Returns & Consumer Safety
- Our business practices follow the Florida Food Safety Act, FDA, and other pertinent federal, state, and local food safety rules and regulations.
- Our corporate mission is to safeguard public health and promote public welfare by protecting the consuming public from injury by product use and by protecting the purchasing public from injury by merchandising deceit.
- Our warehouse uses special, secure temperature and humidity-controlled packaging technology to assure safe food transportation to its destination. Our warehouse ALWAYS orders an overnight shipment of perishable frozen goods from the carrier or appropriate next-day service provided by the carrier.
- From time to time, manufacturers change the look of their packaging or their labels. Sometimes for season. Other times to update general information. We do our best to have updated photos, but cannot guarantee every change as we are not alerted when this happens.
- Any accidental transportation damage must be addressed with the shipping carrier in accordance with their specific policy.
- To prevent our products from the risks associated with spoilage, contamination, or misbranding, we cannot resell returned food items. Hence, we have to discard returned food.
- For public safety reasons, all food sales are FINAL SALES. No return or exchange claims will be accepted with the exception of the specific RETURNS AND EXCHANGES POLICY Below.
- All delivery dates are approximate estimates from the carriers. Real Gourmet Food is not liable for any damage as a result of any delay or failure to deliver for any reason including, but not limited to, problems with suppliers, embargos or other governmental acts, regulations or requests, fire, flood, accidents, sabotage, strikes, slowdowns or other labor difficulties, war, riot, delays in transportation, or defaults of common carriers. In the event of any such delay, the date of delivery shall be extended for a period of time equal to the time lost because of the delay. A buyer’s exclusive remedy for Real Gourmet Food's inability to deliver for any reason shall be the rescission of this agreement, which the buyer can only exercise before our warehouse has handed over the product to a carrier at any point of shipment.
- Agreeing to Real Gourmet Food's terms and conditions shall constitute the entire agreement between Real Gourmet Food and the buyer. No term or provision of this agreement may be amended, waived, discharged, or terminated orally, but it can happen through an instrument in writing that is signed by all parties, except as otherwise expressly provided herein.
- The agreement and all rights hereunder shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Florida (without regard to any rules or principles of conflicts of laws that might look to any jurisdiction outside of the State of Florida). The parties irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of any federal or state court located in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and each party irrevocably agrees that any action may be heard and determined in the aforementioned federal or state courts. The parties further irrevocably waive to the fullest extent that each may effectively do so, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any action in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
- In the event of any dispute arising out of or relating to this transaction (whether a suit is brought or not), the unsuccessful party in such a dispute shall pay to the successful party all costs and expenses incurred by the successful party, including reasonable attorney’s fees like paying for the attorney and other costs.
