Jon Thorner’s is celebrating further award success with a Champion win at the National British Pie Awards!
Our Steak & Kidney Pie was awarded the highest accolade in its category and named the Class Champion – beating hundreds of other contenders.
The awards are a national celebration of British pies and hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association. Pie-makers from across the country entered their tastiest pies in a bid to wow the judges; a team of culinary professionals and industry experts were looking for fantastic flavours and perfect pastry.
As well as the Class Champion for our Steak & Kidney pie, we also received a further 11 British Pie Award commendations for flavours such as Brisket & Horseradish, Steak & Stilton, Creamy Chicken, Smoked Bacon & Leek and Sweet Potato & Goat’s Cheese Pie. For the full list of awards click here.
Founder and managing director Jon Thorner attended the lunch ceremony and was presented with the award by category sponsor Melton Mowbray BID. He was overwhelmed by the accolade and said, “I just can’t believe what a great year it has been already – I feel our pies have really made a place for themselves in the food sector, we’ve seen phenomenal growth in sales. We are really proud of what we have achieved.”
