Shipping & Returns
Sensibus is committed to ensuring the safe and efficient delivery of its perishable food products. To do this, we are constantly researching, developing and improving our packaging system. Your cheeses are packaged in insulated cartons and fitted with ice packs to ensure quality standards for up to 48 hours. Items ordered together are not necessarily shipped together.
In order to ensure quality, our cheeses are cut to order. We do our very best to cut it as accurately as possible. There still remains a possibility of shipping a cheese that is slightly bigger or smaller than what has been ordered. All listed measurements and weights are approximate.
Please note that because these are artisan products, the exact color of the cheeses may not match perfectly with the images on our website.
Gift Box & Messages
During the checkout process you will be able to add a gift box to your order and create a personalized gift message that will be included inside the box at no extra charge. Please be sure to provide us with a correct shipping address of the recipient and if possible a phone number.
