Liquidators appointed at The Yorkshire Meatball Company

James Sleight and John Twizell from PKF Geoffrey Martin & Co were appointed Joint Liquidators of The Yorkshire Meatball Company on 19 October 2017.

Founded in 2014 by father-and-son team David and Gareth Atkinson, The Yorkshire Meatball Company sold its products through supermarkets and operated a restaurant in Harrogate until late last year.

James said: “The company’s financial difficulties arose from a culmination of the historic losses from its restaurant operations and insufficient working capital to promote its products to a wider audience. Whilst repeat demand for its products was strong and the company had been able to build up a loyal consumer following, it was sadly not sufficient for the supermarkets and all products were withdrawn at the end of September.

“Despite repeated attempts by management to source further investment for the business to build on its initial success, the company ran out of funds and ceased to trade.

“No employees other than management were affected as the company outsourced the majority of its operations.

“We are now concentrating on trying to find a buyer for the company’s brand and business in the hope that this multi award-winning concept can be revived and offered to customers again.”
