The Business of Fashion

Our hosts for the evening; Lamberts Yard proved a perfect venue for our brands to showcase, discuss and network.
The Business of Cycling
Having focussed on a variety of topics in previous forums, most recently Leeds’ independent food and drink, we decided that this Leodis Forum would focus on the cycling industry as, in the wake of the Tour de France and anticipation of the Tour de Yorkshire, it felt like the right time to tackle this topic.
and the Yorkshire Dales Meat Company
Just over a century ago, the Knox family began farming in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire. In the early 2000s following the BSE crisis, with cattle trade unsettled and waning confidence across the market, the Knox family were frustrated with the poor prices they were receiving for their high quality beef. “We decided to take things into our own hands and started selling direct at farmers’ markets to try and get a little more for the product we were producing” says James Knox, the company’s newly appointed managing director.
and Sloemotion Gin
The newest addition to our back bars is the steeped sloe gin of Sloemotion: a family run business that have recently relocated to Barton-le-Willows. Although the business is growing and production has been greatly increased, the values and integrity that matter to Managing Director Jonathan Curtoys continue to remain a prevalent feature of this exemplary company.
