Ginsters has come a long way since 1969 when Geoffrey Ginster began producing pasties from an old egg-packing barn in Callington, Cornwall.
Today we stay true to our Cornish heritage with our history and bakery in operation still in Callington.
We are proud of our heritage and commitment to Cornwall. We buy local ingredients where is it possible and practical. Our potatoes, swedes and onions come from Jeremy at Hay Farm on the Rame Head peninsular, only 15 miles from our bakery. Its micro climate makes this the perfect Cornish spot for growing veg.
We only buy 100% Farm Assured British Meat. We never add artificial flavours, preservatives or colours. Our award-winning beloved Cornish pasty is the real deal and has Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status to prove it! It’s made with beef, potato, swede & onion with a dash of seasoning to provide that distinctive Ginsters peppery taste which is loved across the whole country, before being wrapped in 80 layers of light puff pastry. Do it any other way and it simply can’t be called a Cornish pasty!
We are the official Savoury Pastry Partner to the English Football League (EFL) and club sponsor of Plymouth Argyle Football Club.
