The Essential Oils Producers Association of Australia was inaugurated in 1994. Its main objective is to promote and facilitate the production of essential oils and allied products in Australia by bringing together all parties working in this field, e.g. growers of essential oil bearing crops, producers of essential oils, firms trading in essential oils, researchers engaged in the study of the agronomic aspects of the commercial growing of essential oil bearing plants and the chemistry of essential oils, the pharmacology of essential oils as well as persons or companies intending to enter this industry.
Their original site was proving difficult to manage – it had been left to languish, with responsibility for updates not owned by a specific person or group . Despite the best intentions, it had become unwieldy so the decision was made to upgrade the site completely, initially regaining control of the domain name itself, then recreating the site with new versions of WP etc. It was important to retain a similar look to the site but integrate new features including online member signup and renewals. A classified ads section, and possibly a blog (rather than PDF newsletter) is likely to be added, and it’s expected that the site will evolve based on member feedback.
WordPress, customised Divi template, WP eMember, WooCommerce, MailPoet, and the usual security and SEO suite of tools.
