The Aims of the Cornish Pasty Association


The Cornish Pasty Association was formed in 2002 by a group of more than 50 pasty makers based in Cornwall. The Association exists to protect the quality and the reputation of the Cornish pasty and to stop people being misled by pasty makers who trade off the value of the name without producing a genuine product. Members represent all sizes of business from all over Cornwall. Jason Jobling from Warrens Bakery in St Just is the current chair person.

The Association’s purpose is to:

a) Provide a single respected voice representing and supporting producers and retailers of genuine Cornish pasties.

b) Lead and reflect industry thinking and when necessary become the spokesperson for the members.

c) Develop and implement on-going strategies for the protection and administration of the PGI status, including procedures for regulating the PGI scheme, promotion of genuine Cornish pasties and any other actions in the interests of the members.

d) Co-operate closely with working groups and other organisations and businesses for the benefit of the members.
