Our webshop is closed temporarily. We plan to be open again tomorrow morning. We are currently only selling a ‘gluten free food box’ intended for coeliacs and those with gluten intolerances. Unfortunately, we are unable to take online orders for anything else at this stage. This is due to continued high demand and limited order processing capability in our webshop operation.
