    Country Choice supports pasty charity during Cornish Pasty Week

    Provider of in-store bakery and food to go solutions for the convenience retail sector, Country Choice, has announced that it will be donating 5p to the Cornish Pasty Community Fund for every one of its “Real Cornish” branded pasties that it sells during Cornish Pasty Week, 26 February to 3 March.

    This year, the Cornish Pasty Community Fund aims to support a new initiative promoting cookery within Cornish schools. The funds raised during Cornish Pasty Week will be allocated to provide schools across Cornwall and Scilly with the necessary resources for regular cooking activities. This could include purchasing equipment and ingredients, facilitating cooking clubs, or supporting other engaging food initiatives. As part of the initiative, professional pasty makers will collaborate with schools, conducting sessions to teach children the art of crafting authentic Cornish pasties. The goal is not only to impart culinary skills but also to foster a love for cooking and appreciation for Cornish culinary traditions.

    “Having recently re-branded our ‘Real Cornish’ range we are particularly excited to be part of this meaningful initiative, contributing to the development of culinary education in Cornish schools,’ said Phil Carratt, the company’s Head of Marketing and Strategy. “By supporting the Cornish Pasty Community Fund, we aim to make a positive impact on the community by giving schools the chance to provide fun and informative experiences for children that also uphold the culture of the region.”
