1.  Introduction

L’Autruche (African Ostrich Products) pride ourselves on providing Premium quality, 100% organic & Halal products.  This Policy applies in relation to purchases made on L’Autruche (African Ostrich Products) Website, and is to be read in conjunction with our Terms & Conditions .  Unless otherwise specified in this Policy, any capitalised terms defined in the Terms have the meaning set out in the Terms.

2.  Faulty/defective products

Due to the perishable nature of the products we sell as well as for food safety concerns, we do not accept returns for change of mind or returns due to the manner in which you have cooked or prepared our products. 

In the event that you are not satisfied with any part of a product purchased from us, contact us at info@lautruche.org within one (1) day of the date that you received the product with the following details:

  • Order Number, Description and Reason for Return;
  • Photographs of the fault or defect including evidence that the product is a L’Autruche (African Ostrich Products) product (e.g. the delivery invoice or packaging should be in the photograph); and
  • Proof of purchase in the form of your purchase confirmation email, order invoice or original receipt.

If an item is faulty, wrongly described, incorrect or otherwise in breach of Egyptian Consumer Law, then we will fulfil our legal obligations, which may include refunding the purchase price and delivery charges, or providing a replacement product, provided that the unsatisfactory product is returned within a reasonable time and accompanied by the details set out above.

We can assist you with your return of a faulty item, provided that upon assessment by us:

  • the product is considered faulty or in breach of Egyptian Consumer Law; or
  • the product is considered to hold a manufacturing fault or defect; or
  • the product varies significantly to the product description and/or images; or
  • the product delivered is incorrect and is not the item that was ordered.

3.  Returns process

If an item is found to be defective or faulty, you will be instructed to dispose of the product and we will provide with a replacement, refund or online store credit on the faulty item (at your election). In some cases, we may require you to return a defective or faulty item by delivery facilities in which case we will provide you with instructions to do so.

Please note that we may not be able to offer a replacement or exchange on some Products if there is no longer stock available. 

4.  Refund Tender


  • If you are entitled to a refund, your refund will be returned in the same manner as the original payment method. For purchases made by credit or debit card, the cardholder and the same credit or debit card are required to process the refund as was originally used for the purchase.
