West Cornwall Pasty Co has given its customers the chance to buy its pasties in a frozen format to take away and bake at home. The move comes on the back of customer requests to be able to purchase the pasties to eat when they want.

"For some time now, we have been inundated with customers asking for frozen pasties to take away and bake at home, so we’re delighted that this is now possible," said chief executive Richard Nieto. "And to help keep the pasties frozen for much longer, we have introduced our specially designed insulated freezer bag."

The range of 20 pasties available from the retailer includes the traditional steak pasty, as well as lamb and mint, pork and apple, salmon, and chicken balti.

Vegetarian options are also available, for example cheese, tomato and basil and wholemeal vegetable pasties.

The pasties will be supplied with full baking instructions and will be available from all of West Cornwall’s 71 outlets.
