Update due to Covid-19

We are taking all the necessary precautions to keep ourselves safe, in-turn keeping our warehouse environment sanitised to afford safe and healthy working conditions.

We are still operating and have good stock levels, but with a reduced workforce, consequently orders may be a little slower to be dispatched.

Our Couriers and Carriers are working long hours to ensure pallets and parcels are being delivered, both for the UK and EU

Thank you for your understanding and support - Be Well from the Zest-it Team.

!We have made available a Biocidal Cleaner and Sanitiser.
