of delivery
