All orders received by 2pm Monday to Friday will be processed & delivered the next working day unless you have specified a future delivery date in the comments section. All our deliveries are usually completed the following business day before 2:00pm. Whenever your order is time sensitive, why not order a day in advance. Too easy :-) Please take note, our standard delivery zone and our FREE delivery offer for orders over $88 applies to distances 30km from the CBD. Further than this will incur extra delivery fees.

A. We will try to contact you on the mobile number provided with your order. If we can't get in touch with you our redelivery fees will apply. Redelivery on the same day as the original delivery date or on a subsequent date will incur an additional fee of $20.00. Note: Sometimes, it's just not possible to redeliver the same day.
Q. What if the address for delivery is incorrect?
A. If the incorrect delivery address is supplied or if there is no special delivery instruction provided, all ordered product(s) will be returned to Alpen Delicious and we will contact you to arrange redelivery. Redelivery on the same day as the original delivery date will incur an additional fee of $20.00. Redelivery on a subsequent date will also incur a $20.00 charge.

Q. Can I forward order products?
A. Of course you can. We have an ordering system that allows you to order any item for a specified future date. Any dates placed for weekend delivery or public holidays will be delivered the business day beforehand.
Q. What's the difference between Flourless and Gluten Free?
A. The ingredients in all of our flourless products are in fact gluten free. Specifically though, only products that are sealed and produced in special gluten free environments can be called Gluten Free. Although our suppliers take extra precautions to ensure there is no cross contamination from products that contain gluten, or simply from things like flour that can float through the air, it's a possibility that trace amounts can come to rest on the food. This is why Alpen Delicious and the food industry prefers to call the unsealed products Flourless. If you are Hypo Allergic, please, only purchase our sealed Gluten Free products. They're guaranteed to be Gluten Free.
