BETTYS & Taylors Group, home to some of Yorkshire’s most loved brands, said sales and profits rose last year in spite of growing competition and changing consumer habits.

The family-owned company reported a five per cent increase in turnover to £156m. Pre-tax profits rose 7.3 per cent to £10.8m in the year ending October 2014.

The group, which owns Yorkshire Tea and six Bettys tea rooms across Yorkshire, said: “We are pleased that we have been able to deliver strong results in what is an increasingly competitive market where in the last year we have seen unprecedented change in the buying habits of UK consumers.”
