A website with wings, powered by Hyvä and Aware Digital
A 330% page speed increase, sub 1.5 second load times, and a 68.12% boost in revenue.
Based on a thriving family farm in beautiful Bedfordshire, Ivel Valley lovingly supplies an ever-growing range of homemade suet treats and carefully formulated bird seed mixes to customers across the UK. Having teamed up with an expert ornithologist, Ivel Valley offers a complete solution for attracting birds into your garden and feeding hungry beaks with nutritious and delicious foods, with a focus on sustainability and minimising waste.
A true leader in the industry, Ivel Valley had an outdated website running on a basic theme that provided a poor user experience. Their goal was to overhaul their online presence, upgrading them to a fresh store built on Hyvä Themes for a completely transformed user experience, better conversions and simpler store management.
Planting the seeds of a great online store
We at Hyvä are proud that Ivel Valley’s new online store is powered by us, the leading frontend for Magento delivering unrivalled mobile-first page speeds, superior development times, and incredible flexibility.
Ivel Valley’s goal with this project was to firmly position themselves as first in the pecking order - and when you use the right platform (Hyvä on Magento), anything is possible. Ivel Valley’s new store passes Core Web Vitals, delivering page loading times of sub 1.5 seconds, a 330% speed increase on the old site. Arguably the most impressive number of all? A 68.12% boost in revenue since the new store went live.

Since many products in the range come in a huge variety of pack sizes and weights, one particular feature of the new site is the move from bundled items to configurable products - all done dynamically.
