Savouring success for North Yorkshire food and drink industry...

10th February, 2024.

A plethora of homemade baked goods, craft beer and other artisan food and drink descended on Parliament this week, after I was proud to host a North Yorkshire Food Day to showcase the regions unbeatable small business producers.

At the packed event, we were delighted to have the Prime Minister and of course, MP for Richmond (Yorks) in attendance, chatting to the exhibitors about how and why they decided to set up their business.

He reaffirmed his support for small businesses in his home region of North Yorkshire.
