Sourcing, Recipe and Weekly Menu Inquiries
Sun Basket's sourcing philosophies are rooted in the detail, care and footwork put into finding the best ingredients for their boxes. Chef Justine helped build the strong relationships Sun Basket developed with farmers and purveyors around the country. These types of close relationships help direct the brand's strong commitment to supporting responsible, sustainable and premium farms. For more information about farms Sun Basket partners with, click this link.
Ingredients: Sun Basket is committed to providing the best clean food from suppliers with sustainable and humane practices. For more information about our organic sourcing practices, check this link.
Recipes and Weekly Menus: Customers can find out what is included in the weekly menus on the Sun Basket website. Recipes are also provided. The mobile app is a great resource for recipe cards and cooking tips. Do advise the customer to download it to get access to great recipes on the go.
When cooking with Sun Basket, customers will have all the ingredients they need to cook healthy, delicious meals. In addition to the ingredients, customers will need to stock a few cooking essentials such as salt, olive or sunflower oil, a spatula and basic pots and pans.
Enjoy the gift of giving

They need to sign into their Sun Basket account and click the Earn $40 tab at the top or visit www.sunbasket.com/refer-a-friend to get their personal link. This link is then sent to friends either on Facebook, Twitter or via email. Sun Basket sends a notification email when your friend completes their first order.

How can I schedule my delivery when going out of town? Where can I find the nutrition information for next week’s meals? As a Sun Basket Expert, you can help answer these types of questions.
Skip a delivery: Got a holiday planned? Since the service is subscription-based, customers will receive a Basket each week unless they skip or cancel a delivery. To skip a week, go to Schedule and change to your preferred date. You will not be charged when you skip a week prior to the weekly cut off. The weekly cut off is Wednesday 12 pm PST/ 3 pm EST.
Managing Account Settings and Subscriptions
You can help customers change their meal plan and manage their weekly deliveries. Guide them to click on the menu in the upper right, click on My Account , and click Edit to update information accordingly.
There will be fun promotions and offers happening all year round. Always check the Knowledge tab in your app for updates and the latest information to ensure you can help other customers.
You can help the customer out when their order has arrived late. First, you would need to let the customer know that the delivery can arrive until 20:00 of the day it is expected to arrive mentioned by the courier and if it does not arrive to contact again.
If the customer contacts again stating that their order arrived late, different scenarios would apply depending on how delayed their order was. If it was one day late you let the customer know 1 week of free shipping credit will be applied. If 2 days late then 2 weeks of free shipping credit. If it has been 3 or more days, then the full credit will be applied to the account.
Note – When responding to these queries there will be relevant ‘Response Codes’. It is important they are coded correctly as this will impact what credit the customer will receive.
Full Box Damaged
When boxes are in transit there is a possibility that the box may become damaged in transit. If a customer contacts claiming that their box is damaged, you can advise the customer that a full credit will be applied to their account.
For any queries related to damaged produce inside the boxes please FORWARD these queries.
Customers may give some negative feedback about a product or a service. Always remember to be emphatic with the customer and take the appropriate action.
If a customer is contacting about the quality of a product in their box this would need to be forwarded to the Sun Basket team, along with any feedback where the customer mentions that they are going to contact regulatory bodies. Please add a note stating this when forwarding the query.
However, if the customer is giving feedback about a recipe or down to the service availability you can respond to these with the appropriate template.
There will also be queries where customers give positive feedback on how great Sun Basket is!
Change Delivery Day
If a customer needs to change their delivery date of their order, they can do this up to 24 hours before their next delivery date is due. They can do this by going onto this page - https://sunbasket.com/service-availability.
