FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

(1) Is everything vegan?

Yes. All our bakes are suitable for vegans (and loved by all.)

(2) Do you offer gluten-free bakes?

Some of our bakes are made without gluten. However, due to possible cross-contamination, they are not suitable for allergy sufferers. 

(3) Are any of your bakes made without soya?

Yes! In fact, most of our bakes are made without soya. Check the product information for more details. (Please note due to possible cross contamination, we cannot say that our bakes are completely soya free, and are therefore not suitable for those who suffer from a soy allergy.) If you have any queries, please email hello@actually-good.co.uk.

(4) Are your bakes suitable for allergy sufferers?

No. Due to possible cross confirmation, our bakes are not suitable for allergy sufferers.

(5) Are any of your bakes refined sugar-free?

Yes! We love our refined sugar-free range. We believe in offering bakes to all, including those who prefer to avoid refined sugar. Check out our favourite: peanut butter and chocolate traybake (and it’s suitable for paleo diets!)

(6) Why do you use palm oil in some of our bakes?

We strive for sustainability in more than appearance, and in reflecting our business values in our actions. That means constantly evolving and learning the effect of our ingredients on the planet, and its people.

After careful consideration, we have chosen to use small amounts of palm oil in some of our bakes. There is a misconception that boycotting palm oil and substituting another vegetable oil is more eco-friendly.

However, sustainable palm oil is proven to be the most effective crop. According to the WWF, palm oil produces “more oil per land than any other equivalent vegetable crop” and if the world were to replace palm oil production with an alternative like “soybean, coconut, or sunflower oil, you would need anything between 4 and 10 times more land.” (https://www.wwf.org.uk/updates/8-things-know-about-palm-oil).

Furthermore, the production of palm oil contributes to the livelihood of 4.5 million people in Indonesia and Malaysia combined; according to the Palm Oil Alliance (https://palmoilalliance.eu/more-facts/).
We only use RSPO certified palm oil.

The RSPO has stated (https://rspo.org/why-sustainable-palm-oil/):
“Sustainable palm oil has been farmed, processed, distributed, and sold responsibly with strict rules that protect animals, the environment and people who live and work in oil palm producing countries. It has involved:

Halting deforestation;
Treating communities and workers fairly; and
Protecting wildlife and the environment.”

Actually Good is constantly learning, adapting and reevaluating our ingredients to ensure you’re receiving the most eco-friendly (and delicious) bake as possible.

(11) I want to order multiple boxes to different addresses, what should I do?

If you’d like to order multiple boxes to different addresses, you will need to put each order through separately.

(12) Do you offer refunds?

Due to the perishable nature of the goods, we cannot process returns.

If you have a complaint about your order, please let us know within 24 hours of receiving your product. Please provide photographs to help explain why you are unhappy. Any refunds will be issued at our discretion. Note: occasionally, during the courier transit, some cosmetic damage may occur to your bakes.

If you have received an incorrect order, or you’re missing an item, we will credit or refund your purchase.
