Making our Yorkshire Mark!
We are thrilled to announce we have taken over responsibility for The Yorkshire Mark, a provenance mark for independent food and drink producers in Yorkshire.
Established in 2017 by Debi and Mat Lazenby, The Yorkshire Mark was created to provide food and drink producers across Yorkshire with a single, unifying mark that celebrates their provenance. With consumers becoming increasingly aware, and supportive, of locally sourced produce, members can use the ‘Made in Yorkshire’ brand across all of their product packaging, social media marketing, point of sale and merchandise to show they are proud to be ‘Made in Yorkshire’.
Managed by Debi Lazenby, it has quickly grown to become a community of more than 70 like-minded, high quality independent producers and retailers including York Cocoa House, Colemans Cider Co, Ainsty Ales, Town End Farm Shop & York Gin.
We are looking forward to building upon Mat and Debi’s great work and plan to support and expand the ‘YorkshireFam’ with member networking, events and workshops. We also hope to work with other networks and organisations across the region to collectively champion the food and drink industry.
“My roots are in the agricultural and food industries and we are very excited to be getting involved to support Yorkshire food and drink producers. There couldn’t be a better time to be shouting about the world class produce which is being grown and made here in Yorkshire.”
Alex, who will be managing the day to day running of the Yorkshire Mark said:
“As a Yorkshire farmer’s daughter, Yorkshire food and drink is something I am really passionate about. I’m really looking forward to meeting the members and helping them to spread the ‘Made in Yorkshire’ message far and wide.”
