Moving category header to the left to parse data

I have a price list in Excel and need to move the categories in a column of their own. Right now each Category starts with a line then the products are under it (see image). They all start with the word "Category" so I'm thinking it may be possible to copy that first cell in the line and copy it in a column to the left of the products below until the next Category, then repeat through a loop.

I haven't done VB for quite some time so any help would be welcome.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can alternatively use this formula..

=LOOKUP(2/1,SEARCH("Category",B$2:B3,1),B$2:B3)
