The full cost of VistaVeg deliveries (less any agreed discounts) must be paid within 30 days of an invoice being issued.

If full payment is not received within 60 days, we reserve the right to not deliver. 8% interest will be chargeable on debts over 30 days.

Exclusions

In the event that we consider:-

a) you are in breach of any of these Terms and Conditions or any regulations issued from time to time by us;

b) your behaviour towards us, other box scheme members, our suppliers, agents, managers, subcontractors or employees is disruptive, inappropriate, or likely to bring us or any of our produce or services into disrepute, we reserve the right to exclude you from the VistaVeg box scheme or Educational Visits.

In the event that you are excluded we reserve the right to seek payment of the balance of any monies due to us. It is our company policy to pursue unpaid debts through the Small Claims Court.

Refunds are issued by BACS payment direct into your bank account.

We will process any refund within 28 days of notifying you that we are issuing you a refund.

Cancellations

We reserve the right to cancel a delivery at any time up to and including the date of the delivery itself (ie, due to adverse weather conditions).
