More about Vork Pie

Making everything from scratch in a purpose built kitchen, I am committed to being a palm oil free business and use quality ingredients including organically sourced and untreated flour. Organic and fair trade coconut oil and many other organically sourced ingredients. I pre-package my products in biodegradable clear wrappers which you can place in your compost bin. I aim to be as environmentally caring as possible.

I have gained four awards at The British Pie awards : one in 2016, a bronze for the Tamarind Sweet Potato and three bronze awards in 2019 for The Tamarind Sweet potato, The Squashed and The Smoked Beetroot.

Visit me at events, buy my delicious products in pubs and stockists or order for home delivery from my online shop.

I’m proud to have developed my own vegan pastry recipe that does not contain palm oil or soya.
