What Carr’s flour products can I purchase?

Flour available to order online is listed within our ‘shop’.

What is a minimum order?

In order to ensure efficiencies for orders there is a minimum order of 7 single products or one case (ranging between 7-12 products).

What is the postage cost?

We charge a flat rate £3 shipping cost per case. Delivery to the Scottish Highlands & Islands, Northern Ireland, Eire, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Isle of Scilly and Isle of Wight will be subject to a surcharge for delivery, which is stated when you submit your order.

What if I live in Northern Ireland, EIRE or a remote area?
We are subject to the additional charges applied by the courier company to deliver to postcodes deemed further afield. As a company, we are very keen to support home bakers throughout the UK and so we do absorb some of the additional shipping costs but regretfully we have to pass the remainder on to the customer. The additional delivery surcharge to remote areas is £6.The remote areas are defined by our third party courier as: Scottish Highlands & Islands, Northern Ireland, Eire, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly and Isle of Wight will usually take a few extra working days from dispatch.
