Just Be Cooking generally uses third party services for shipping and therefore all Products purchased are made pursuant to a shipping 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. Just Be Cooking 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 actual delivery times may vary due to weather conditions and other factors, some of which may be outside of our control(“Force Majeure”). 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 the following day. In the event that we remain unable to deliver your Products on the day which follows your originally scheduled delivery day, we will issue you a credit for the purchase price of that order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are responsible for the total value of your order if we are unable to complete the delivery at your confirmed address at the specified day 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. We will presume that any individual present at the location is authorized to receive the delivery on your behalf. If there is no one present at the address specified in the delivery instructions we will leave the package unattended at the address you have specified.
You are responsible for inspecting all Products received for any damage or other issues upon their delivery to you. You are 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.
If your order is delivered in boxes, those include insulated liners and dry ice packs that keep your ingredients cool and fresh for up to 24 hours after delivery. However, you are responsible for the Products as of the moment when the courier gives up custody of the Products. 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 the season and temperatures in your area at the time of delivery and plan deliveries and storage accordingly. You are responsible for the Products as of the moment the courier delivers the Products to the address indicated on your order. Please make sure there is someone to attend to the deliveries and store the Product accordingly, upon delivery.
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, 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., 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.
Please note that Just Be Cooking does not make deliveries on Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years.
