We see that the ambitions, values and people who work in Culina coincide well with Epinova and our core values, says Ida Barvik, Business Advisor and Sales Manager at Epinova. "Most of Epinova's customers have been our customers for a number of years, so when we take on a new customer project, we always think long-term. In collaboration with Culina, we will work for them to achieve their business goals and achieve their visions in the years to come.  

Our sister company and skilled design partner Northern Beat is involved to ensure the good user experience and that the expression and left impression correspond to the ambitions and goals Culina has set for itself. This work consists of two main parts: A part where, through adjustment of identity and visual means, we position the Culina brand where it should be. In the second, the focus is on creating the good user experiences in the e-commerce solution. Customers and advisors should be able to collaborate on concepts and procurement in a seamless way.
