Annie again shows she is in the upper crust of bakers
Published 17 Jan 2018
Chamber member Annie's Bakery has won bronze for its hot savoury Scotch pie and its breakfast pie in the 19th annual edition of the competition.
Annie Body travelled down to last week's ceremony in Cumbernauld with her father John Paul Body.
She said: "We are delighted with our win and can go away with our heads held very high indeed. To have been judged as one of the best in the land against so many of our peers is a huge achievement."
Although it is not the first time the four-year-old business has made its mark in the awards, it is the first chance Annie has had to travel down after bad weather spiked previous planned trips.
She said: "It was great. We were delighted as we have never won for our Scotch pie before. It was a big acheivement as everybody goes in for it. We use good quality local butcher meat so I think that makes a difference."
The firms winning breakfast pie is a top seller locally and includes beans, bacon, eggs, black pudding and sausages.
Annie added: "One of our customers emailled in with the idea and it became our most popular pie."
Two years ago Annie's Bakery won a silver award for its breakfast pie and a bronze for its chicken and black pudding pie. This year's prizes were presented by TV personality Carol Smillie.
More than 80 butchers and bakers entered over 400 pies, sausage rolls, bridies, savouries and apple pies into the competition.
Congratulations to Annie and the bakery team!
