In 2008, we entered our first regional awards and were delighted to do really well. We had a few ups and downs in the first couple of years, but our passion, bordering on obsession to make tasty, natural products has never wavered! We are now one of the country’s most awarded pie and pasty makers.
In 2009 we hit the national stage by winning the title ‘Britain’s Best Cornish Pasty’. Our Cornish counterparts weren’t happy that this coveted title went to a Devon pasty maker!
We have since gone on to win over 100 awards across our range of both pies and pasties. Champion twice at the British Pie awards and numerous Great Taste awards, acknowledged as the bench mark for specialty food and drink.
Our Steak Pasty has won a Great Taste Award for 8 consecutive years – we don’t think any other product has achieved this!
The Chunk Pie Factory is in Ottery St Mary where our team, or hunks as we call them, of 40 dedicated folk make and bake with the same passion as we have. The ingredients are sourced as locally as possible and when you’ve got fantastic natural produce why spoil their flavours with additives and other junk? So we don’t. The result? – Pies, pasties, pork pies and sausage rolls that taste absolutely awesome!
