AN award-winning ice cream maker has added five new clients in the run-up to Christmas.
The new customers for Denby Dale-based Yummy Yorkshire include a bistro supporting a chef’s academy and a social enterprise farm shop and café.
The newcomers include Forster’s Bistro and Deli, which forms part of Forsters Community College in Bradford. The 100-seater restaurant opened at the beginning of December to help generate revenue for the college and offer real work placements to students.
The Granary Café and Farm Shop in North Leeds has also joined Yummy Yorkshire’s client list. Profits from the venue support Caring For Life, a charity helping disadvantaged people who have been “missed” by other support networks.
Further new accounts for Yummy Yorkshire include the Timothy Taylor-owned Grouse Inn, near Keighley, Sugar Mouse, a traditional sweet shop, milk bar and ice cream parlour in Easingwold, and Muse, a new gastro pub in Yarm, opened by Marcus Bennett, Michelin chef and owner of the award-winning Bay Horse at Hurworth.
Jeremy Holmes, co-founder of Yummy Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to supply our ice cream to these outlets across the county.
“It is fantastic to see the demand from local customers for Yorkshire-made products and for the passion and support of new businesses like Forster’s Bistro and Deli, which actively source and promote regional artisan food and drink.”
