Rationale

Friars Pride is an independent family owned company, established over 40 years ago in Peterborough. The company has a heritage stretching back to 1898 and the manufacturing and refining of fats and oils. They have grown to become a premier supplier with a fleet of almost 60 vehicles delivering from Yorkshire, to the South West of England

The old websites featured was based on Magento 1 for the Ecommerce linked to a non responsive WordPress site. With increased  mobile usage the user experience was poor making it difficult to identify and select product.  As a market leading food supplier to the UK’s fish and chip and fast food providers the website didn’t come close to reflecting its heritage or credibility.

We have worked with Andrew and the Blue Dolphin team for many years. They work passionately to deliver projects on time. They have successfully completed WordPress Website and Magento Ecommerce projects for us, developing functionality to match with Friars Pride operating approaches
