3. Delivery Arrangements

All orders are dispatched either using our in-house temperature-controlled delivery vehicle or a licensed third party chilled delivery service.  Our delivery system enables us to deliver across the seven emirates as well as remote locations. La Carne products are packed and handled with love and care in food-safe condition during transit in chilled temperatures between 0 to 4 degrees Celsius.

VERY IMPORTANT! When placing your order, it is important that someone should be at home to take delivery of your order during your requested time frame; the trained delivery drivers will have instructions to leave your delivery in a reasonably secure place at the premises if there is one available. The drivers know they are carrying perishable goods. The delivery shall be deemed to have been made either when the consignee accepts delivery in person, or when the driver leaves your delivery at the unattended premises.  

La Carne cannot accept any responsibility for your order whatsoever if no one is at home at the time of delivery and is left in a secure location and if contact information is inaccurate. If you have nominated someone else to accept your delivery for you, La Carne cannot accept any responsibility for any deterioration in goods delivered in terms of temperature and quality.  Returned items will not be refunded to the above reason.

4. Acceptable Weight Variation

When you place your order, you agree to purchase by piece or based on nominal weight of produce at a specified price. We will collect the payment via the payment method you select when placing the order.  Slight variation may occur in quality, weight and size since our products are indvidually prepared or cut-to-order.  We will ensure that any variation never exceed more than or less than 10% of any item specified. Since it is impractical for us to request additional payments or process small refunds for such variations, items delivered within the tolerance limit of +/- 10% of the weight ordered shall be deemed completely sold. When more than 10% variance occurs we will issue a gift card credit which will be emailed to the billing email address for use on your next order. 

5. Guarantee of Satisfaction

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the quality of the produce or service received, you should contact us within 24 hours of receipt. All complaints will be dealt with personally and immediately by our management team, who undertakes to resolve all complaints to your satisfaction within 7 days.

5a. Marbling

Marbling is the term for intramuscular fat or the white flecks and streaks of fat within the lean sections of meatMarbling is so named because the streaks of fat resemble a marble pattern. Also called intramuscular fat, marbling adds flavor and is one of the main criteria for judging the quality of cuts of meat.

Our meat at La Carne is known for good marbling which is key for a great steak experience which is present in most if not all our meat, as well as burgers with 80/20 lean to fat ratio. There are some customers however who prefer leaner or completely lean meat. In this case you can add in preferences that you prefer leaner meat which we will do our best to provide, but 100% lean meat is not our specialty nor can we promise it. In the event that you are not happy with the lean to fat ratio, please do contact us.

6. Non-Delivery Claims

In the event of your order failing to arrive when expected, please contact us by email or by telephone within 24 hours of the expected delivery quoting your order number. We will immediately investigate and let you know the situation. Should your order not be delivered within the time frame stated in the website acknowledgement, you will be entitled to a full and immediate refund in the form of credit voucher.

7. No Cancellation/ No Refund/ No Return/ No Exchange Policy
