fruit FAQS
  • Q: How do I place an order?

    With so many options (order size, delivery days, fruit preferences, delivery frequency and payment preferences), we like to discuss your order over the phone and set up a tailored order to meet your needs. Call us now on 1300 766 760 to get your first fruit box on the way.
  • Q: Can I stop or change my order, are there any contracts?

    We do not require you to sign up to a contract to receive regular deliveries of fruit of milk. You can stop or change your order as required by contacting our friendly customer service team either by phone or email. We need to know the day before you wish to make changes to your order – before 12pm AEST for fruit and milk orders. You can make changes to anything to do with your deliveries – the scheduled day, the frequency (daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly), or even the types of fruit that are included in the variety mix.
  • Q: How do I work out how to split up my order to ensure all staff are covered?

    Consider the distribution of your staff – If you have an office that’s spread over various floors or departments, we can break up your order to exactly match your staff’s distribution and kitchen areas.
  • Q: What do I need to do if my order seems to be missing?

    If you are missing your regular order please let us know within 24 hours so we can assist you and resolve any issues. As our deliveries contain fresh produce it is difficult to resolve any service issues you may experience if you notify us after this period.
  • Q: How much flexibility do I have in my order?

    The Fruit Box gives you a high level of flexibility with your fruit boxes. Most suppliers have a limited range of choices i.e. a standard or large box of mixed fruit. The Fruit Box has invested significantly in software and systems that enable you to have flexibility in:
    • Quantities and box sizes
      You can select the exact amount of fruit and how you want the order split into different boxes.
    • Fruit preferences
      You can select any particular fruit preferences that you may have.
    • Order frequency deliveries
      You can have deliveries daily, weekly, monthly or ad hoc orders.
  • Q: How do you work out how much fruit to order?

    First you’ll need to decide on the quantity of fruit. We normally recommend around two to three pieces per person per week, but it’s entirely up to you.
  • Q: Can I select specific fruit for our regular fruit boxes?

    You can tell us exactly which fruit are both included and excluded from your order. Or you can leave it to us to create a mix of the freshest, tastiest fruit that is also great value.
  • Q: What kinds of Fruit can I expect in my delivery? Can I provide you with my Fruit preferences?

    Here is the link to our What’s in the Box which will give you an idea of what to expect in your fruit box. The mix changes depending on the season and availability. You can select any particular fruit preferences that you may have – you can tell us exactly which fruit are both included and excluded from your order.
  • Q: Can I include other fruit not already in the Standard Mix?

    Subject to seasonal availability, we can include other fruit in your delivery. Some examples include Strawberries, Grapes, Avocados, Lemons, Dried Fruit & Nut mixes and Bread.
