We’re here to support anyone who produces or sells genuine Cornish pasties by promoting and protecting its recognised provenance.
Producer Membership is open to all producers of Cornish pasties that comply with the PGI specification. You can read and download the full specification passed by the EU.
The Recognised Retailer scheme is open to anyone who sells Cornish pasties that comply with the PGI specification but does not make them themselves.
Producers who are also retailers are covered by the Producer Membership; they do not need to join as Recognised Retailers as well.
If you are interested in joining the Association, simply ring us on 01872 865101, or email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch with you right away. The fee is based on the number of pasties produced (for producers) or the number of outlets (for retailers). Annual fees start at £250 + VAT for Producer Membership and £100 + VAT for Recognised Retailers.
