Specialist foodservice group TICCO Foods is to supply Trevithick Bakery in Cornwall’s pasties to wholesalers, independents and national restaurant, pubs and hotel groups.

The announcement of the new distribution deal comes a week after the pasties were the surprise star of French food festival The Lorient Festival, in Brittany, claims the firm.

TICCO will be the bakery’s sole frozen supplier. The range of pasties will include Cheese & Bacon, Cornish Steak and Mediterranean Vegetable, and will be available in a standard size (380g), and smaller cocktail size (180g).

Mark Etherington, managing director of Trevithick’s, said: “Our master pasty maker Ian Trevithick has been baking our pasties for many decades, using a much-loved family recipe that was handed to him through the generations, making the recipe over 150 years old. We are delighted to be working with TICCO Foods, so that even more people across the country can try our unique recipe.”
