Following an increase in sales for our award-winning range of delectable snacks which saw our turnover boosted by 28% for 2017, we have expanded into an adjacent unit which now gives us a total of 14,060 square feet of space for manufacturing and office space.
We have renewed our current lease on the Waleswood Industrial Estate and with the new unit alongside we now occupy four units in total at the business park, which is situated between Sheffield and Rotherham.
Founded in 2005 by farmer, Ashley Turner, we are very proud of our local heritage with Yorkshire Crisps being produced from selected potatoes which are grown on the Yorkshire Wolds and the packaging sourced from Yorkshire suppliers too. The South Yorkshire location of the business is also key, giving easy access to our suppliers and customers as well as our employees.
The expansion means that extra production shifts are now able to be put in place to cope with the growth in demand for the products, seeing our production line for Yorkshire Crisps now in operation 24 hours a day.
Yorkshire Crisps and Yorkshire Popcorn are available to purchase from our online shop as well as in many independent retailers such as farm shops, delis, coffee shops, sandwich bars, pubs, wine bars. They are also on sale in selected Yorkshire branches of Morrison’s and also John Lewis/Waitrose Food Halls.
We also supply several hamper companies with crisps and popcorn in a 50g version of our unique stay-fresh, re-sealable drum which works very well for this, having a long shelf life. Titbits Gourmet Bites - delicious, lightly- baked, bite-size biscuits made from mature cheddar cheese and finest oats are a recent addition to our range and were created specifically for the hamper market.
Our drums are also very popular with theatre groups as they provide a quieter option compared to rustling packets!
With continued growth of our export markets which already reach Europe and as far as Uruguay, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates, a taste of Yorkshire may soon be available globally – Eee bah gum!
