The Co-operative Group has teamed up with local producers in Yorkshire to bring together products from the county in a branded range.

Made In Yorkshire, available in 38 The Co-operative stores in Yorkshire, includes products such as beer, ice cream and biscuits. The Co-op Group has sold products made in Yorkshire for more than 100 years but this was the first time the products had been grouped together as part of the range, said a spokesman.

Yorkshire Crisps, a company set up three years ago by Sheffield businessmen Ashley Turner and Tony Bishop, has secured its first major listing as part of the range, with four flavours.

“As we only sell to organisations that actively support locally produced foods, we have turned down several opportunities to work with some of the UK’s leading retailers in the past,” said Tony Bishop, managing director of Yorkshire Crisps.
