We’re a Yorkshire family business with a passion for making life’s everyday treats even better. We’re the company behind Yorkshire Tea, Taylors of Harrogate tea, coffee and infusions, and the famous Bettys Café Tea Rooms.
We’re a family business with strong values – the Six Ps – which underpin the decisions we make and how we operate day-in, day-out: Passion, Prosperity, People, Product, Process and Planet.
Bettys & Taylors is a fourth-generation family business. Our Collaborative CEO is responsible for organisational strategy and development, and the operations of the Bettys and Taylors businesses. Our Group Board includes the Chair of the Board, the Chair of the Collaborative CEO, the Group Finance & Resources Director and four Non-Executive Directors.
It’s just over 100 years since Bettys first opened its doors and we’re still a family business, proud of our Yorkshire and Swiss roots, and still committed to quality, service and doing things properly. Our timeline shares some of the key moments and milestones from our 100-year history.
