Introducing our new Yorkshire Mark Ambassador – Ben Thorpe
We’re excited to announce that acclaimed blogger and food critic, Ben Thorpe, owner of York on a Fork, is joining our growing family as a Yorkshire Mark Ambassador.
After working in financial services for several years, Ben made the decision to turn his passion for the York restaurant scene into a blog, ‘York on a Fork’ focusing on the thriving food and drink outlets in York and the surrounding area, and it is now one of York’s most trusted sources of information for high quality food and drink content. As a renowned critic, Ben has been invited to experience hundreds of restaurant and dining experiences across Yorkshire, promoting and championing the best of the best. Working with a strong network of food industry contacts, Ben also offers consultancy to local businesses, helping them understand what it means to open and sustain a successful food business and how to find their voice and stand out in a crowded sector.
Ben is a regular on the food award and festival circuit, working with the Guild of Fine Food, Azets, the official York Tourist Guide and York Food & Drink Festival, helping the broad range of food & drink businesses in the region.
Ben will be helping us to champion the Yorkshire Mark brand and all our brilliant members across Yorkshire. We’re absolutely delighted to welcome him to our community. Here’s what Ben had to say:
“I’m delighted to be joining the Yorkshire Mark community and support an enterprise that clearly shares my values around supporting businesses in the region. I’m looking forward to being mutually supportive and championing the best the region has, together.”
