5. Food Ingredients, Allergies and Content
For offerings available on the BMF Platform, the Home-kitchen preparing the meal provides a list of ingredients.
However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or real-time updates of this information, and we acknowledge that
kitchens may make changes to the meal ingredients without our knowledge. For this reason, we kindly request that
you directly contact the relevant Kitchen for information regarding allergens, ingredients, or the source of raw
You can find the contact details in the kitchen details section on the BMF app.
Offerings promoted on the platform are prepared and packaged by kitchens in compliance with the requirements of the National Food Agency (Swedish: Livsmedelsverket). Neither BMF nor BMF's personnel are involved in the preparation of meals or their ingredients.
When orders come from Hobby Chefs, BMF cannot guarantee the compliance of such kitchens with the local health and
safety regulations. The platform clearly distinguishes between registered and unregistered kitchens to provide
you with the necessary information. It's entirely the user's choice where to place their order.
Food from kitchens is intended to be consumed immediately upon pick-up or delivery, unless expressly stated otherwise. BMF is not responsible for the meal's quality if consumed at a later time.

Kitchens have the ability to upload photos and images of the food they offer on the app. It is their responsibility to ensure that these images do not infringe upon copyright or feature watermarked or copyrighted content owned by others. Additionally, any content and images uploaded by kitchens to app become the property of BookMyFood, and as an app, we reserve the right to use this content for our marketing and promotional purposes.
We also reserve the right to remove any images that are offensive or unrelated to food or customer experiences.
Picking up your order
You are responsible for promptly collecting your order from the kitchen's location, within the designated time frame as indicated in the BookMyFood application. It's worth noting that you can either collect your order from the kitchen's provided address or a designated pickup point, as mentioned by the kitchen at the offering level on the app.
The kitchen determines the specific pickup window. Upon arrival, you should present your BMF order confirmation or provide your name to the kitchen staff to receive your order.
If you fail to collect your order within the specified time frame, the kitchen reserves the right to decide how to handle the ordered food item.
