Magento Development: Digital Solutions for Brands in the Food & Beverage Industry

Magento’s (Adobe Commerce) extensive customization capabilities allow for creating unique, engaging online stores that cater specifically to the diverse preferences of food and beverage consumers. Over the years, we’ve collaborated with multiple brands in the industry to help manage and enhance their Magento stores. 

Projects launched for Läderach, Monthly Clubs, Monin, Baked by Melissa, and Greatlife demonstrate how our proactive approach to Magento development and maintenance and strategic migrations to PWA or Hyvä has paved the way for their success. They’ve been able to offer compelling, seamless, customer-centric online experiences that contribute to business growth.

The challenge

Today’s shoppers expect quick, easy-to-use websites. A slow or complicated site can make them leave before buying anything. Moreover, when moving to a new online platform or updating an existing one, brands risk losing data or experiencing operational downtime, leading to lost sales and customer dissatisfaction.

Our clients from the Food and Beverage sector faced several obstacles related to website performance, functionality, and user-friendliness that stifled their ability to expand and connect with customers.

Our approach

The following five case studies highlight tailored solutions to these challenges, focusing on strategic platform migrations, custom functionality development, and user interface enhancements. We helped our clients to overcome these barriers and enhance their website performance and customer engagement.

Case study 1: Streamlining Läderach’s eCommerce on Magento+Hyvä

Läderach is a Swiss chocolate manufacturer celebrated for its exquisite offerings and widespread distribution across over 50 countries. Our collaboration was established to migrate Läderach’s fragmented ecosystem at the time to Magento (Adobe Commerce), leveraging the modern Hyvä theme for a comprehensive redesign.

The project entailed extensive custom coding, frontend logic refinements, and ERP integration, ensuring the new platform’s stability, speed, scalability, and adaptability for future growth.

Project highlights

  • Simplified eCommerce build that is scalable and easy to manage

  • eCommerce architecture optimization and user experience improvements aligned with Läderach’s new store concept
  • Optimized website performance, reaching a 93 PageSpeed score for the homepage and PDP on desktop and a 99 score for the PLP on desktop; all green Core Web Vitals for both desktop and mobile
  • Improvements in KPIs after the Hyvä upgrade
    • +25.5% average engagement time
    • +4.5% engaged sessions per user
    • +47.8% conversions
    • +52.9% total users
    • +39% revenue

The project also included new backend functionalities to ease SEO and CMS management, streamline content updates, and maintain consistent styling. By introducing gift cards and DotDigital integration for lead generation, Läderach enhanced its marketing suite, further engaging customers and driving sales.

The transformation of Läderach’s eCommerce system into a cohesive Magento solution, enhanced with Hyvä efficiency, resulted in a significantly improved online store and superior customer experience, setting a new benchmark and flexible foundation for the company’s future strategy.

While they have a significant physical presence, the majority of their business is driven through eCommerce. Recognizing the potential to enhance customer engagement and repeat business, Baked by Melissa wanted to implement a customized events calendar reminder system on their Magento platform.

The primary goal was to develop an events calendar that allows customers to save important dates, such as birthdays and anniversaries, and receive timely email notifications to order cupcakes for their celebrations. This functionality was built on Magento Commerce, incorporating event registry features with bespoke designs and templates tailored to Baked by Melissa’s branding and user experience requirements.

Project highlights
