Receiving your Order
We will deliver to metro Melbourne, Geelong, Peninsula and to many areas within Victoria, but do not deliver to interstate or to international locations. We require a street address for delivery – unfortunately we cannot deliver to a P.O. Box. If you are unsure whether we provide delivery to your area, please email us on orders@ggsfood.com.au or call our Customer Service Team on 03 9525 1299 .
The minimum amount of lead time required for retail orders is two business days. Please call us to discuss you needs, as we will always try to accommodate you if we can.
Our office is open for order processing from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. Our office is closed on the weekend, so all orders requiring delivery on Monday  must be in by 2:30 pm on the previous Friday.
We understand that sometimes you may need your order sooner than 48 hours or delivery at specific times. We will make every effort to accommodate these requests.
All deliveries are made between 6.00 am to 2.00 pm Monday through to Friday. Please note at this point in time we do not deliver on weekends or on public holidays.
Cost of delivery
Orders do not incur a delivery charge if the order is equal to or above the minimum quantity of $150 (+GST). If the order falls below this minimum charge then a freight charge will be added.
Price and Payment
We endeavour to keep our website and prices of Goods updated and accurate, but it is possible that the price may have increased from that published. If that happens, we will not send your order until you have confirmed that you wish to order at the new price.
Banking charges by the receiving bank on payments to us will be borne by us. All other charges relating to payment in a currency other than Australian Dollars will be borne by you.
Any information given by us in relation to exchange rates are approximate only and may vary from time to time.
We accept payment by MasterCard or Visa card. We do not accept payment by Amex or Diners card.
Changing Your Order
Once your Order has been placed, we will immediately start to organise dispatch. This needs to be done to ensure all orders can be fulfilled and delivered in a timely manner. Therefore, it is NOT possible to change or cancel your order once you receive a confirmation receipt of the order. It is not possible to cancel or refund your order because of change of mind.
Receiving your Products
You will receive the products to the delivery address you provide. If necessary, GG’s Gourmet Foods will contact you shortly before delivery to arrange a suitable delivery time and delivery location (where reasonable) at your address. Please ensure that your requested delivery location is free from obstructions and is otherwise in a clean and tidy state to prevent any delivery delays. Our drivers cannot deliver past your front door or reception area. If you order products to be delivered at an office or business location, you authorise any person at the location to receive the order on your behalf. If you order products from a home address, you authorise any person at the location to receive the goods on your behalf.
If you are unsure if you will be available at the delivery address during the delivery hours, we recommend nominating a work address or address of a family member or neighbour who will be present during the delivery hours.
Due to increased concerns over COVID-19 our drivers will be offering ‘contactless’ deliveries. Our drivers will place the delivery in your requested spot, walk away and then send a message that your delivery has arrived. We ask that you promptly reply to confirm you have accepted the delivery. You own and are responsible for all products once they have been delivered to you.
Normal deliveries will be left unattended if you have ticked for them to be left. Otherwise our drivers will contact you for instruction. However, if no one is home at the time of delivery, the order will still be left. It is the responsibility of the household to ensure it is collected appropriately. It is your responsibility to be home to receive the goods if you have declared to do so. You will be liable for re-delivery fees should our driver be unable to deliver to you. Ensure that you check all products carefully against your tax invoice (available on the website or by contacting our customer service team) and take careful notice of storage instructions, ingredient lists, allergens and any best before or use by dates. We suggest you check the whole order and call our office immediately  to report any issues. We cannot accept any responsibility for loss of damage once the delivery has been made.
Inability to Deliver
We cannot guarantee the delivery will be made within the time frame selected because of reasons which may be beyond our control. We use our best endeavours to meet your delivery requirement, but due to many external factors no guarantee is given. If you require the Goods before a specified time on a particular date, please order for delivery on the date before.
If you are not home to receive your order, having indicated that you wish to do so, or are not contactable, or for reasons beyond our control we cannot deliver to your address (i.e. security entry issues) you will be liable for a re-delivery fee. We will try our best to contact you to avoid this situation, however, the responsibility lies with you to be available for delivery or to otherwise authorise acceptance of the goods being left at your door

If we do not have all of the Goods you order in stock, we will make contact and offer you alternatives.   If this happens you may accept the alternatives we offer or cancel all or part of your order. If we owe you money on account of your cancellation, we will credit the same credit card or refund the money to the same payment account from which payment was made (as the case may be) as soon as reasonably practicable but in any event no later than 10 days from the date of cancellation of your order.
Handling of Cakes or Fresh Baked Goods
At GG’s Gourmet Foods we pride ourselves on the quality of the products we supply. Unfortunately, once we despatch any cakes or fresh baked goods several factors relating to the care and transportation of the cakes may result in the quality being compromised or damage occurring to these products. These factors are beyond our control or responsibility. Handling instructions must be followed to avoid compromising the quality, freshness and design. Unfortunately, with all the possible variables, it is not feasible for GG’s Gourmet Foods  to guarantee the fresh baked goods quality in every case once it has left the manufacturer’s premises.
Variations from pictured items
As freshly baked goods  are a handmade product some variation to pictures on the website make occur. Cake designs may also be improved over time, therefore the product received may vary from the image on the site. Variations in colour may occur due to variations of colour perception between computer monitors, or the lighting or conditions that the original photo was taken in.
Where items are provided on cakes such as handmade sugar paste items, they are strictly provided as decorations on a cake, if there are any breakages or faults with the items after they are removed from the cake we will not replace these items.
Special & Seasonal Products
GG’s Gourmet Foods may offer special or seasonal products. This can include hampers, retail packs, seasonal lines and special offers. From time to time, we may also offer special promotions or customer incentives which provide you with a discounted pricing. These promotions are subject to their own terms and conditions and will quite often sell out on a particular day due to heavy demands. You will be advised if this product becomes unavailable.
GG’s Gourmet Foods  newsletter, will detail special offers, discounts and other promotional events. You can subscribe to this newsletter on our website.
