Thixendale-based Charlie and Ivy’s has secured the listings for four of the lifestyle brand’s bread dippers in all branches of the family owned supermarket, dubbed the Waitrose of the north.

The range comprises the best-selling flavours Lemon, Balsamic and Juniper Berry;

Smoked Garlic and Black Peppercorn and Great Taste award winners Garlic, Oregano and Balsamic and Chilli, Garlic and Ginger.

The firm’s business development manager Richard Sharp said: “We developed the Charlie and Ivy’s brand for informal entertaining with friends and the versatile dippers are fabulous simply with crusty bread and amazing drizzled over salads, pastas or pizza. Booths aim is to sell the best food and drink available, in attractive stores, staffed with first class assistants.

“Since 1847, they have worked closely with local suppliers from Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria and of course, Yorkshire. Naturally, we are delighted to join them and look forward to growing the Charlie and Ivy’s brand together.”

Charlie and Ivy’s sister company, Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil was established in 2008 by Adam and Jennie Palmer on their farm in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds.
