SHIPPING EXCLUSIONS

DELIVERY

  • Once your order ships from our warehouse, you will receive an e-mail confirmation with a tracking number. Circumstances beyond our control make it impossible to guarantee exact delivery dates. Our team works diligently to fulfill your orders as quickly and efficiently as possible, however we cannot control external factors such as shipping delays from our carrier, bad weather conditions, or other unforeseen issues beyond our capabilities.

OUR FRESHNESS PROMISE

  • To assure freshness, all of our products ship with a minimum best before date of 45 days. Clearance items will ship with a minimum best before date of 30 days. The best before date on our chocolate products is a quality tool. It assures that the quality of a product consumed at the end of the shelf life still lives up to the Sconza premium experience when stored at the right conditions.
  • If you receive a product not meeting these requirements, please contact our customer service team for assistance.

REFUSALS

  • If shipments are refused, we cannot guarantee that the chocolate will not be damaged. If you find a package was damaged while in transit, communicate the damage to the FedEx representative. We will settle any damage disputes with our carriers and will gladly replace any damaged product.
