"We're proud of our roots in rural East Yorkshire and the contribution we make to the local economy, charities and community groups. We highlight our Yorkshire Wolds provenance in everything we do, from packaging to vans, so it's rewarding to have our efforts commended in this prestigious competition," said Ben Lee, MD.
