Malton’s Talbot Yard will hold its exciting Launch Event on Thursday 9th October, 6pm to 7.30pm.
Special guest Belinda Williams, co-founder of Yorkshire Provender, will attend the event. Yorkshire Provender is a North Yorkshire success-story retailing its range of hand-prepared soups through Waitrose and Booths.
The collection of six food production units at Talbot Yard, refurbished by the Fitzwilliam Malton Estate and situated opposite the Talbot Hotel and the James Martin Restaurant, is on track to welcome its first tenant in October.
Drinks and Made in Malton canapés will welcome guests at the Launch Event.
Tobias Burckhardt, the Estate’s Surveyor, said: “Talbot Yard is part of Malton’s ‘Food Capital’ agenda. We want to capture Malton’s growing reputation as a food town and to do that we set ourselves the target of turning Talbot Yard into a hub for food and drink producers. A place where the best food and drink can be created.”
Talbot Yard is aimed at start-up food companies, or kitchen-table concerns looking to take their business to the next level.
Belinda, who co-founded Yorkshire Provender soups with her husband Terry in 2004, said: “I am delighted to be attending this launch night in Malton.
“The food agenda for Malton is in line with our own, which includes taking the freshest seasonal ingredients, marrying them together in an imaginative way to produce a consistently superior product.
“All our soups are made in our North Yorkshire kitchen sourcing vegetables from local and British farms where we can.”
Mr Burckhardt added: “The Launch Event will be a chance for guests to view Talbot Yard in a relaxed, formal way and envisage their own business being in Malton.
The units measure from 43 sqm to 176 sqm and set in a Grade 2 listed coach yard.
