Table of contents

Make sure you have tables of contents that are easy to read so the customers can easily see what the products contain. Label the products that are lactose-free, gluten-free and vegetarian, for example.

Recipes

It’s a good idea to have a category page consisting of recipes on your e-commerce store. Recommend recipes that are suitable for the season and link directly to the ingredients needed to complete the recipe.

Newsletter subscription

Give your customers the opportunity to subscribe to your weekly newsletter. Let the emails contain discounts, recipes and other information.

Specialised assortment

Ensure you have the optimal assortment for your store and offer products that are not available everywhere. By offering a specialised assortment, you get customers to stay with you and then also increase sales on other products.
