Q&A On Orders And Stock Availability During COVID-19

We appreciated your patience and understanding as we navigate the changes that COVID-19 has brought upon us all. We want you to know that Honest to Goodness is unwavering in its commitment to provide the highest quality, ethically sourced, value for money products and to return to the fast and efficient service that you rely upon.

The good news is, we are almost through the backlog of orders that flooded in and we anticipate we will be able to get orders dispatched more quickly towards the end of this week. The current wait time from receiving orders to them leaving us is 2-5 days.

Due to the extraordinary circumstances we are in though, delivery companies are taking longer than expected to get parcels to people so please allow some extra time between placing your order and the expected arrival date to you.

As we are an essential business, we will remain open and delivering even as tighter restrictions are put in place.

Many of our customer support team are working from home and not able to answer the our phone line we have put together a list of FAQs which may help to answer your questions quickly.


Are you still open?

Yes! We are open and trading as usual however you may experience some delays.
We are considered an essential service and will be open as usual. Some of the team are working remotely.

Are you still at the markets?

In the interest of the health & safety of our team, we have temporarily suspended our weekly market stall at Warriewood & Orange Grove Organic Markets. Our Alexandria store is still open Mon-Sat.

When is this product expected to come back in stock?

We are working closely with our valuable suppliers and increasing our production hours to get products back in stock. We have experienced unusual demand for many products which unfortunately depleted stocks of many popular lines. In addition, like many others, we are experiencing arrival delays, port closures and countries of origin in lockdown which all affect availability. Rest assured we are getting many deliveries daily and are doing our best to navigate stock fluctuations and have as much available as possible for you on any day.

Supply chains are being disrupted all over the world and we are experiencing longer than normal lead times however we do have many products arriving every day. We have more canned products, pasta, flour and rice arriving in the next few weeks and much more on its way after that! For estimated return dates of out of stock products, view here.

We do sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and we encourage you to use the Notify Me feature on our website to receive an email notification the moment an item becomes available again.

When will the flours be back in stock?

We receive deliveries from our supplier Wholegrain Milling every Monday. Unfortunately Wholegrain Milling have been unable to produce any of the Self-Raising Flours or the Organic 7 Grain Bread Mix and therefore may be out of stock for some time.

To allow a fair distribution of incoming stock, limits of 4 bags per customer have been put in place.

When is the SimplyClean Hand Sanitiser back in stock?

Unfortunately, Simplyclean's Australian producer of ethanol is no longer able to supply them until further notice. Therefore, we are unable to receive any further hand sanitiser stock from Simplyclean.

Where can I find your Wholesale Pricelist?

Our Wholesale Pricelist is only available to current wholesale customers. You can find the current pricelist after logging in, under the "my account " section of our website. We will update this each month however, all prices are reflected on the website 

Can I add or remove an item from my order once it has been submitted?

As we are experiencing a significant increase in order volume, to maintain momentum and get orders out the door quickly, we are unable to process additions or remove items at this time. Please take the time to ensure your order is correct before submitting.

I live interstate, will I be able to get my order with state borders closed?

On Sunday 22nd March it was announced that many states will be closing down many non-essential services over the following 48 hours. The most recent advise we have received is that supermarkets, freight and logistics and home delivery services are among those deemed as "essential" therefore orders will still be allowed to be freighted to you across borders. 

How long will it take to get my order?

Due to a very large influx of orders, we are currently experienced delays of  2-5 days to get some orders out of the warehouse. We are running extra shifts each day to get as many orders as possible out to our customers. Please note that due to the extraordinary circumstances we are in,delivery companies are taking longer than expected to get parcels to people so please allow some extra time between placing your order and the expected arrival date to you.

Do I have to sign for my delivery or how do I request ATL?

All orders from Honest to Goodness automatically come with an authority to leave, so no contact is necessary when receiving your order. 

Why can I not pick up my order from your warehouse anymore?

In the interest of the health & safety of our team and to ensure couriers can pick up orders with ease, we have temporarily suspended the option to pick up orders from our warehouse.

Please refer to our Shipping & Delivery page for other delivery alternatives.

How do I track my order?

You can login to your "my account" on the website to check the status of your order.
You will receive an automated email from our system when the order has been dispatched to allow you to track your order. We appreciate that you may be concerned about the delay in your order however please resist emailing us for an order update unless it has been more than 7 days since your order was placed.

Why am I not able to get through to you on the phone?

Most of our customer service team are working remotely so we are not always able to answer the phone. If you need to talk to a staff member it may be best to email your question to info@goodness.com.au and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that dues to the high volume of enquiries we are getting the will be some delays in being able to reply to you.

Why haven’t I heard back from the Honest to Goodness Customer Support Team?

We do recommend an email to  info@goodness.com.au as the best point of contact. Please be assured we will respond to your inquiry as soon as we can.
