Our contract with you

When you place your order with www.thelittlegreenplattercompany.com your order is recognised as an offer which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract.

Acceptance of your order will take place when we confirm that payment has been received on the confirmation page upon completion of your order and/or via subsequent email.   At this point the contract will come into existence between you and us.

If for whatever reason we are unable to accept your order, we will let you know and you will not be charged for your order. Reasons we might not be able to accept your order might be that we have listed the product incorrectly on the website or that we have simply run out of some of our stock.  

Products descriptions and services
Some of our cheeses at thelittegreenplattercompany.com are freshly cut to order by our own hands so weights given on the website are there for guidance. We will always do our utmost to cut to the exact weights as stated but will be unable to offer you a refund where there is a reasonable tolerance from the stated weights on our site.  Our promise to you is that we will always do our best to be as accurate as possible with your order and if we do cut one piece slightly under, we will try to make up the difference with the next in your order.

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours and images of our products that we are selling but they are for illustrative purposes only.  Many of our cheeses, charcuterie and other products are handmade artisan products which, by their nature, vary from batch to batch. Our images and descriptions are there to give you the very best indication of what our products are like before you purchase, however you can expect there to be subtle variations from what is portrayed on this site.

Cheese is a ‘live’ product and will leave us in the best condition, our freshly cut cheeses will be carefully wrapped and delicately boxed for delivery to you. Cheese is a perishable product and will need to be cared for once you receive it.

Please also follow the storage and care instructions on the packaging of any packaged product.

Occasionally there may be information on our site that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, product shipping charges, transit times and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information in the Service or on any related website is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).

For larger bespoke orders, if your order is cancelled three months (or more) before the date booked, we will issue a 50% refund. Unfortunately we do not offer any refunds for cancellations within three months of the event, only date changes if we are told well in advance and have the availability. If an event needs to be cancelled due to Covid-19 related issues the above still applies. Once a booking has moved, we are unable to move again and if cancelled no refund will be given. 

Order Changes
