Right guys. We recently had some great news, followed by some terrible news.
Great news - my visa got approved for Australia (not a huge surprise as my wife is Australian, but was much quicker than expected).
Terrible news - Huel don’t deliver to Australia
Now I’m an avid Hueler - shakes / hot and savoury - I’m all in. It has had a huge impact on the quality of my life. I used to spend years struggling with my weight, struggling to eat healthily and struggling to keep my energy levels up as I swang between everyday meals. No more since Huel and I’ve never looked back.
In summary, I’m simply not willing to give up Huel and will do whatever it takes (legally) to get it there. If that means setting up my own business to import it for personal use, ordering 3 months in advance to give it time to get through customs, asking me parents to ship me regular 10 kilo shipments etc, then I’m all in.
So my question to fellow Huelers and Huel themselves is - why exactly does Huel not ship to Australia? Is there a particular ingredient the authorities take potential exception to and, if so, is it within every product? Alternatively, is it that the product isn’t prohibited, but more that it’s a huge headache with massive delays trying to work with customs? Are there differences when travelling and importing for personal use (as others seem to have managed when bribing it on the plane) versus larger shipments sent via courier?
Thanks all. If anyone wants to join me on this mission then I’d love to have you along! We’ve a few months on our hands before flying so going to put my all into finding a way to make this work!
