Disclaimer: Products are subject to availability. Packaging and ingredients may vary as manufacturers frequently update products. If gift basket components are not available we will substitute them with a similar product at an equal or higher value.

Allergies & Intolerances

  • At FAIR/SQUARE, we take allergies and intolerances seriously and try to be as transparent and accurate as possible.
  • We rely on the information made available by the manufacturers and cannot guarantee accuracy under all circumstances. Manufacturers, e.g., might change recipes or production facilities without notifying us.
  • If you have serious and/or life-threatening allergies, please always double check with the manufacturer.

Vegan-certified vs. vegan-friendly products

All products sold at FAIR/SQUARE are free from animal-derived ingredients and have never been tested on animals.

  • Some products show a vegan certification logo. This means that they have been made in a production facility dedicated to vegan products and have been certified by an independent 3rd party organization.
  • Some products show only the word 'vegan' on the packaging. This means that the manufacturer guarantees that the product does not contain animal-derived ingredients but they did not go through the process of third party certification (yet).
  • Some products are 'accidentally vegan' or vegan-friendly. This means they do not contain ingredients of animal origin but they could have been made in a facility that makes other products containing animal-derived ingredients such as milk, eggs etc.
  • Due to industry regulations in regards to allergies, you may find a warning such as 'may contain: milk' under the ingredients list. This does not mean milk is in the product, but there's a slight chance of cross-contamination.

 

How does refrigerated shipping for gift baskets work?
  • All our gift basket prices include free shipping - even gift baskets that require refrigeration.
  • The rate includes express shipping via one of our couriers to get your products to the recipient as fast as possible (usually within 1-2 business days).
  • The rate also includes curbside recyclable insulation material and a large gel ice pack (which is colder than ice) to keep the products cold during transportation.

 

How long will the products stay cold during transportation?
  • Depending on the season, the ice pack and insulation last 24h to 36h during summer months and 48h to 72h in winter months.
  • Refrigerated gift baskets that contain frozen meat alternatives can stay cold even longer.

 

When do refrigerated orders ship?
  • Refrigerated gift baskets generally only ship Mondays and Tuesdays. We do not ship later in the week to avoid orders sitting in a courier warehouse over the weekend in case of unforeseen delays.
  • If you ship to anywhere between Toronto and London, ON we may use an alternate shipper called ShipperBee to ship your order on Wednesdays or Thursdays.

 

How do I track my order?
  • Once your order has shipped you will receive a tracking number via email. Most often, we ship your refrigerated order via UPS or Purolator.
  • UPS and Purolator offers extra services that can be accessed via the tracking result page: Signup with ‘UPS My Choice’  for free to pass delivery instructions on to the driver and other services and signup with ‘Purolator Your Way’ for SMS notifications and more.
  • If your shipping destination is between Toronto and London, ON, we might ship your order via ShipperBee. You will receive automated tracking emails from them directly.

 

sending refrigerated gift baskets to friends and family
  • It is important to let the gift recipient know that they will receive a package from us and to pass on the tracking info in a timely manner.
  • If the gift basket is supposed to be a surprise, make sure to keep a close eye on the tracking and let the recipient know when the gift basket is out for delivery.
  • Let the recipient know that the package contains products that need to be refrigerated upon arrival. We will also place a sticker on the box to let them know.

 

What happens if the products arrive spoiled?
  • Refrigerated vegan products such as meat and cheese alternatives are not considered hazardous foods by public health (unlike real cheese or meat) and temporary changes in temperature do not generally compromise the safety of the product.
  • We do everything in our power to keep your products cold during transportation and get them to the recipient as fast as possible. If something arrives spoiled, it is usually due to manufacturing issues (such as a broken seal), not due to transportation.
  • We are not responsible for delayed packages. Once the order is shipped we have no control over unforeseen delays due to weather, peak season delays, etc.
  • Before COVID, we would have been able to claim insurance for delayed shipments, but since the start of the Pandemic, delivery guarantees have been suspended by all shippers. Insurance can only be claimed for lost or damaged packages, not for delays.
  • With all that being said, if an order arrives in an unacceptable condition, we ask that you email hello@fair-square.ca. We will review your case and try to find an amicable solution.

 

How can the shipping materials be disposed of?
  • Our insulated liner is entirely plastic-free and curbside recyclable.
  • The gel ice packs are non-toxic and very sturdy. Use them to keep your lunch cold and reuse them as often as you want.If you would like to dispose of them, the liquid can be poured down the drain.
  • The plastic can be recycled (where applicable).
