In 2006 we set off on a mission... to bring our beloved Cornish pasties to the poor souls who were trapped in an office while the rest of us were surfing. We jumped in our van and we’ve never looked back (except when reversing). One thing led to another and now we are delivering our works of art to hungry people all over the country. So, take a moment to savour this pasty - it’s handmade in Cornwall by our Phat Chefs, to our favourite recipes (passed by the Phat Tasters), with the best ingredients (so our mums approve)... and as for having fun, you’re already remembering the good times aren’t you?
How we started
"We LOVE pasties!" Family and holidays in Cornwall inspired us to bring fabulous Cornish pasties to the masses. Starting from our kitchen table, with pasties made in Cornwall, we set about delivering pasties and homemade goodies to businesses and events in our quirky Phat van. Customers loved our products and funky surf-inspired brand. Now we have created a range of pasties, pies and handheld snacks that are available to foodservice operators and their customers everywhere to serve up a slice of Phat. HOT OFF THE PRESS - We have just followed up our 2020 World Pasty Championships, Cornish Pasty Champion and have just WON the 2022 World Pasty Championships Savoury Award, for our vegan Peppered Steak-Less Pasty !
In 2021 we also won seven awards at the British Pie Awards and Taste Of The West with 3 Golds.
