Fine food retailer Lewis & Cooper's move into wholesale looks to be paying off after its fruit cakes and biscuits were listed at 11 National Trust shops and retailer Lakeland ordered 11,000 of its plum puddings.

The Northallerton-based shop, famous for its plum puddings and fruit cakes, launched its wholesale business in October, targeting delis, farm shops, restaurants and cafés. The firm has now gained a listing for its fruit cakes, along with its biscuits made by a baker in South Yorkshire, in 11 National Trust shops, including high street stores in York and Skipton.

It will supply Lakeland, which has 41 stores across the country and a large online business, with 6,000 of its 450g vegetarian plum puddings and 5,000 of the 220g gluten-free varieties.
