The Story So far...

Shepcote was started in 1969 by Michael Shepherdson in Driffield and continues to successfully trade from their East Yorkshire base. The Company moved to a purpose built factory, warehouse and office in June 2007. In 1994, Richard Shepherdson, the company’s Managing Director, took over the day-to-day management tasks from his father; he continues to apply and build upon the successful principles set by his father that have made Shepcote an industry leader.

Shepcote prides itself on its wide delivery service, covering areas from Northumberland to South Lincolnshire including Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Teesside and Tyneside. Independent carriers supply goods to customers anywhere outside of those areas and bulk sugar is delivered directly by the refiners.
