Pukka Pies celebrates 50th anniversary

Pukka Pies celebrated its 50th year in business last week, with a huge get-together with long-standing customers, employees and ex-employees.

The gathering took place at the company’s Syston headquarters in Leicestershire, where a new ‘50 years of Pukka Pies’ liveried van was launched.

Co-managing directors Tim and Andrew Storer also announced that, as part of celebrations, they would be giving one extra day of holiday to staff.

Tim Storer said; “Pukka Pies continues to go from strength to strength and we are delighted to be celebrating our 50th year of business in 2013. Quality has been the Pukka Pies mantra from day one and that continues to be our focus 50 years on.  

“It is vital that, in the changing economic and social climate, we continue to innovate and provide our consumers and customers with the superior products that Pukka Pies are renowned for, while continuing to keep apace within the changing marketplace. Today is a celebration of the past 50 years of Pukka Pies and we look forward to being a part of people’s daily lives for many more years to come.”
