About Us

We’re dedicated to making Yorkshire food and drink the first choice by respecting tradition, encouraging innovation, and celebrating great taste.

Here in Yorkshire, we don’t just like to make a fuss about our food and drink industry – we like to shout about it! It’s our mission to make Yorkshire the food and drink capital of Britain and we do this by promoting, supporting, and developing our fantastic member businesses.

Our community of members are spread across the county and come in all shapes and sizes. From talented artisan producers, farm shops and delis, cafes, coffee shops to breweries, restaurants, and hotels, all committed to using the best local produce, and producing something extra special.

Yorkshire is home to an array of iconic and world-famous brands both new and old, from small artisan producers selling throughout the region to large businesses exporting across the globe, each giving their own spin on the great Yorkshire larder.
With food and drink provenance becoming increasingly high on everyone’s agenda, consumers are ever more aware of the contents of their plates. Yorkshire’s extensive list of hospitality and retail businesses are spoilt for choice when selecting what treats to serve.

In a county of sleepy villages, vibrant market towns and spectacular cities, serving up a slice of local produce with a world famous welcome, Yorkshire really is the food capital of Britain. There really is no finer place to eat, drink and be merry!
