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.
Everyone who makes genuine Cornish pasties is welcome to become a member of the CPA. 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.
Retailers who sell Cornish pasties supplied by a certified producer can become one of our Recognised Retailers.
Being part of the Association is a way for both producers and retailers of genuine Cornish pasties to stand out and reassure their customers that they are getting the real Cornish deal.
