The Pie is one of the icons of British cuisine. Savoury or sweet, the British eat millions of them every year.
These Awards are a national celebration of British Pies in all their varieties and they have been running since 2009.
The Awards are held in Melton Mowbray, the Rural Capital of Food, and hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.
Heygates was proud to sponsor the 'Small Producer Award' this year which was awarded to Great North Pie Co.
