Melton Mowbray Pie Awards

The annual Pie Awards took place in Melton Mowbray on April 24th.  The entrants included a number of BAKO North Western customers and Adam Manton, our Birmingham based Sales Executive, was on hand to assist with judging.

The pie is one of the icons of British cuisine: savoury or sweet, the British eat millions of them every year and the awards are seen as a national celebration of British Pies in all their varieties.   A pie, which is deemed by the event as a filling totally encased in pastry, is of great pride to bakers and butchers alike, and BAKO North Western is proud to supply both market sectors.

Categories at the awards ranged from the hotly contested Mowbray Pork Pie and Steak & Kidney, all the way through to dessert pies.  Adam, who judged the Hot Chicken Pie category, commented, “The event is taken very seriously by all involved, as winning can be a valuable accolade to a business, with many previous winners reporting an increase in trade following their win.”

A number of our customers did well, including Stuart Smith’s Butchers, who won the savoury pie class with a Chicken and Ham Hock Pie, and Greenhalghs , who received gold in the Steak & Ale Pie category and bronze in the Steak and Kidney category.
