It all began with a pasty.
In 1969, dairy farmer Geoffrey Ginster, began baking Cornish pasties in an almost derelict egg packing barn in the Cornish town of Callington. He thought he would be able to bake 20,000 pasties a week. On his first day he only managed 24!
We have come a long way from our humble start but our history and bakery remain firmly rooted in Callington, Cornwall.
We’re proud to use only 100% british farmed beef
We’ve been baking pastry from our cornish bakery since…
At Ginsters, we recognise the importance of sustainability and the responsibility to act upon this. Our three priorities involve using sustainable palm oil, single and broader plastic reduction and food waste reduction. We treat each one of these with the importance they deserve and are integral in our vision for a sustainable future.
