Yorkshire Provender

As our name suggests, our wonderful colleagues at Yorkshire Provender are based in Yorkshire (North Yorkshire, that is).
Although a relatively small team, we are hugely passionate about making the most delicious soup and porridge. We believe that a tasty, nourishing meal shouldn't be exclusive to those who have hours to spend in the kitchen - so we do that bit for you, and you can enjoy it in your own time.
We love real food. We take great care in developing deliciously honest, family inspired recipes that focus on fresh, local ingredients and traditional cooking methods, for that comforting taste of home-made.
Founded in 2007, our brand has gone from strength to strength - our products are now listed in most of the major retailers, as well as on-the-go food outlets, and foodservice providers in the UK.
Across all of our fabulous soups, we cater for a wide range of tastes and dietary requirements - a number of our soups are suitable for vegetarians, some are dairy free, others are gluten free and all of them provide at least 1 of your five a day.
And we don't just make soup - we also make delicious fresh porridge using jumbo oats, in a variety of flavours. All low fat, and gluten free. That's your breakfast and lunch sorted!

Why join us?

At Hain Daniels we've developed a real recipe for success: we create tasty food and drinks with goodness at their core, and work with some incredible brands whose ethos is the same as ours. At the core of everything we do are our people: without them, we simply wouldn't be a market-leading food and drink specialist.

The typical Hain Daniels employee is friendly, hard-working and passionate about what they do. And by showing such commitment to us, we reward our team members with a lovely place to work and the chance to achieve their potential; with plenty of opportunities for personal development. We offer generous pay and a genuine opportunity to help the business grow.
