Oliver is a long-standing supporter of Small Business Saturday and this year visited Royston Food Centre, 7-9 High Street Royston, where he met the owner Mr Zulifikar Akyal.
The business is new to the High Street and is becoming popular with residents for its range of interesting foods from all parts of Europe and all the staples like bread, milk and cheeses and fresh vegetables and salads. The shop also sells the famous baklava dessert.
Commenting Oliver said:
"Small Business Saturday highlights and encourages small businesses, which are so important to High Streets and jobs. Since the shop opened, I have often popped in and it is obviously becoming popular, particularly for residents who live nearer the north end of the High Street. I congratulate Mr Akyal and all small business and wish them the best for the Christmas period and the coming year."
