James Hall & Co. Ltd adds flavour to SPAR fresh range with Yorkshire herbs

Herbs Unlimited to supply SPAR stores

James Hall & Co. Ltd has added flavour to SPAR North of England’s fresh range with the addition of tasty new herbs grown by North Yorkshire business Herbs Unlimited.

Available in large 50g bags, the family run company will supply basil, chives, coriander, curly parsley, mint, and rosemary.

Formed in 1993, Herbs Unlimited was created by Alison Dodd, mother of current Managing Director Philip Dodd, after spotting a gap in the market, and began growing herbs to sell directly to the hospitality sector when she found a lack of consistency to the restaurant where she was head chef.

From its base at Sandhutton near Thirsk, Herbs Unlimited grows a core range of 17 herbs, 28 speciality herbs, 16 varieties of edible flowers, and a range of salad and leaf vegetables including chard, kale, and spinach, and is now the go-to supplier for some of the country’s top chefs and high-end restaurants.

Philip Dodd said: “We are very excited to launch our herbs into SPAR North of England stores. We felt the time was right for the business to move in the direction of retail supply for the first time and we are confident we have the right partner in James Hall & Co. Ltd.

“For SPAR customers, this a unique opportunity to purchase the same fresh herbs in their local stores that end up on the plates of Michelin star restaurants. Our products deliver exceptional value and are packaged in vibrant branding that stands out in-store.”
