Best By Date Policy
Our shelf stable food and beverage products are designed for commercial use, and would typically be shipped 1-3 months before the best by date. The exact remaining suggested shelf life will vary by item due to the nature of each product, and may be shorter with items that require refrigeration.

Content Policy
The information provided on this website does not, and is not intended to, constitute legal advice; instead, all information, content, and materials available on this site are for general informational purposes only. Information on this website may not constitute the most up-to-date legal or other information. Laws change regularly, thus, readers of this site should be familiar with the applicable state laws and restrictions. All liability with respect to actions taken or not taken based on the contents of this site are hereby expressly disclaimed. The site content is provided "as is;" no representations are made that the content is error-free.

Customizable Products
Select products on our site are able to be customized and are designated by a special banner on their page. You can also see a full list of customizable products at our Customizable Supplies page. These products typically have order minimums, extended lead times, and fees associated with them. Sales, discounts, and promos do not apply to customized products. Customized products are non-returnable.

Certain manufacturers of our customizable products have an over or under run policy of up to 25% of the customizable product quantity ordered. This policy means that the final quantity of customizable products delivered to you may be either 25% over or under the quantity of customizable products that you ordered.

If there is an under run on the quantity of items that you receive from a customizable products order, your original form of payment will be credited the proportional amount of the under run at the time the order is shipped. If there is an over run on the quantity of items that you receive from a customizable products order, your original form of payment will be charged the proportional amount of the over run at the time the order is shipped. If you have any questions about whether a certain customizable product is subject to an over or under run policy prior to placing an order, please contact info@mastersupply.co.uk. Otherwise, our Custom Quote team will be in contact with you after an order is placed to advise you of any over or under run policy applicable to your customizable product.

By placing a customizable product order on the Website, you give us the express authority to charge your original form of payment for any overrun of customizable product that you receive as long as the overrun is equal to or less than 25% of the customizable product quantity ordered.

Equipment Parts
Compatible Models are listed as applicable and kept as accurate and up-to-date as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Specialist before placing your order.

Equivalent Items Equivalent items and any associated illustrations or descriptions are presented for your reference. These are items which, based on available manufacturer information, are suitable replacements for the stated original item. These equivalent items are not necessarily authorized, sponsored, or endorsed by the manufacturer of the stated item, or by the manufacturers of equipment compatible with the stated item; any OEM names mentioned are registered trademarks.

Generic / Unbranded Items
On our site, some of our lowest priced items are listed as generic. In other words, we do not have a specific vendor name associated with the product. The product is sourced from a variety of vendors according to price and availability so we may both quickly and fairly accommodate your needs. We do our best in updating our site with any changes in the products and there may be instances where there is a slight variance in the look and feel of the product due to a change in vendors. However, the intended application of the product will remain the same. If you find that this is not the case, please contact our Customer Solutions team immediately and we will look into the issue for you!

Image Color Policy
Our Images Department makes every effort to portray the color of an item as accurately as possible on our site. However, depending on your monitor settings, the color of an item may appear different than in person. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the color displayed on your monitor.

Certain types of products, such as textiles and fabrics, are subject to dye lot variations inherent to their manufacturing process. If you are trying to match an existing product in your possession, please contact us and we will accommodate your request to the best of our ability.

Image Policy
We try to provide the most accurate images of our products as possible. However, some product images prove difficult or impossible to obtain. In these cases, we will use the closest representative image we can find for the product. These representative, illustrative images may show optional accessories or features, or may be an image of a similar product.

Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read the product description and other related product literature such as Specification Sheets, SDS Sheets, etc., before placing your order. If you have any questions or concerns about a product after reading the description and product literature, please contact us.

Price Matching
At mastersupply we try very hard to always have the lowest prices. If you find a lower price from one of our competitors, including delivery, please bring it to our attention with our ask us form. We will do our best to beat the advertised price.

Proposition 65 Notice for Resellers
If you are reselling any items into the State of California you must provide your customers with an appropriate Proposition 65 warning, if required. You can find a warning for your use on the product detail pages of items that require a warning. More information about Proposition 65 is available at www.p65warnings.ca.gov.

Sales and Coupon Code Policy
Because we are a bulk distributor for food service supplies, we make sure to advertise our lowest prices on our website, including discounts we receive from our vendors that are passed onto our customers. On occasion we will provide sales and coupon codes to receive further discounts off the original price of the item. To ensure the discount is received for sales, items should be purchased as soon as possible. Coupon codes for items on our site will have an expiration date associated with them. Coupons and discounts will only be honored on orders that are placed while the coupon/discount is valid. Discounts do not apply to already discounted products and cannot be used in conjunction with other offers.

Pricing that is advertised on sources outside of our website may reflect incorrect prices compared to what we currently offer. The prices on our website are regularly updated to ensure accurate, real-time pricing; however, search engines and coupon code websites may not always provide the most up-to-date prices. Please visit our website to view the current pricing of our items. Prices and coupon codes that are not valid will not be honored at checkout.

Samples
mastersupply offers product samples on select Acopa items. For other items, we recommend purchasing a smaller pack size, when available, before committing to a larger order. Sometimes our manufacturers will send out samples of select products to commercial customers. Please contact Customer Solutions to see if a sample request can be sent to the manufacturer for the item(s) you’re interested in.

Warranty Policy
If a warranty is available for an item, the details of the warranty can be found as a downloadable PDF labeled “Warranty” on the item’s page. All warranty claims are handled based on the manufacturer’s warranty policy. For items being used internationally, please confirm if the warranty is valid in your area.

You May Also Need Items
"You May Also Need" items are products that are guaranteed to work with the item you are viewing, such as lids that will fit a cup or casters that will fit a piece of equipment. If an item is not listed in the "You May Also Need" section on a particular product page, then we do not guarantee that it will work with the product you are viewing and do not recommend that you purchase them for use together. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Specialist before placing your order.
