News: Yorkshire folk favour the local flavour


Creative Sheffield report on the recent survey conducted by Rotherham firm, Yorkshire Crisps, where researchers found that over 70% of Yorkshire folk preferred the Yorkshire Crisps’ flavours when compared with a national, well-known brand. The blind taste-test took place at Meadowhall Shopping Centre during a food focused week which saw celebrity chef James Martin cooking some adventurous dishes for shoppers. Feedback from those questioned to describe Yorkshire Crisps included: "better taste and flavour", "thicker", "crunchier", "less salty" and "how I expect a crisp to be". The Yorkshire Crisps survey results also revealed that 96% of people questioned would rather support local producers, such as the Waleswood based Yorkshire Crisps, than large corporate businesses. Tony Bishop, Managing Director of Yorkshire Crisps said: "Based on appearance, taste and aroma, I’m delighted that our convivial crisps are favoured over a national well-known crisp brand. Larger companies who are able to distribute on a larger scale often have a higher profile, however these landslide survey results demonstrate that supporting local food brands isn’t just important for the local economy, but local produce tastes better too!"
