We are celebrating success at three prestigious UK food awards, scooping seven awards across the board last month!
The most recent, was a GOLD award at the 10th FreeFrom Food Awards hosted by Celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson. Our ever popular Gluten and Dairy Free Traditional 'Everybody' Pasty was awarded first prize in the 'Food to Go' category beating off competition from dozens of top household names including Tesco and Good4U.
Judges comments included “Amazing to be free of so many allergens but still be a really good pasty! Nice pastry, good and meaty – and available at train stations!”
The judges included professional foodies (manufacturers, chefs and cookery writers), medics (dieticians and nutritionists) coeliacs and allergy sufferers and parents of children with allergies, free-from bloggers and a good sprinkling of 'outsiders' to benchmark the products against 'normal' and non-free-from equivalents.
The World Pasty Champs & The British Pie Awards 2017
Earlier in March we celebrated a global triumph at The World Pasty Championships. Amongst the three wins, one in particular was a special nod for us. Coming third in “Company Open Savoury” category was our bestselling 'Vegan Thai Green Vegetable Curry Pasty', beating off competition from traditional meat based pasties which we see as a huge achievement!
The British Pie Awards also presented us with a hat-trick of gongs. We entered three pasties and received an award for each entry!
GREAT NEWS! Following on from its double win, the award winning ‘Vegan Green Thai Vegetable Pasty’ which was originally introduced as a limited edition ‘Guest Pasty’ will now be introduced back in stores as part of our daily pasty menu and will sit alongside the plaudit collecting 'Vegetable Wheatmeal Pasty' which is also Vegan friendly.
