We Care

We’re an independent family business and we’ve always challenged ourselves to do things in as sustainable a way as possible. We care about our impact on the environment around us, and we know you do too.  

Free Range & British

Free Range & British

Since we started we’ve carefully considered the sustainability of our ingredients. Where possible, we source from as close to our Bristol kitchens as we can and from British farmers and producers who share our high welfare and ethical standards.

The number of meat-free and plant-based products that we make grows exponentially.

And for our meat patties and pies, we continue to always use free range British chicken and pork, wild British venison and farm-assured, mostly grass-fed, British beef.

Plastic Free Pieminister

Plastic Free Pieminister

In 2019 we reworked our packaging to make it plastic free.

The window on our pie boxes and wrap for our patties is made from a transparent wood pulp substrate. All the rest of the packaging is made from fully recyclable, FSC Approved card, printed using vegetable-based inks.

Sustainable Palm Oil

Sustainable Palm Oil

In line with leading environmentalists including Greenpeace and WWF, we remain convinced that when sourced responsibly from a deforestation free source, palm is the most ethical and sustainable oil available.

We currently use 100% fully segregated and fully sustainable RSPO-certified palm oil in our pastry. And from early 2020, all of our palm oil will be identity preserved, from a single source recognised as the most transparent palm oil producer in the world by the Zoological Society of London’s SPOTT programme.
