outofyorkshire.co.uk has launched today. It’s an expansion of the Leeds-based coffee and smoothie chain Out of the Woods which, the owners say, will offer British folk the opportunity to discover food and drink from independent suppliers across Yorkshire.
Out of the Woods opened its first shop on Water Lane in 2006 and after four years, Jon Baldwin and co-owner Ross Halliday, were able to open a second shop in Granary Wharf in 2010, where they offer people in the city healthy alternatives in a relaxed and natural environment.
Jon said: “Our customers have told us that they love the locally sourced produce available in our cafes and so the next logical step was to take this online and share these quality ingredients and products with everyone who shares our passion for great tasting food from local suppliers.
outofyorkshire.co.uk will also provide pre-prepared hampers for people that are looking to give the perfect gift to food lovers or Yorkshire expats.”
Suppliers stocked on the site will range from well-known sweet producer Farrah’s of Harrogate, to the up and coming Harrogate Preserves and Toftly Treats.
This new venture has been brought to life with the help of employee Chris Large who has a background in e-commerce and shared enthusiasm for local produce.
outofyorkshire.co.uk will also provide corporate packages for client gifts or hotels.
Products can be delivered to your home or office, or collected from Out of the Woods’ shop in Granary Wharf, Leeds.
