Our Awards

  • As well as five Silvers and two Bronze medals, our Gluten Free Ranger took Gold in the 2018 British Pie awards. Now all of our GF pies are gold medallists, making them some of the best free-from pies in Britain.

  • Pieminister’s Gluten Free Heidi pie was crowned Class Champion in the Free From Pie Class at the British Pie Awards in March 2016, making it one of the top 20 pies in the entire competition. The Gluten Free Moo also came in the top three in this class, winning a Gold Medal and the ‘Highly Commended’ title.

  • We won a whopping 11 gold stars the Great Taste 2018 awards. Our growing range of meat-free pies did especially well: Heidi and our Christmas special, Christingle, were awarded two stars each and Kevin and Cheesy Rider each got a star. Our classic meat pies Moo, Kate & Sidney, Matador, Free Ranger and Fungi Chicken were also awarded one star each.

  • We won seven gold stars in 2017, three of which were awarded to our MooDog pie. Three stars is the highest number one product can achieve, placing this pie in the top 165 out of a whopping 12,366 products judged.

  • The Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink. Often described as the 'Oscars' of the food world we've won over 30 of these awards since 2005.

  • Our gluten free pies are made in our gluten free-specific kitchen in Bristol and we are licensed by Coeliac UK to carry the Crossed Grain symbol. We cook and store the pies separately at all times to prevent cross-contamination.
