The Foods of Athenry are primary producers of 'free from' food. Siobhan and her team produce cereals, bars, cakes and other delicious things free from gluten, wheat, dairy, egg and cater to lots of restricted nutritional needs. Siobhán needed both an online shop solution that would allow advanced filtering by each of the free from attributes and their combinations as well as the ability to list and manage stockists, distributors and display her own recipes and blog posts.
We developed a solution using the Joomla content management system, leveraging the Virtuemart online shop extension. We configured an advanced custom filtering extension to manage the task of filtering the products by all combinations and permutations of the eight 'free from' attributes needed. We rolled out a new super-fast modern template which is also responsive to small screen devices, looking great on smartphones, tablets and large screens. With some spectacular photography both in the shop area and in the content areas, the final solution looks superb.
