Have your say

The husband and wife team behind Thixendale business, Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil is celebrating after being awarded a Commendation for a prestigious Red Ribbon Award that is exclusively for family businesses.

Hosted by Family Business Place, the Red Ribbon awards recognise the achievements of family-run companies of all sizes and across all sectors and held an awards ceremony at Goldsmith’s Hall recently.

Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil was shortlisted in the Small Business Category and was delighted to be ‘Commended for Excellence’ for their range of range of oils, dressing and mayonnaise based on their award winning rapeseed oil that is produced exclusively from home and Yorkshire Wolds grown rape and blended, bottled and labelled on the family farm.

Of the success, Adam Palmer, who started the award winning business just 5 years ago with his wife, Jennie said: “This is the first time that we have entered the Red Ribbon awards and the first time that our young business has been received a national award. Naturally, we’re very proud to have reached the final and to have put the village of Thixendale on the family business map.

Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil was established in 2008 by Adam and Jennie Palmer on their family farm in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds.

The oil is used in Michelin starred kitchens, including the Pipe and Glass at South Dalton, and all products are preservative, GM and gluten free and are suitable for vegetarians.

Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil products are also available at farmers’ markets, farm shops, delis and independent retailers throughout Yorkshire.
