In order to protect our staff, customers, suppliers and contractors, here are the new measures we’ve put in place in response to COVID-19.
7 step health & safety plan
- All deliveries are now contact-less. Our drivers will buzz, drop and go to avoid direct contact with customers.
- All pick up orders are also now contact-less. Customers will collect their order from our outdoor table instead of having it handed over. No customers may enter any of our premises. Customers will be kindly asked to wait outside.
- No customers may enter any of our premises. Customers will be kindly asked to wait outside.
- Increased deep cleaning and sanitisation. Introduced for all sites and vehicles, using industrial disinfectant. This includes twice daily cleansing of all door handles, freezer and fridge doors, light switches, taps, surfaces and on vehicles includes steering wheels, handles and doors.
- Increased hand washing procedures. All staff are required to wash their hands upon arrival and at set intervals throughout the day.
- Changes of clothes required for all kitchen and driving staff. Change of clothes is now compulsory upon arrival and again upon leaving to limit any chance of contamination. All on-site clothes will be laundered overnight on-site.
- Further distancing of staff both within the office, packing and kitchen environments. Movements between office, packing and kitchen staff are now limited. This includes split-shifts being introduced in our kitchens.
In addition to this, all staff have signed a waiver to confirm that, to the best of their knowledge, they and members of their households have not been exposed to the COVID-19 infection. All staff will stay away from work should they begin to feel unwell.
Although Dietlicious have taken the above precautions to prevent and limit the spread of infection, please be aware that we accept no liability for any potential transmission of COVID-19. Ordering from us and coming in contact with our food, our drivers, couriers and other staff or contractors is at the customers own risk.
Are there any contracts?
There are no contracts and no joining fees. You have the option to pick and choose when you would like to order so long as the minimum food value is $50 (plus delivery fee). After ordering online, you will receive an email confirmation containing your order details. Please check all details in the confirmation email thoroughly and call our office if any changes are required Please note that we require 1-2 business days notice to adjust delivery dates and any meal changes to an order.
What is the best way to start?
We recommend you start with a Cleanse. This is a great way to revitalise and detox your body. Follow with a Plan to achieve your weight loss goals through portion control – choose from either 1200, 1500 or 1800 calorie options. Then continue your healthy eating regime/maintenance program with our Individual Meals.
What’s the difference between a Cleanse and Plan?
Our range of Cleanse programs (approx. 1100 calories per day) gives your digestive system a rest from wheat, gluten, dairy, red meat, preservatives, additives + highly processed foods. It is a great way to start your healthy eating program, lose a few kilos and feel great inside and out. Plans are calorie controlled for weight loss and re-introduce all ingredients in a moderate healthy portion for each meal.
