Jon Thorner’s found themselves in esteemed company at the recent Meat Management Awards.
Somerset butcher Jon Thorner’s was nominated a finalist in the Britain’s Best Meat Pie category. Their new flavour Pulled Brisket & Horseradish wowed the tasting panel, amongst an outstanding number of entries from pie producers across the country.
The Meat Management Awards is a national industry event to reward the best of the best in the UK meat sector. The event culminated in a black tie ceremony in Birmingham, at the Hilton Metropole, in June.
Jon Thorner’s was also given a High Commendation for their Spicy Cumberland Sausage & Red Onion Pie, but just pipped to the top spot for the Brisket & Horseradish Pie by Marks & Spencer. But being nominated a finalist amongst established national producers was a win in itself.
For a business with humble beginnings in 1979, to now being a major player in the local food sector, it is exciting for the products we produce to be recognised amongst the large multiples. Jon Thorner’s supply hundreds of independent retailers across the south west of England, and more recently nationally via Ocado – but each one of our pies is still individually filled and hand-crimped.
