Why don't you ship to my country?
If you're not in Australia or New Zealand, we can't ship our products to you just yet. If you have any friends or family in Australia, you can always send it to their address then get them to forward it onto you. Make sure to check with the customs of your country as these vary a lot and we'd hate for your order to get sent back to your friend! (Although they'd probably love it)
Are customs duties and VAT / GST payable for New Zealand deliveries?
Different countries have different rules for the importation of products.
This may mean that you are liable for customs charges, taxes including VAT or GST and brokerage costs. In the event that an order is assessed for customs duties and taxes to be charged it will be held and either the relevant Customs Authorities or our customer service team will be in contact to advise on the required process.
These charges are the responsibility of the recipient and we will not reimburse customers for these import costs or provide a refund or credit for any order if a customer refuses to pay them or accept delivery. It also may not be possible to return the goods if payment is refused as they will become the property of the relevant customs authority.If you need to make a larger order then please contact our customer service team to discuss possible arrangements.
Why is there a re-delivery fee on my parcel?
If this is a mistake or error on our behalf, we will get in touch to confirm your address and contact details and re-send your parcel without charge.
Where the return of the parcel was as a result of something we weren’t responsible for, such as it wasn’t picked up from the post office or it had the wrong address on it, we need to charge a re-delivery to account for the additional shipping costs to get the parcel to.
The re-delivery fee is $12 in Australia and accounts for the cost of Australia Post returning the parcel to us plus the resending of the parcel to you.
For international orders, the re-delivery fee is $35 that accounts for the cost of the international couriers returning the parcel to us plus the resending of the parcel to you.
Our customer service team will be in touch if your parcel is returned to us to ensure it arrives at its intended destination, quickly, safely and with love.
Can I select Authority to Leave for my delivery
Yes, you can select Authority to Leave when you go through the online checkout as a shipping option. However, it is our strong preference that you sign for your parcel to ensure it is received safely as we don’t like missing parcels either.
We don’t accept liability for parcels that go missing after being delivered to your address where Authority to Leave (or safe drop) has been selected. That’s why we recommend Signature on Delivery (our default option) as that’s the only way to ensure you will receive your parcel and it won’t go missing.
As an alternative, we recommend another delivery address, such as a business address to ensure the parcel arrives safely at its destination.
Deliveries over $70 in value will automatically require a signature on receipt.
Australia Post as a matter of policy will take a photo of the location where the parcel is dropped to prove delivery has occurred. It’s unfortunate but sometimes we have to deal with scammers as well :(
Can I change my shipping address?
If you’ve added a home address and need to change it to a work address or similar, get in touch as soon as you realise by calling 02 9558 3300 Monday - Thursday, 8am - 4pm Sydney time or emailing our customer service team at email@example.com.
We will try our best to change your address before our shipping team get there hands on it and it leaves the warehouse. However once they have shipped it, we cannot make any changes from our end.
We recommend trying to change your delivery address with Australia Post through their delivery options page here. [https://auspost.com.au/delivery-options]
Charges may apply for this service and make sure that you use the same email address as on your order to ensure that any address change can be processed with them.
My mail redirection or delivery instructions were not followed?
We try our best to accommodate shipping requests in our ordering process or through services that are offered by our delivery contractors. However, we cannot offer any guarantees that they will be followed.
We recommend that you double-check your address at the checkout and if appropriate, select an alternate address such as a business address where you can accept your delivery.
We will not be responsible for replacing items or extra costs if a redirection has not been successful, or the delivery contractor has not followed the delivery instructions given. If an item is returned to us, a re-delivery fee will be payable to resend the items to you.
If you are moving, please update your address details in your account online otherwise please contact customer service before you move to ensure a current order has the updated address details to minimise delays.
I've placed my order, what happens now?
After you've placed your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order including the delivery address and the products you've ordered.
We generally ship our parcels on the next business day after you have placed an order. However, during busy periods including sales, this may take up to 48 hours as our shipping team works to get all parcels and deliveries out.
Please note: If you order on a Friday, your products will be sent out the following Monday. Australia Post do not operate over the weekend or on Australian public holidays. Please keep this in mind when waiting for your order to arrive.
Once your order has been carefully packed, it's picked up by Australia Post, you will receive a dispatch confirmation email once this has happened. This confirms that your order has left us and is on its way to your door.
Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive an email from us with a link to see where your parcel is up to. This is sent as a separate email to the one you get from us. If the tracking link does not register right away, just give it some time to be checked in. You will be able to see your order moving through the parcel

Refunds or Exchanges

We will be in touch as soon as we find out what has happened and work out how we can make it up to you :)
All you need to know about our ingredients and baking our products
Are your products sugar free?
We don't add sugar to any of our products!
We use the best natural sweeteners instead.
You can check out all the ingredients for each product here: https://lovepbco.com/shop/
You may see a small amount of sugars in the nutrition panel of each product. These are naturally occurring sugars found in the natural ingredients we use which we cannot remove.
But given how low carb our products are, we don't really need too :)
What baking paper should I use?
It's really important that you use the right type of baking paper when making our products. Often, cheaper baking papers can leave your products sticking to the pan or give you a result that you're not entirely happy with.
And do not use greaseproof paper. It is not baking paper :)
We have tested the following Baking Paper with our products .
Glad - Baking Paper, Multix Baking Paper, Coles Baking Paper, Woolworths Baking Paper
Happy baking :)
What is the difference between Net carbs vs Total Carbs?
In Australia & New Zealand, the Total Carbohydrates value in the Nutrition Information Panel excludes Fibre. So you don’t need to deduct the fibre (or anything!) from the Carbohydrate total. This is also known as Net Carbs in the USA.
For example, if a label says:
Carbohydrates 5g of net carbs, of which;
Sugars 2 g
Dietary Fibre 4 g
The total carbs listed on the label is the available carbs which is the 5g and this is the value to include in your daily carb count (if tracking macro's). This figure does not include the fibre of 4 g.
The fibre content listed on all Nutrition Information Panels (NIP) in Australia and New Zealand (including our Nutrition panel) under Dietary Fibre is a combination of Insoluble Fibre and Soluble Fibre.
For more information on Net carbs vs Total Carbs, check out our blog - https://lovepbco.com/net-carbs-and-total-carbs/
What is Lupin Flour?
Lupin is a type of legume belonging to the same plant family as peas and peanuts.
Lupins are the world’s richest natural source of combined protein and dietary fibre. Comprising 40% protein and 37% fibre, lupins are also a great source of minerals, contain prebiotic fibre, and are also gluten-free.
We source our lupin flour from Lupins for Life in southern New South Wales in Australia using specially bred lupin varieties that meet our manufacturing and product requirements.
You can learn more about why we love using Lupin Flour here - https://lovepbco.com/what-is-lupin/
What whey protein do you use?
When we use whey protein in our products, we use the best which is an Australian grass-fed whey protein from sourced from dairies in Warrnambool, Victoria. We are proud to source our whey proteins locally as they are the cleanest whey proteins available on the market.
There are alternatives that many manufacturers use (especially in the protein supplement space) including whey proteins from the USA however they include growth hormones such as rbST that are not acceptable in our clean, natural products.
If we won't eat it, why would we sell it!
For more information click here - https://lovepbco.com/why-we-use-australian-whey-protein-in-our-protein-bread/
Does your nutrition panel (macro's) include the eggs and milk?
It really helps to know what you are eating and how it helps you achieve your nutrition goals.
That's why we go above and beyond what the Food Standards in Australia New Zealand ask for and break down our nutrition panel as follows:
Nutrients - This is the nutrient breakdown including protein, carbohydrates and fats
Quantity per serving - This is per serve of the product made as directed. This includes milk, eggs and other ingredients included in the recipe on the pouch.
Quantity per 100g of finished product - Although not compulsory, we have included this line as it helps many customers understand the % of proteins, carbs and fats they can include as part of their daily intake. We're proud of the nutrition of our products and how they help everyone achieve better health
Quantity per 100 g of dry mix - This column really helps to show how amazing our products and ingredients are without anything else added :) So eat with confidence that you're helping power a better you!
When it comes to nutrition, we're proud of what we're giving to our community because its food we want to eat as well :)
I have an allergy to an ingredient in one of your products?
We know that allergies can be an absolute pain. That’s why it’s super important to look at all the ingredients for each product to ensure that they are right for you.
You will see on every product page the following breakdown of the allergens in each product.
As an example, we’re using the allergen statement for our Protein Muffin Mix and under Ingredients, you will find the following disclosure.
CONTAINS LUPIN AND TREE NUTS
May contain milk, eggs and sesame.
This disclosure across all our products is exactly the same as on our packaging and compliant with the standards set under Food Standards Australia New Zealand.
As we disclose all our allergens across all products both on our packaging and our website, we cannot refund or exchange products if they are not right for you.
What we recommend is to make amazing healthy baked goodies for family and friends to bring them on the health journey you are already on :)
Do you use Australian ingredients?
We source the majority of ingredients from Australian farms first because there is nothing cleaner and greener than locally grown. We use Australian ingredients wherever possible however sometimes there simply isn't enough Australian produce available which means we need to source it from other farms that adhere to our strict quality standards. You will find the local Australian origin of many of our ingredients on our pouches.
We're proud of the ingredients we use because, at the end of the day, we eat and love our products knowing they are helping to fuel our success.
If you want to find out more, get in touch with our awesome customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are an ingredient supplier and would love to talk to you.
Thanks for reaching out.
Our innovation team is always on the hunt for new and innovative ingredients. Please note, our preference is to use Australian grown ingredients wherever possible.
If you are interested in working with us, the next steps would be to email through an ingredient/product listing or specification sheets along with the ingredient/product application to email@example.com
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
What is your packaging made from?
Our packaging is made from over 50% paper with the lining of the pouches made from very fine sheet of PET plastic.
As our products contain ingredients that may have a higher fat content, this lining prevents rancidity in these ingredients, as well as the transmission of odours and moisture into the packaging.
Is your packaging recyclable?
At this stage, no.
As a business, we care deeply about the environment and sutainability in the way that encompasses every touch point of the manufacturing and production of our products.
Unfortunately, when it comes to packaging, there is no standard in Australia for the recycling of flexible packaging, and the vast majority of this type ends up in land fill.
With this in mind, we have taken the steps in our pouches to minimise the actual production of plastic in the first place.
What that means is that our pouches are guaranteed to include over 50% paper (we've pulled them part - they're around 70% paper) which means that we're doing our bit for the environment.
Rest assured, we're keep an eye out for the next steps in recyclable packaging and how that impacts what we put our products in.
That means we are working towards the recyclable packaging standards of CEFLEX, a European initiative between regulators and manufacturers that are coming into force and expected to be widely used by the food industry.
So watch this space and if you have any questions about our packaging, get in touch.
What does sustainability look like in PBCo.
There are a range of ways that we seek to make our business as sustainable as possible (and also low touch environmentally):
> Recycling all waste product to be used by farmers
> Solar panels on the roof of our facility to generate clean / green power
> Working with suppliers who practice sustainability themselves
> Buying local Australian grown ingredients where possible to reduce the miles that these products make
> Minimising the generation of new plastic where possible through our majority paper based packaging.
> Energy efficient lighting and systems throughout our warehouse.
But it's not just the big things, we take small but simple steps throughout our business everyday :)
Do you support charities?
Yes we do.
The biggest recipient of our donations is Ozharvest, where we have contributed over $50,000 in food to support the amazing work they do in a range of communities.
We also work with a range of initiatives that support better for you products and healthier lifestyles.
We are passionate about supporting people to change their lives for the better through the food they eat and our giving program recognises and supports this.
