International Track 200

Harder Bros has benefited from the rising price of sausage casings as fewer of the lambs that provide the raw material are reared worldwide. The casings are processed in Leeds and Middlesbrough and exported to Germany, France, Holland and Spain. Overseas sales reached £20.5m in 2013 under managing director James Harder, 49, the third generation of the Harder family to run the company.
