FAQs – Unrefined Bars


APRIL 2024 UPDATE - We had hoped to launch our new range this month but due to supply chain issues for one of the main ingredients we use it is unclear when production will be able to commence. Our current estimate is that our range will be available in July 2024, but it could be longer. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

Why Unrefined?

Check out this blog post for the ethos behind our brand and the reason for our name, Unrefined Bars. 

Are your products made in the UK?

Yes! All our products are made at a bakery in North Yorkshire.

Do you ship outside of the UK?

No, currently we only ship within the UK. 

How will my order be shipped?

By default all orders will be shipped with tracked Royal Mail 48.  Royal Mail 48 delivers in 2-3 business days from point of shipping. 

Can I track my order?

Currently orders are sent with Royal Mail and are not trackable. 

Can I pay more for next day delivery?

Yes, please tick the DPD option for next day delivery (this option costs £4.99). Note your order must be received before 12pm to qualify for next day delivery. 

How much are your shipping costs?

Orders under £14 : £2.49

Orders £20- £30 : £2.99

Orders over £30: FREE 

Are your products Organic?

No, our products are not Organic. However, many of our individual ingredients are Organic. Specifically, our Cacao Butter, Cacao Powder, Coconut Sugar, Creamed Coconut, Coconut Syrup and Coconut Oil. 

Are your products Gluten Free?


Are your products Vegan?

Yes. Although please note, our products are produced on a site that handles eggs and milk so there is a small risk of dairy traces within our products. 

Are your products nut-free?

No, all our products either contain nuts (Almond Butter Oat Bar, Peanut & Raspberry Oat Bar, Carrot Cake Oat Bar) or are produced on a site that handles nuts (Cacao & Vanilla Oat Bar).

Do your products contain palm oil?

No, none of our products contain palm oil. 

Is your packaging recyclable?

No, our bars are wrapped in a plastic that is not currently recyclable. We are hoping to move to a recyclable film by the end of 2023. We have not done this already for the following reasons:

  • A number of packaging films marketed as recyclable actually require specific recycling which is not available to many UK households (i.e. you would have to drive to a recycling centre rather than put the wrapper in your green bin). We want to make sure our move to a more sustainable film would actually help environmentally rather than simply allow us to say our wrappers are "recyclable", and we are looking into this currently.  
  • By nature most recyclable films are less durable than standard plastic films, this means that the shelf life of the products contained within is often reduced. As Unrefined Bars use no additives/artificial preservatives and are a small start up (therefore with often unpredictable sales), moving to such films may mean more of our products end up not being eaten before their best before date, therefore contributing to food waste. We have to be mindful of the net impact of moving to such films in order to make sure our move is positive for the environment overall, and this is something we are looking into currently. 

The outer boxes our products come in are cardboard and fully recyclable.
