    I have made a claim and got compensation from customs but that was nearly 10 years ago.

    As I can no longer find the info perhaps they use the US model now where compensation is only paid if damage is caused by negligence of their staff
    Not if the damage is caused by their normal inspection methods.

    So this arrived today. Only 11 weeks from when it was ordered.

    None of the bags where opened, still with the original seals intact, but 2 were no longer under vacuum but that could have been a packing issue.

    At least they arrived, eventually...

    It's a wonder Bio security didn't send you notification that the goods were being held, that's their normal MO unless that got lost in the post.

    They will normally Pierce the bottom of the bag enough to get a bit dust and cover the hole with a piece of clear tape.
