Orders placed by telephone or on-line after 12 noon will not be processed until the following day for delivery the day after. Orders placed by telephone or on-line before 12 noon will be processed that day for delivery the following day, unless alternative instructions are received.
Whilst the order will have been dispatched for next day delivery, HB Ingredients cannot guarantee delivery next day, since delivery will be made by an external courier.

If you have an established credit account, our standard terms are 30 days from the date of invoice, unless an alternative period has been arranged. All goods will remain the property of Henley Bridge Ingredients Ltd who will possess Reservation of Title until paid for in full.

Setting up a Credit Account

To set up a credit account, you will be required to complete an account application form which can be mailed to you or sent via email. Please note that it can take a few weeks to obtain references.

Stock Availability

Although we endeavor to ensure most items in our product Price Lists are available from stock, please note that, where stock is not available, there may be a delay in fulfilling all or part of your order.
When an order is placed, we will confirm if any item is out of stock and will advise an estimated time as to when it will be available for delivery. We will then offer the following options:

-    Accepting the incomplete order now and then adding the missing item to your next order or
