A Yorkshire cheese maker has benefited from Morrisons’ takeover of Safeway.

Shepherds Purse is now supplying two of its award winning cheeses to Morrisons and Safeway stores across Yorkshire and the north east.

The retailer will be selling Yorkshire Blue and Yorkshire feta on the Cheese Express counters in Morrisons stores.

John Kerwin, associate director of Shepherds Purse, said: “As a local manufacturer we are pleased to be trading with Morrisons. We are delighted to extend the availability of our excellent, locally produced, premium quality cheeses.”
