Our price for providing the fruit including delivery is set out overleaf. Based on current government legislation, the Fruidel service aligns with the zero-rated for VAT purposes and therefore VAT does not need to be added to the price. Where additions or reductions to your order are requested, we will advise you of any associated change to our price.
For your and our administrative ease, we aim to keep prices fixed for periods of four months at a time. The only time that we will change pricing prior to four months would be if there is an unforeseen circumstance that causes fruit prices to soar (e.g. natural disaster, conflict, etc) that materially affects fruit prices or other costs that impact our business (e.g. fuel prices). Within this fixed price arrangement, we will always provide the quantity of fruit ordered overleaf. Wholesale fruit prices do, however, fluctuate for many reasons throughout the year. Where these fluctuations are substantial (for example, bad weather may mean that much less of a particular type of fruit is produced than normal, resulting in higher prices for the reduced quantity available), it may be necessary to alter the selection of fruit included however you will always get the number of pieces your chosen basket has as standard.
We will always try to avoid implementing these changes wherever possible and furthermore in undertaking periodic pricing reviews, we will only seek to change pricing where there is a medium to long-term shift in fruit prices or other costs that materially impact our business (e.g. fuel prices). Where there is a need to change our prices, we will advise you of any changes in good time of new pricing taking effect.

The Baskets are the property of Fruidel Ltd. We will rotate the Baskets each time we deliver – if a Basket is damaged or goes missing, there is a replacement fee of £9.99 per big Basket or £8.40 per small Basket. Each time our delivery team collects the empty Baskets (“empties”) they note down the number of empties received (from the previous delivery). We then regularly monitor the empties received from each client to ensure they are being accounted for.
Any missed or wrong deliveries need to be reported on email via email@example.com on the same day it was due to be delivered for us to action the necessary credits or redeliveries.
Any substandard fruit related issues must be documented to us via email along with photographic evidence on the day the fruit was delivered for us to take action.

Finally, thank you again for choosing Fruidel. We always value client feedback and therefore if you have any comments at any time, please contact us.
- For order alterations please email any one of our Customer Service team, we are unable to take these over the phone. If you decide to alter your order we can action this for you but we will need to be informed 48 hours the day before your fruit basket arrives to your office. This is because our warehouse team purchase the fruit up-front from our market based suppliers. Milk orders can be amended up to 1pm the day before your delivery arrives. Our drivers don’t make deliveries on Bank Holidays or during the Christmas Period. A week beginning with a Bank Holiday will be scheduled as the following:
Monday – Closed
Tuesday – Monday’s baskets delivered (Tuesday only deliveries will also made on this day if the customer doesn’t have a Monday delivery already)
Wednesday – Normal deliveries
Thursday – Normal deliveries
Friday – Normal deliveries
Please not that we cannot accept any basket reductions more than one basket during a Bank Holiday week. This is due to the fact that preparations for Bank Holidays are made weeks in advance by both our admin team and the warehouse team.
