“We’re passionate about celebrating and protecting the heritage of one of Cornwall’s most-loved exports while creating innovative new recipes such as our Ginsters Vegan Quorn Pasty,” Ginsters managing director, Kieran Hemsworth, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“It has won legions of fans since launching last year and to get the seal of approval from such expert judges is a proud moment for us – it shows that you don’t have to miss out on your favorite food to enjoy vegetarian or flexitarian diets.

“To be awarded Highly Commended in these awards is an incredible reflection of the craftsmanship and expertise of our chefs. To receive five accolades is a real honor – our packaging will display the coveted logos with pride.”
