IMPORTANT NOTICE ON SHIPPING
While we make our best efforts to keep the puree cold when they reach you, we unfortunately cannot guarantee it being frozen, especially during the summer months or if you reside outside of Ontario.
If the puree arrives partially thawed, simply put it back in the freezer to keep its quality intact. In the event that they arrive completely thawed, so long as the inner seal is not broken, they are safe to use. Unused portions can be frozen again for longer term storage.
Purees with more fibres naturally separates when thawed. Simply stir to use. A good trick is to portion the purees in your own containers before refreezing them.
We hope you enjoy the freshness of Taka purees and the vibrant colours and excellent flavours they bring to your recipes.
