Corned Beef Pasty Campaign Rolls On to Welsh Assembly

Corned Beef Pasty Campaign Rolls On to Welsh Assembly

Pasty baker Peter’s is continuing with its campaign to have the corned beef pasty recognised as a Welsh national dish, and will be heading to the Welsh Assembly on Thursday 25th August to present a petition to gain support for the appeal.

 

Since the campaign began at Caerphilly Castle in April, Peter’s has been petitioning for support with a campaign that has included nationwide sampling in Tesco and Asda stores. In excess of 2,000 people across Wales have backed the campaign, signing petitions, participating in taste tests and getting involved with a recently-launched social media campaign.

 

Clare Morgan, marketing controller for Peter’s, says: “It was always our intention that with enough support from the public, we would try to win backing for the campaign at the highest level. Being able to present the petition to the Welsh Assembly is a fantastic opportunity to add a major boost to the campaign.”

 

She continues: “After presenting our petition to the Welsh Assembly, we really hope to see even more pasty fans signing up, helping us to secure the corned beef pasty’s new status and celebrating this important part of our national heritage.”

 

Peter’s began life as a small pie manufacturer in South Wales. Today it is one of Britain’s best-loved brands of pies, pasties and sausage rolls. The business, which is based in Bedwas,South Wales, produces over 3 million pastries every week and employs 700 people with an annual turnover of £65 million.
