Proper pies share slice of success

The Oliver James Foods division of Creative Foods Europe was delighted to take a large slice of the pie at the 2018 British Pie Awards, mopping up an array of gold and silver awards for its Proper Pies range.

A national celebration of British Pies in all their varieties, the Awards celebrated their 10th anniversary this year. The Proper Pies range is currently enjoying a winning streak and at the 2018 ceremony was presented with two Gold and three Silver awards for high quality, innovative lines.

The Proper Pies Mushroom, Spinach & Truffle Oil Pie and the Steak & Stilton Fondue Pie with Beef Dripping Gravy made Gold, while the Chicken, Ham & Cheddar Pie, the Chicken, Pancetta & Chardonnay Pie and the Steak & Mushroom Duxelle Pie all won silver awards.

Proper Pies were launched in 2006 to fill a gap in the foodservice market for high quality pies. The succulent slow-cooked filling and handmade pastry make a winning combination, as demonstrated by their latest success.
