Yorkshire is a remarkable county, from the delis of the Dales, the city craft beer shops and street-food festivals to the Great Yorkshire Show – one fantastic family of food and drink.
Now this family of proud producers and retailers has a fully trademarked brand all of their own; The Yorkshire Mark. Using the Yorkshire Mark on your products communicates and celebrates their provenance using a recognisable, premium and desirable brand.
Already adopted by some leading Yorkshire food and drink brands, you can now join the growing Made in Yorkshire family yourself; like-minded, high quality independent producers and retailers who know what it takes to stand out in a competitive market.
We’ve kept it simple. For one annual low cost price, you will get access to the Made in Yorkshire brand to use across all of your product packaging, social media marketing, point of sale and merchandise.
As consumers have become more aware of locally sourced produce and independent producers, provenance is a key factor in a one off sale as well as developing customer loyalty. Show your customers that you are proud to be ‘Made in Yorkshire’ and celebrate this with the distinctive Yorkshire Mark.
Become a member today and gain full use of the Made in Yorkshire brand. We will provide you with brand guidelines to help you get the most out of the Yorkshire Mark and you will be able to purchase additional items to help you shout even louder about your Yorkshire provenance. Once signed up you will be issued with a full suite of digital logos in all the useful formats. You're in control of how and where you apply the Yorkshire Mark on your packaging and labels, social media profile and event materials.
There are 2 simple packages. We have kept the price point low by cutting down the unwanted extras and because we want the Yorkshire Mark to be accessible to as many independent Yorkshire producers and retailers as possible.
If you’re a shop or deli that stocks Yorkshire products you can also use the recognisable and engaging Made in Yorkshire brand to draw attention to your fine Yorkshire produce. Use the brand on your existing point of sale and promotional material or add items such as the Made in Yorkshire bunting to create eye-catching displays to drive sales from local residents and visitors alike.
