From traditional to technological - find out where to shop and what to buy with our i-phone app and website
Made in Cumbria supports the traditional but realises the importance of the technological side of business. The organisation has invested heavily in web technology to help support and market our members and deliver sustainable economic growth for the region.
The website is state-of-the-art: it's fully optimised for search engines, has an e-commerce system and is linked to Google maps so retail outlets and members are easy to locate. The members' directory is a unique shopping experience with businesses spanning the length and breadth of Cumbria all shown on your screen and a click away. Each member has a short description with contact details and a link going through to their site.
Alternatively, you can browse by type: pies and puddings, bespoke furniture or a farmers' market – we've got all options covered.
The i-phone and, soon to follow, Android Apps provide you with information on the best places to shop while you're on the move. If you're in Carlisle then the Apps will show you where our members are situated in and around the city. Should you wish to travel around the Lakes then the Apps will indicate a possible route taking in a selection of our members along the way.
We're really excited to be working with artisans, makers and producers, and giving them the website and apps as modern tools will help their business develop, as well as promoting all that is good about Cumbrian food and craft. And there is so much to promote!
