Our Packaging Method
When we ship our Specialty Chorizo, we are not just shipping you our delicious quality products; we are reducing our footprint with our Environmentally-Friendly Packaging for a greener world.
Our frozen product is placed inside a reusable thermal pouch; our recyclable shipper box is then lined with biodegradable insulated foam to house the pouch. A bag containing Dry Ice is then placed on top of the sealed thermal pouch.
Don Felipe is currently only shipping 5 or 10 pounds of product per box. Please contact customer service if you are interested in shipments over 10lbs.
To help ensure your order arrives in optimal condition, every order is shipped frozen with the exception of our Chorizo Salami. Don Felipe guarantees the quality of its chorizo products within six months of the ship date for all frozen items when kept in the Cryovac package. Our products will arrive frozen or partially frozen.
Please plan ahead if you are planning to cook and serve our chorizo for an event or special occasion, our frozen product may take up 10 hours to thaw in your refrigerator. All frozen products should be thawed naturally in your refrigerator.
Orders are only shipped on Monday & Tuesday. Please plan ahead if you’re needing product for a special occasion or event. Orders are shipped 2nd Day Air via UPS. However, your order may arrive +/- 1 days from the estimated delivery day. A tracking number will be generated and shared with our customers once the product reaches our shipping carrier. Don Felipe is not responsible for products left unattended after it has been delivered.
UPS drivers will leave all packages at the shipping destination (no need to sign). Due to COVID-19, the driver may or may not ring the doorbell or knock upon delivery.
