A Norfolk based yoghurt business has secured a £100,000 deal to supply its products to 54 Tesco stores across the region.

Little Melton Gourmet Yogurt, based at the Little Melton Food Park, has seen a steady growth in its business since it was founded by Mark Collins and Cara Cunningham in 2010.

The couple relocated to the UK from New Zealand to set up the business, which employs eight staff.

And in addition to the Tesco deal it is also looking to supply yoghurts to British Airways.

Mr Collins, said the goal for the business was to get the yoghurts on the shelves of more supermarkets which will help step up production at the factory to closer to its 50 tonnes-a-week capacity.

“It hasn’t even been in the market for 12 months, but all the feedback has been really positive and it’s going in right direction,” he said.
