East Yorkshire Local Food Network

East Yorkshire Local Food Network

For generations the wonderful and varied landscape of the East Riding of Yorkshire and the surrounding area has produced some of the finest foods in England. This is still true today and is a reflection of the passion and skill of local people and businesses that produce it. 

Our members are small businesses driven by a passion to create superb food and drink to be enjoyed by others. 

The East Yorkshire Local Food Network provides a free opportunity for local food businesses to share ideas and resources and work together to bring to market a wide range of delicious local food and drink. 

Joining up to the Network allows your visitors to discover the very best quality products, direct from the farm, farm shops, independent retailers, cafes, restaurants, pubs and hotels.
