Order schedule / 2016
« Last post by Wendy on October 23, 2015, 10:20:35 PM »
Here are the order deadlines for 2016. With the formation of the new Gouveia group, we're moving to monthly ordering for 2016, each group taking it in turn. Order deadlines are always the last Sunday of the month, except around Christmas and New Year. While we would hope to keep to this schedule, circumstances closer to the time may dictate otherwise. In any case, all members will receive emails informing them of upcoming order deadlines.

January 3rd 2016 ... Benfeita group. Orders to

January 31st ... Gouveia group. Orders to

February 28th ... Barril group. Orders to

March 27th ... Benfeita group. Orders to

April 24th ... Gouveia group. Orders to

May 29th ... Barril group. Orders to

June 26th ... Benfeita group. Orders to

July 31st ... Gouveia group. Orders to

August 28th ... Barril group. Orders to

September 25th ... Benfeita group. Orders to

October 30th ... Pre-Christmas order - Gouveia group. Orders to
                                 and               - Barril group. Orders to

There will be no end-November order as delivery would fall foul of the Christmas holidays. We'll monitor order volumes through the year and reassess nearer the time but at present levels, both groups scheduled for an October order should have little difficulty meeting their minimum order values.
Information - PLEASE READ! / Another new group for the coop
« Last post by Wendy on October 23, 2015, 12:10:36 AM »
The coop has continued to grow and both groups are now handling orders of around £4,000 every 6 weeks, so we're very happy to be able to announce the formation of a new group within the coop centred around Gouveia. From the New Year (2016) we will be moving to monthly orders, rotating between the 3 groups. At this point we're probably generating enough demand to be able to accommodate another group, so if there are any members who aren't particularly close to any of our groups (eg. Tábua area) who might be interested in setting up their own group, please get in touch. The idea would be to order no more frequently than monthly, but the 2 groups furthest away from each other would order at the same time.

All that's necessary for a new group to form is a sufficient number of local members to guarantee the £1,500 minimum per pallet every 3 months, volunteer(s) to collate and process the order and handle the payment to Essential, and volunteers to take delivery and divide everything up into the individual orders.

The order has arrived, has been sorted and is ready for collection tomorrow, 22nd October. People with large orders, Wayne and Nicole can put it on their tractor to take it up their track to the roadside, but only if it's tomorrow. Please text Nicole with your name and collection time on 925 344 548.

The last payments were received over the weekend and the bill has now been paid. The order is being despatched today. We'll hear nothing further until we either get a few hours' notice of delivery (if we're lucky ...) or the order just turns up.

All bills have now gone out. If you haven't yet paid, please check your email and send your payment immediately. The order is now waiting for despatch but can't be sent until everyone has paid.

Out of stocks substitutions have now been made and the order is closed to all further additions. One final invoice is expected in tomorrow, but the majority of bills will be going out tonight.

The order has now been submitted to Essential. If you forgot something you're desperate for, one or two additions can be made while we're sorting the out-of-stocks, provided they're not too heavy. (Heavy items go at the bottom of the pallet and pallets can't be repacked once loaded.)

Hi all,
The only available *organic* carob powder comes in 25kilo bags from Italy. It costs 55sterling. Are there a few people interested in smaller amounts? Such good stuff healthwise and delicious.
Bulk ordering of other stuff / Re: Organic chicken food

Hi Leen. That was over 2 years ago. Since nobody ever replied to this message, it was never followed up. I also discovered Jo and Dave were ordering the same food through another route. I don't know if they still are.
