We’re proud to announce that Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil have launched an initiative to connect local businesses for the benefit of their customers.

Our Marketing Manager, Jennie (pictured) approached selected Yorkshire businesses to participate in the ‘EAT Yorkshire’ promotion that will run throughout March.

“For us and many of our business friends, meeting up and selling at food fairs and farmers’ markets is a great part of the job that we have really missed this year.

“I wanted to do something to give something back our loyal customers, so I approached like minded family businesses to take part in a virtual food fair with a difference: EAT Yorkshire.

“There are 12 businesses taking part in the initiative and all will offer a discount on online orders from 1st to 31st March.”

One of the businesses that is looking forward to taking part is Staal Smokehouse from Beverley, East Yorkshire. Founder, Justin Staal said: “We first met Adam and Jennie from Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil at a farm shop tasting event in 2012 and went on to collaborate on an award winning smoked oil.

“We’ve really missed the show season, so we’re delighted to be taking part in this innovative virtual show initiative. We hope that we can create show-like engagement with our customers and fellow family business owners on social media – it will certainly be warmer doing it this way than standing on a market stall!”

The list of businesses taking part is Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil, Staal Smokehouse, Side Oven Bakery, The Chilli Jam Man, Wold Top Brewery, Sloemotion, Anna’s Happy Trotters, Raisthorpe Manor, Lottie Shaws, Yorkshire Tonics, Puckett’s Pickles and Yorkshire Wolds Apple Juice.
