Our Story

It all started with our Cornish Pasty

Ginsters original factory

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 our home, Callington, Cornwall.
