We’re super excited to share the news that innovative new grocery business and Callia Web client, Cambridge Food Collective have made the finals of the Cambridge Digital Awards. The team bagged an impressive two nominations in the ‘Website: Lifestyle & Culture’ and ‘Website: Small Business’ categories.
It’s a great start for the new business, launched by Nazima Pathan at the beginning of September.
Cambridge-based Nazima was an existing client of Callia Web and looking to start a new community venture selling locally sourced artisan food produce all under one website.
We designed a website for her that would allow different local producers to both register and upload products, as well as a scalable e-commerce solution that fitted her delivery process.
Customers fill their online basket with their favourite products from the collective of local producers. The items are then picked, packed and delivered to the hub and then the customer chooses to either collect their order themselves or have it delivered to their home.
“We had lots of positive feedback from the press and from our customers about how nice the site was to browse and how easy it was to get information and select products to buy,” says Nazima.
We are delighted that this has been recognised by the Cambridgeshire digital awards!
The remaining contenders in each of the categories are now in with a chance of clinching Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes at the winners’ ceremony on November 24 at the Cambridge Belfry, in Cambourne.
The CDAs are the first and only scheme within the county to celebrate the online achievements of businesses, schools and charities.
Robin Bailey, chair of the CDA16 Judging Panel and host of the event said: “The quantity and standard of entries for CDA16 has gone through the roof and the panel has a major task ahead in deciding upon the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each category.”
The team at Callia Web wish everyone at Cambridge Food Collective all the best for the awards night!
