What if I’m not happy with the seafood you sent me?

Please send us an email at support@sanfordandsons.co.nz no later than three days after the date you received the Box. Our ‘Care you can taste’ guarantee means we are 100% committed to making it right. 

How does it stay cold and fresh and beautiful?

Not home to receive the delivery? No problem – We pack your seafood in specially designed Chilltainers, with re-usable ice packs, that will keep your box chilled under 5 °C for at least 8 hours. 


Is there a deadline for placing an order?

We want to make fresh seafood as accessible as possible. 

Please place your order at least 48 hours before your desired delivery date.

What if by chance a certain product isn’t available?

One of the benefits of our boxes is that they are designed with choice in mind so we can select the freshest fish available – however if it does occur, we will substitute with something equally as delicious. As always our ‘Care you can taste’ guarantee ensures if you’re not happy we will make it right.
