The Scottish Dog Food Company Terms and Conditions
Storage of Scoffdug Foods
Please store the food in its original packaging until the dog food has been completely consumed. Some customers may want to transfer the food into sealable containers, this is fine however the packaging contains important information often needed to identify the variety of dog food, the manufacturing plant, time it was made and the production date.
It is important you ensure that the storage area is cool and the food cannot be exposed to moisture or fluctuating temperatures. This can cause condensation leading to the kibble deteriorating and can cause mould and be unsuitable for consumption.
If food is delivered and it left open to the elements, make sure that the bag is thoroughly dry before storage, failure to do this can cause issues after being brought indoors as condensation may form.
Please be aware that it is the customers responsibility to store food correctly.
Not for Re-Sale
All goods purchased are done so on the strict understanding that they are for personal use and are not for resale.
*Be aware Breeders and Bulk Buyers if found to be reselling our food for profit without being a recognised supplier are in breach of our terms and conditions of sale therefore we will stop supplying them.
