An ambitious entrepreneur from Barmby Moor is enjoying the sweet taste of success after winning a £1.8m contract with a supermarket chain in the Middle East to export a new range of luxury nibbles.

Craig Benton, 26, recently struck a deal to sell preserves, biscuits, crisps and confectionary to supermarkets in the Middle East under his London Deli Company brand.

The ingredients are sourced from across Yorkshire and are manufactured at four sites in the region, with 15 staff employed to make the products across the sites.
