Terms and conditions
In-stock items generally ship in 1-2 business days. For items shipping from the manufacturer, estimated processing times are listed on the item’s page. If we do not have enough stock on hand to fulfill your order, we will send you an email notification within 24 business hours. If you have a time constraint on your order, please respond to that email so that our team can work on a solution for you.
Canceling/Modifying an Order
Once your order is placed, we cannot guarantee that it can be modified or canceled. If you wish to modify your order, please contact us as soon as possible. Additionally, we reserve the right to cancel any order.
To ensure our customers’ safety online, all orders go through security checks before we start processing them. Please keep this in mind while ordering, as there may be a slight delay before processing for a small percentage of orders. If additional information is needed to help ensure the order’s validity, we will reach out via email.
Our primary form of communication is email. All order updates will be sent to the email address used when the order was placed. For this reason, please be sure to provide a valid email address when placing your order.
Price Changes and Updates
Pricing on our website are updated constantly. All prices are subject to change without notice. In the rare event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a website error, Toluca Foods will resolve the discrepancy, at our discretion, on all orders placed for the product listed at the incorrect price. This resolution may involve coming to an agreed upon price with the customer or a cancellation of the order, resulting in a full refund.
Receipt of Incorrect Product
If you believe you received the incorrect product, please keep the item(s) unused and in the original packaging and reach out to our Our Sales Department team. They will work with you to reship the correct item or offer a refund. We may require a picture of the incorrect product you received and will cover the cost of return shipping for that item.
Resolution of Disputes
By using this website, you agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Toluca Foods service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Toluca Foods or through medocinospices.com, will be resolved through binding arbitration instead of in court. An exception is that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review or appeal of an arbitration award is very limited. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, and must follow the terms found in Toluca Foods conditions of use just like a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By using any Toluca Foods service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the Commonwealth of Georgia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Toluca Foods.
Registered customers can sign-up for 'Shipment Updates via Text' in their account settings to receive an SMS text message when packages are out for delivery, delivered or encounter a problem. Text messages will be sent for all packages shipped after you complete the sign up process. This service may not be available and/or may not include tracking for packages that are shipped directly from one of our manufacturers.
Text messages may also be sent when there is an urgent need for information to continue to process your order. These situations could include (but are not limited to):
• Payment processing errors
• Expedited order delays
• Confirmation of order details
• Delivery requirements
Accepted Credit Cards (Preferred Method)
All orders must be placed online through our checkout process. We accept all major credit cards including Master Card, Visa, American Express, and Discover. We are able to accept most prepaid credit cards as long as the card has been registered with a billing address. Only a single credit card may be used to process the order.
Alternative Payments (Check, Money Order, ACH, Wire Transfer)
We accept check, money order, ACH, and wire transfers for orders with an order total of $500.00 or greater. The order will be placed on hold until payment has been received.
Once payment is cleared, the order will be released to process for shipment. . Personal checks are processed on Mondays and Thursdays and will be held for 5 business days from when they are processed while they clear. A holding period is not required if a certified check is provided but will still be processed Mondays and Thursdays only. All other alternative payment orders will be released as soon as the payment is received, with a minimum of 1 business day delay to receive payment.
Charges and Authorizations
Your card will be charged in full once the first item(s) on your order ship. When you place an order on our website, an authorization is placed on your bank account for the amount of your order. An authorization is a communication from your bank to our payment system letting us know your card is valid and the required funds are available. These authorizations may show as “pending” on your bank statement until the funds are captured. Once the card is charged for the order, the authorization will drop off from your bank statement, typically within 1-2 business days.
Credit and debit card providers differ in how long they will hold an authorization for a pending transaction. If your order has an extended lead time, a member of our Payments team may reach out requesting to charge the card in advance to avoid losing the authorization. Authorizations and/or pending transactions will hold these funds on your bank account, which can result in overdraft fees. Toluca Foods assumes no liability for fees in the event of such an overdraft.
All pricing is listed in US Dollars ($) on the website. When ordering outside of the United States, the funds captured for an order will be converted to the local currency of the ordering country on your credit card statement. The rate of exchange is locked in when your order ships, not when the order is placed. Credit card companies may also charge a currency conversion fee. Please contact your card issuer for further details.
We are unable to accept Purchase Orders as a form of payment since we update our pricing in real time and do not rely on quoted prices. All orders must be placed online and paid for in full at the time of purchase.
Sales tax will be charged on orders shipping to the state of Georgia.

Best By Date Policy
Our shelf stable food and beverage products are designed for commercial use and would typically be shipped 1-3 months before the best by date. The exact remaining suggested shelf life will vary by item due to the nature of each product and may be shorter with items that require refrigeration.
Image Color Policy
Our Images Department makes every effort to portray the color of an item as accurately as possible on our site. However, depending on your monitor settings, the color of an item may appear different than in person. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the color displayed on your monitor.
Certain types of products, such as textiles and fabrics, are subject to dye lot variations inherent to their manufacturing process. If you are trying to match an existing product in your possession, please contact us and we will accommodate your request to the best of our ability.
We try to provide the most accurate images of our products as possible. However, some product images prove difficult or impossible to obtain. In these cases, we will use the closest representative image we can find for the product. These representative, illustrative images may show optional accessories or features, or may be an image of a similar product.
Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read the product description and other related product literature such as Specification Sheets, SDS Sheets, etc., before placing your order. If you have any questions or concerns about a product after reading the description and product literature, please contact us.
At Toluca Foods we try very hard to always have the lowest prices. If you find a lower price from one of our competitors, including delivery, please bring it to our attention with our contact us form. We will do our best to beat the advertised price.
