Great service, but short expiration dates...

Everything about the order process was simple. The staff were very helpful, and my order was dispatched in an efficient and timely manner.

My only negative comment would be regarding the expiration dates of the products i ordered. I purchased 2 boxes of crisps that contain 30 packets each. I will not be able to consume that amount of crisps in one month, yet the expiration date is only 4 weeks from the time of receiving my order.

Hopefully, they can acquire boxes with longer expiration dates in my future orders.

Hello Mr Abughazaleh,

Many thanks for your review. At the stage when the crisps leave the manufacturers they have a 'Best Before' date of 10 weeks, so by the time it has come through the supply chain and reaches us it will only have approximately 4-5 weeks remaining on this date. Because of this it is very hard for us to improve much upon the expiration dates which you had on the crisps you ordered.

We would however like to remind you that these dates are only 'Best Before' and not 'Use By', meaning that this is only the date the manufacturers believe the product should be eaten in order for you to eat them at their best.

If you would like any more information on this or would like to speak to a member of our customer services team, please call +44 (0) 1454 228870 and they will be happy to help.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Kind Regards
The BCS team
