At a Divine Dish we pride ourselves on providing exceptional food alongside exceptional service.

It is the client’s responsibility to inform us of any allergies that are food related and we will then discuss possible options. A Divine Dish will not take any responsibility for allergic reactions if allergies have not been discussed in the order process. We will do our best to cater to most people but depending on requests, sometimes it is not always possible.

Delivery days for Southland, Queenstown & Dunedin are currently Wednesdays and Fridays. If you are needing an order put together urgently, we are able to do this and deliver on other weekdays, this is dependent on what we have in stock at the time of ordering. Orders must be received at least 72 hours prior to the delivery day requested. All meals are frozen on the day created and delivered in this state, labelled, packaged with ice packs into a polystyrene bin which is then sealed. This is to ensure safe, chilled and protected travels. Meals should be defrosted in the fridge before heating or 6 hours on the bench at room temperature. If you are needing a particular dish delivered ready to heat that evening, please let us know and we will endeavour to make sure that this is defrosted for you.

It is paramount that the client follows all care and reheating instructions regarding our products.

This means

  • Chill the meals as soon as they are delivered or return to the freezer
  • Defrost before heating as per instructions
  • If the meal is delivered fresh eat within 2 days or freeze
  • Always preheat the oven. And follow the cooking times and temperatures stated on each dish.

We love what we do and strive to provide the finest products taking extra care with the creation of these dishes. We also love nothing more than repeat business so if there is a glitch in the system, we will endeavour to correct the situation to your satisfaction. We ask that you let us know within 24 hours of the problem so that it can be rectified as soon as possible.

  1. Correct the situation by supplying what you need as to not affect the enjoyment of our product
  2. Offer a refund on reasonable terms
  3. If necessary work through the correct mediation channels offered to us here in New Zealand.

The Product

Items will be adapted and changed on the website seasonally and at our discretion. Occasionally we may have issues beyond our control with suppliers. While we will do everything in our power to avoid this happening, in this case we would contact the client directly to organise a suitable and agreeable alternative. While we do not accept liability for any loss arising, every effort will be made to keep the information up to date and accurate.

All of our DIVINE meals and morsels are made from scratch with the finest of ingredients and a tonne of passion. We hope you love your Divine Dishes and we are grateful for your valued business.
