Future looks bright for Fodder

Posted on June 1, 2010

A FLAGSHIP food shop and café championed by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society is celebrating its first year of trading, having injected more than £1.9m into the region’s economy.

Harrogate-based Fodder has become the shop window for Yorkshire’s farmers and producers, giving a crucial local market for their produce.

The shop is Britain’s first charitable food hall with all profits re-invested to benefit the rural community.

Local producer Lottie Shaw baked a Yorkshire Parkin birthday cake to mark the occasion.
