CHAMPIONING AND PROTECTING THE AUTHENTICITY AND DISTINCTIVENESS OF THE CORNISH PASTY.
The Cornish Pasty Association is the home of everything you need to know about the Cornish pasty. Originally created by a collective of Cornish pasty producers concerned about the number of products being sold across the country as ‘Cornish Pasties’ despite bearing no resemblance to the real thing, the Association now administers the PGI designation granted in 2011 by the EU and is here to help anyone who would like to make, buy, sell or find out more about Cornish pasties.
We have members large and small, from household names producing millions of pasties each year, to tiny bakeries who keep hunger at bay in small towns and villages up and down the county. Everyone who makes genuine Cornish pasties is welcome in the CPA.
What we can’t say is who makes the best one – that’s for you to find out!!
