When purchasing from Proper Cornish you are doing so in the knowledge that you are buying from an award winning company, with award winning products.
We have recently been crowned Manufacturer of the Year at the Baking Industry Awards 2020 (the equivalent of the Oscars in the baking industry), and we were also crowned County champion in the National Bakery Awards 2020. Our hero product, our steak pasty, was awarded Gold at the 2020 Pie Awards. Fantastic accolades indeed and testament to the quality of our products and service we provide.
It all started in 1988 when three Cornishmen, Phil Ugalde and brothers Dave and Chris Pauling, became disillusioned with so-called ‘Cornish’ pasties.
They decided to take a stand for Cornish heritage and quality so, taking the Pauling family recipe and working with local farmers, they started hand-crafting exceptional quality traditional Cornish pasties.
Today, Phil, Chris, and the team are still at the heart of Cornwall in a state of the art bakery and using the same traditional principles.

The key to the exceptional quality and taste of “Proper Cornish” pasties is the ultra-freshness of ingredients, prepared in-house, just in time and sourced from Cornwall wherever possible. Supplier relationships are personal to us. Vegetables are delivered daily from chosen Cornish farms; Chris Dustow at Par (8 miles) grows our potatoes and Hay Farm at Torpoint (30 miles) grows our swede and onions.
We buy as much meat as we can from Cornwall, but the special cut of steak used in our PGI pasty is simply not available in sufficient quantity from Cornwall, so we have selected 5 trusted UK and Irish suppliers who provide exceptional quality UK & Irish meat day in day out.
The method we use is a closely guarded secret and elevates our products from good to exceptional. This captures the hearts of consumers everywhere and keeps them coming back again and again for a Proper Cornish pasty.
