TheYorkshire Mark joins forces with Uniquely Local to champion local food and drink producers

Two organisations specialising in supporting and promoting Yorkshire food and drink producers have announced a joint collaboration to encourage consumers to #shopYorkshire in the run up to Christmas 2022.

During November and December, The Yorkshire Mark and Uniquely Local will be working together on a social media campaign to promote the range of amazing, high-quality produce available within the region.

The Yorkshire Mark comprises a community of more than 60 food and drink producers, retailers, restaurants and other businesses who are licensed to use the fully trademarked ‘Made in Yorkshire’ stamp to showcase their Yorkshire provenance on their products.

Uniquely Local, which also has more than 20 food and drink producers within its network, is a ‘one stop shop’ for specialist, unique gift experiences across Yorkshire.

From vineyard tours, whisky tasting experiences, guided food tours around York, Leeds, Otley and Harrogate, plus a pork pie and piccalilli making workshop, cocktail masterclasses and online cheese tasting events, Uniquely Local offers an easy-to-use website where vouchers for each activity can be purchased online in a matter of minutes.

Georgie Harmer, brand manager of Yorkshire Mark said: “With consumers being more conscious than ever of finding great value, high quality food and drink, whether for themselves or as gifts for family and friends, the variety of locally produced options we have across the Yorkshire Mark and Uniquely Local networks is fantastic.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be collaborating with Uniquely Local to help spread the word about the rich source of wonderful food and drink businesses we have on our doorstep, all of whom take immense pride in being from Yorkshire. You really don’t have to go far to enjoy the best tastes at great prices.”

Rachel Marshall, owner of Uniquely Local said: “We have developed close friendships with all our experience providers over the years and more than ever want to encourage our customers to support these local artists, producers and manufacturers so we don’t lose them in what is set to be a challenging time ahead.

“Food and Drink is our most popular gifting category and we are delighted to be collaborating with The Yorkshire Mark to help discover and champion the next generation of food and drink entrepreneurs.”

If you are looking for inspiration and want to support local Yorkshire businesses this Christmas, you can follow the campaign on The Yorkshire Mark and Uniquely Local social media channels using the hashtag #shopYorkshire.
