FAQ

General Information:

What is Gourmetto? :

Gourmetto is a company whose goal is to make home deliveries of Italian gastronomic products. Gourmetto’s target is to create a bridge between the producer and the consumer so that people in Luxembourg can enjoy food products that are realized by small-scale producers and that do not pass through large food distribution networks and retailers. This translates into a choice of very traditional and high quality products just waiting to be delivered at your door and be experienced by you.

The benefits of such a service are wide-ranging:

  • From the consumer point of view, Gourmetto allows you to taste artisanal gastronomic products. They are flavourful, healthy and also ethically and environmentally sustainable since they have been realized in the utmost respect of the Italian gastronomic culture and tradition.
  • From the producer point of view, Gourmetto exclusively works with Italian agribusinesses, usually family-owned or cooperatively managed. Promoting these little businesses is essential to help preserve the cultural, social and economic heritage of the Italian countryside. Especially in these times of heavy urban migration, where young Italians do not have many incentives to remain in the country and learn traditional agricultural jobs.

How does Gourmetto work?

Gourmetto manages all its orders and deliveries via this e-commerce platform: www.gourmetto.lu. We have one truck per month, which brings our freshly made products from all over Italy. The delivery dates are always from Monday to Saturday, from the morning to the evening, depending on product availability, however customer are always welcome to contact us to arrange special deliveries.  Most of our products are available for delivery all the time, however some need to be enjoyed very fresh, like mozzarella, those products are available only during the monthly “Mozzaweek”.

Products:

Is the freshness of the products guaranteed?

Yes it is. We rigorously respect the cold chain, our warehouse is equipped with refrigerators and all our deliveries are carried out in insulated boxes or refrigerated van.

The label of this product is only in Italian. How can I check ingredients, allergens and storage information?

That can happen, some of our producers are so small they cannot provide labels in other languages. However, all our products have all the ingredients’ information (including allergens) and storage instructions on their details page in our web store, all translated in English and French. Anyway, if you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

What kind of suppliers do you work with? Are they mostly small-scale producers?

Absolutely. We work almost exclusively with small-scale producers. Even the larger producers we work with have to share our vision and values on food quality, gastronomic tradition and land sustainability.

Why is a specific item I ordered last time not available anymore?

Gourmetto is constantly looking to improve its service and the quality of its products. If we discover a new product, better than what we are currently having, we will not hesitate to make the switch, so that we can continue to provide to our customers only the best of Italian food.

Some other products are heavily seasonal and are not always available.

It is also possible that an item simply went temporarily out of stock, or that our supplier stopped producing it, and thus we had to take it out of our catalogue.

Could you add to your catalogue a specific product that I really enjoy ?

We gladly accept any kind of suggestion from our customers and if you think that there is any product that is missing from our offer, just inform us about it. We will do our best to find a suitable supplier to work with.

Why is the weight of the item that I ordered different from the indicated weight on the website?

Several of our products, including deli meats and cheese, are handmade or portioned directly by the producers.  We receive many pieces with sizes and weights that can differ from one another. On our website, we will always indicate if a product has an approximate weight and show a lower than average value. We then try to deliver only the pieces bigger than that so that you always get what you paid for, if not more.

It can nevertheless happen that sometimes some pieces go slightly below the indicated weight. If that happens, do not hesitate to get back to us, and we will do our best to make up for our mistake by compensating you as you see fit.

For what items can I exercise my right of withdrawal?

The right of withdrawal applies only to non-fresh products that are non-perishable in the short term. It is not possible to return items that have a short life (such as mozzarella and other fresh cheeses) or that have been opened after the delivery.

 

Nevertheless, most of our products are artisanal, and can sometimes have a defect. If you are not satisfied with a product you ordered and would like to return it or simply ask for a refund, you can file a complaint at the email address: order@gourmetto.lu. We invite you to share with us as much information as possible explaining the reason for your complaint. You can also add pictures to show us the nature of the problem.  We take every complaint very seriously in order to always improve our services. We will get back to you as soon as possible to make up for the inconvenience and compensate you in the way that you see fit.
