Class One started life as a market stall on Skipton High Street in 1990. Run by Diane, her ethos then was quality at the right price, values which are still at the heart of Class One today. The reputation started to grow and local chefs asked for direct delivery. Diane ran the stall and Class One simultaneously for 4 years before deciding wholesale rather than retail was the way forward.
Diane’s husband Chris was a wholesaler in Bradford Market and had been for over 20 years. As Class One took off the decision was made for Chris to bring his knowledge and experience to the business.
Chris’s son Ben joined the company in 2001.
