About Us

Making Yorkshire food and drink the consumers first choice by respecting tradition, encouraging innovation and celebrating great taste.

Here in Yorkshire we don’t 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 members are spread across the county and come in all shapes and sizes including talented artisan producers, farm shops and delis, cafes, coffee shops, breweries, restaurants and hotels, all committed to using the best local produce, and producing something extra special. This region is home to an array of iconic and world famous brands both new and old, from large businesses exporting across the globe to small artisan producers selling throughout the region, each giving their own spin on the great Yorkshire larder.

With food and drink provenance enjoying something of a renaissance and consumers more aware of the contents of their plates, Yorkshire’s extensive list of quality hotels, restaurants, cafés, bars, farm shops and B&Bs are spoilt for choice when selecting what treats to serve. So 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 the Great Britain and there really is no finer place to eat, drink and be merry!
