Steak pie is Gold Award winner

Steak PieWe are delighted to announce that Pioneer's Large Steak Pie has been presented with a gold award by the English Beef and Lamb Executive. It was selected along with a handful of others to go forward to the final of "England's Best Steak Pie Competition 2013".

It is packed full our own farm assured Lakeland Beef which is sourced from CA and LA Cumbrian postcode areas. This is then smothered in rich gravy and encased in a shortcrust pastry base and puff pastry egg-glazed top.

Pioneer golden ticket winner revealed

Food Show 2013 WinnerThanks to all our customers who attended the 2013 Food Show on 24th and 25th February. The show was a huge success with around 1,300 visitors placing over 1,900 orders.

The Pioneer Golden Ticket was drawn after the show and we are pleased to reveal that Keith Taylor from the Butchers Arms in Crosby Ravensworth near Penrith was the lucky winner of a £1000 credit note.

Keith’s Area Sales Manager Sue Finnigan went to give Keith the good news. A stunned Keith said ‘I can’t believe it – I never win anything!’


Pioneering energy efficiency

Pioneer Solar Panels1We are proud to announce the installation in August 2012 of the largest privately owned solar panel system in Cumbria on the roof of our coldstore at Rosehill. The 272 panels will be used to help run our chills and offices.

We are committed to having as little as possible negative impact on the environment and this clean energy source will reduce our carbon footprint for years to come, whilst also minimising energy costs.

Directors Barry Garrett and Graham and David Jenkins are pictured here on the roof having a look over the panels prior to the system being commissioned.
