Returns Policy

 

Damages and Shortages
All damages or shortages must be noted at time of delivery. We will not be responsible for any damages or shortages not noted on delivery slip. Damages and shortages may not be deducted from payment of invoice. Our office will issue a credit upon verification of damages and/or shortages. Please call within 24 hours of receiving your order to report any damage or shortages in order to receive credit.


Returns

We will be happy to accept a reasonable amount* of returns for credit provided the product(s) are undamaged, unmarked, clean, and in otherwise re-sellable condition, subject to our approval. Please note: for food and treat items to be considered re-sellable, they must be returned no closer than three months to the date of expiration. Please contact us ahead of time for any returns.


*A reasonable amount of returns is considered less than 2% of purchases. If returns exceed 2% for reasons other than defective products or customer returns, then a 10% restocking fee may be charged on returned items.*

Outdated product is not eligible for return. To return slow-moving product that you think may go out of date, please contact us at least three months before expiry. We may be able to help you sell it with coupons or discounts. If you would like to return your close-dated product, please arrange for pick up if you are along our delivery route, otherwise, please arrange transport of the product to our location.

Frozen raw products are not eligible for return due to the nature of the product. Once frozen raw products have been accepted and have left our control, credits will not be issued. Frozen raw products must be checked at the time of delivery; the 24-hour call in rule does not apply to frozen raw products.
For customer returns, please fill in and submit our customer return form. Customer Return Form must be completely filled out to receive credit. We will notify you about product handling. All products must have UPCs attached to the customer return form. To receive credit for customer returned products, please mail or hand deliver to a VPFS representative.
