Agropur Dairy Cooperative Drupal 8 and Acquia Cloud Development Solution

Agropur Cooperative is a North American dairy industry leader headquartered in Saint-Hubert, Québec, Canada.

In the 1930s, hundreds of dairy cooperatives were founded in Quebec, a move largely predicated on the prevailing economic crisis of that time. Though many of the members are no longer in existence as companies, Agropur is one of the few that has not only survived, but continues to thrive, having celebrated 75 years of achievements in 2013.Today, Agropur Cooperative is a renowned leader in the Canadian dairy industry, with annual sales of over $6 billion, processing around 5.9 billion litres of milk each year. 

When Agropur decided to build their new site, they selected Appnovation. With a background in the successful delivery of Drupal 8 websites, plus in-depth digital solution providing with platforms such as Acquia cloud, this project was in safe hands.

Appnovation were tasked with delivering a digital platform designed to serve as a central data repository and toolkit for all other Agropur digital properties (including cheesebar.ca). Having undertaken a thorough discovery, Appnovation chose to table Acquia Cloud and Acquia Content Hub. Additionally, the site would integrate Acquia Lift and the project would include a complete rebuild of agropur.com and cheesebar.ca, both done using Drupal 8.
