The company grows traditional and speciality herbs alongside baby leaf salads, edible flowers and other speciality Winter products such as kale and flower sprouts on its 120-acre farm at Sandhutton, near Thirsk, supplying the wholesale, catering, food manufacturing and retail sectors. Founded by chef Alison Dodd in 1992 from her kitchen table Herbs Unlimited now employs a dedicated team of 45 people. Her son Philip is currently Operations Director and a succession plan is in place for this family owned business to continue as a leading supplier for many years to come.

Herbs Unlimited managing director Alison Dodd said: “I started the company back in 1992 because the fresh herbs I wanted for my dishes were hard to come by at that time.” A business like ours can never stand still and we’re constantly innovating and investing in both equipment and staff to maximise market opportunities. While Brexit has brought uncertainty to the market, it has also brought a renewed interest in sourcing from the UK and supporting British growing and we are well placed to make the most of that. Our customers appreciate that we are small enough to provide flexibility for them but large enough to be relied upon for year-round supply and expertise.”

Herbs Unlimited pick and pack freshly cut herbs for the whole of the UK, with their own temperature controlled fleet and overnight deliveries going out 6 nights a week. BRC certified washing, slicing, and bowl chopping are available for all products in their high care processing plant, and through product trials and sampling for NPD they are valued by their customers as an essential partner for developing new products using freshly cut herbs and salads as well as their core business of supplying packed herbs, baby leaf salad and edible flowers to the wholesale trade.
