Chunk of Devon, the artisan wholesale pastry manufacturer, is celebrating after winning 10 Taste of the West Awards, which brings its award tally to 88.

The company, based in Ottery St Mary, has won more awards across its range of pies, pasties, pork pies and sausage rolls than any other similar operation in the country.

Suzi Bryon-Edmond, joint founder of Chunk of Devon, said: “We are absolutely thrilled – it is a huge result – we have never won so many in any competition. To win 10 in these particular awards in the same year we celebrate our 10th birthday really is the cherry on top of the pie!”

Chunk produces over 40,000 pies and pasties a week and is stocked in farm shops, delis and independents.

In February the company launched three new flavours of sausage roll to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
