We request your phone number to contact you in case we need to give you an order update and we request your address so we can ship your order. Rest assured, we never rent or sell your contact information to anybody, for anything.
Do they need to be refrigerated?
We recommend all products should be kept in the fridge, however some jars can be kept on the shelf before opening (this is written on the front of the jar and includes all products in our Mustard & Chutney Style categories). Some people also ask about refrigeration while traveling. All our products will be fine out of the fridge for the day granted they are kept out of direct sunlight and better still, keep them in a cooler bag.
Can I take your products with me when I go overseas?
Many customers take our products overseas with them by wrapping them carefully and transporting them in their luggage. All our products will be fine to travel but do ensure that the jars are un-opened, and that any products marked “keep refrigerated” are refrigerated before and after travel.
What local and imported ingredients do you use?
Where possible we use all local natural ingredients. However we use some imported products, such Italian sundried tomatoes (Italy), and Californian Walnuts (USA), Parmesan Cheese (Italy), Blue Cheese (Denmark). However, all of our fresh ingredients including; fruit, herbs, and base ingredients such as eggs, bush honey, and basil are sourced from local farms in South-East Queensland.
Why do you use Canola Oil?
We use Canola Oil because it is recognised by many professional health organisations worldwide, and allows us to keep our products very low in saturated fat content. From our research, Canola Oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, and has been shown in many clinical trials to lower LDL cholesterol levels (the type associated with coronary heart disease), and total cholesterol. We use Australian made non-GM Canola Oil from an Australian owned company.
I need products without any sweetener, what do you recommend?
All of our Mayonnaise and Mustard based products are made wholly with local bush honey to sweeten in place of sugar. However our chutneys and jam products are made with sugar as a key ingredient for their consistency. If you were interested in products that contain no added honey or sugar, you would be looking at our Unsweetened Products range.
Which of your products are Gluten Free?
All of our products are completely wheat and gluten free. We make them all with natural ingredients, and do not use thickeners or wheat products. Yes we know, finally some delicious condiments for all you coeliacs out there!
Which of your products are Vegan?
We define Vegan products as those that do not include animal products of any kind, including egg and honey. Have a look at our Vegan range.
Which of your products are Dairy Free?
The products that contain no butter, milk, or cheese ingredients can be found in our Dairy Free range.
Which of your products are Vegetarian?
All of our products are vegetarian with the exception of: Caesar Salad Dressing (contains anchovies) Smoked Salmon Dip (contains salmon). Take a look at our entire Vegetarian range.
Sometimes I buy the same product but it can look or taste different, why is this?
All our products are made from fresh ingredients and in small batches, so not every batch will be the same. Sometimes suppliers, quantities, and strength of the ingredients themselves can vary. But generally speaking, the taste of the products should be much the same.
How should I heat my Hollandaise or Bearnaise sauce?
Our recommendation is not to heat them. As they are made on a base of butter they will warm very quickly, naturally. We find the best way is to serve straight from the jar onto your meat/eggs/veggies – and the sauce will warm with the food. However you could also spoon some into a small dish placed near your stove while you’re cooking, which will gradually bring the sauce to room temperature.
When will my order ship?
Orders will be packed within 24 hours and delivery is between 1 and 3 working days. Please keep in mind that parcels only be posted on week days, and generally are not sent over the weekend due to the perishable nature of the products. So, for example, if you were to order on a Friday the parcel would not be sent until the Monday.
Do you ship to Post Office boxes?
Unfortunately, we cannot ship to PO Boxes. We ship with courier companies that require you to have a physical address for delivery.
Do you ship internationally?
Unfortunately at this stage we do not ship overseas.
What are your shipping options?
Our preferred courier for shipping within Australia is Fastway Couriers who offer regular ground shipping to most areas of Australia. For rural and other areas we ship with Australia Post.
How is shipping calculated?

We are so sorry but due to product sensitivity out of the fridge, we do not ship to South Australia or Western Australia.
Each order is packed with reusable ice packs to keep your order chilled in transit. For this reason we only ship refrigerated products to you if you are within a 3 day delivery range of Brisbane.
