We ship the majority of our products via the United Parcel Service (UPS), our preferred shipper. We also ship products via the United States Postal Service (USPS) on occasion based on product weight and region. All orders are vacuum sealed and packaged with gel-icepacks in our special coolers; we add dry ice as needed to keep our products cool during shipping.

Orders are shipped on weekly basis no later than Tuesday to ensure that your order is not delayed in a shipping terminal during the weekend. We care about freshness of our products!

Flat rate shipping rate starts from $29.99 per order. Some regions may have higher costs.

We try to get all orders out the door as fast as we possibly can, and typically this means 1-10 business days to process but no more than 30 days. Around major holidays, things may take a little bit longer. Please contact us if you need your order to arrive by a certain date – we will do our best to ensure that deadline is met.

If you order multiple quantities of the same item we may send them as one piece (in this case we consider the weight of your product) unless you have specified differently. At times in order to fit in the shipping containers, your piece may be cut to size and vacuum sealed. Orders are shipped to all addresses on  Mondays and Tuesday. In some cases we may even ship your order on Wednesdays and Saturdays depends on how far away you're located from us and how long USPS's estimated arrival time to your address.
