Web applications for Barber's Cheesemakers

Based in Somerset and founded in 1833, Barber’s is the world’s oldest cheddar cheesemaker. Their products can be found in shops and supermarkets throughout the UK and Europe.

Barber’s wanted to transform the way they communicated with their milk suppliers and commissioned us to build an online portal to ensure suppliers are kept fully up-to-date regarding contracts, background and traceability, in addition to supplying customers with accurate information on product quality assurance.

The suppliers portal launched was launched in 2018 and has been a great success. Following on from this we have also created a new application for the HR department, a comprehensive system for managing all essential HR information and communication with employees. The ‘HR Portal was launched in 2021.

The development of the Suppliers Portal has transformed the way we work with our Milk Suppliers. Key to success has been the considered planning and skilful creation of the Portal, making it simple to use, yet complex in functionality.
