Here at Boxmix.co.uk, we are constantly evolving our methods and workflow to ensure we can provide not only the latest sweets and treats but also the freshest!
Buying pick n mix online or any edible product for that matter is not like buying in a store. The biggest difference is that you cant easily see the quality or freshness of a product online.
This is where boxmix.co.uk set the standard! Moving forward our entire product range will have detailed best before dates on each product so you know exactly how long is left when you purchase it. Giving you this information ensures you can buy fresh products every time!
As part of our new and exclusive validate system, anything that is approaching its best before the date will automatically be moved into a clearance category 30 days before giving you an opportunity to snap up a bargain!.
Best before dates what do they mean?
“Best before” dates appear on a wide range of frozen, dried, tinned, and other foods. “Best before” dates are about quality, not safety. When the date is passed, it doesn’t mean that the food will be harmful, but it might begin to lose its flavor and texture.
A use-by date on food is about safety. This is the most important date to remember. You can eat food until and on the use-by date but not after. You will see use-by dates on food that goes off quickly, such as meat products or ready-to-eat salads.
Having that extra piece of valuable information helps our customers make informed decisions. Knowing when a product is reaching its best before date allows you to plan ahead. Therefore, it ensures when your delivery arrives with you it tastes just as it should!
We believe that transparency is clear. Providing vital information at the point of purchase makes the buying experience 100 times better.
Moreover, behind the scenes we track everything. Traceability is paramount when it comes to food. You want to be reassured that if a manufacturer issues a recall that you would be notified.
Our in-house validation system does just that. As soon as a batch is alerted we can filter out who received items from that very source. Instant notifications are able to then be issued.
If a food safety incident happens and the food has been supplied, it will have to be ‘withdrawn’ and if necessary ‘recalled’.
A withdrawal is a process by which unsafe food is
removed from the supply chain, where unsafe food
has not yet reached the consumer.
A recall is a process by which unsafe food is
removed from the supply chain and consumers are
advised to take appropriate action, for example to
return or dispose of the unsafe food.
Making buying sweets online easy
With more and more shops disappearing from our high streets the range of traditional pick n mix is dwindling. More shoppers are turning to online shops to fuel their fix.
When choosing who to order your pick n mix from maybe think twice about how fresh it really is.
Look at how your order is packaged. Does it come in a pizza box? or is it in a food-grade sealable bag? All our pick n mix only come in food-grade containers from the sealable bags to our famous buckets.
Having over 300 product lines to maintain the validate system makes it a breeze. Protecting our customers whilst at the same time managing our product range.
