Jason Jobling elected as Chair of the Cornish Pasty Association for Third Year Running
Huge congratulations to our master baker, Jason Jobling on his recent re-election as Chair of the Cornish Pasty Association (yes there is such a thing!). The Association represents the interests of pasty-makers of all sizes throughout the county, making sure that across the UK and the wider European Union, only products that are made to the approved recipe can be marketed as a Cornish pasty.
Jason has lived and breathed Warrens Bakery from the age of 12, working there during school holidays and every Saturday learning from the best to become our present day Master Baker.
Jason comments: “I am very proud to be elected Chairman of the Cornish Pasty Association; Cornwall relies heavily on the food and drink industry with 1 in 3 jobs in Cornwall being involved in some way. Food and drink is also the biggest manufacturing sector in the county and to be involved in our ‘hero’ product, the pasty, is wonderful. The next twelve months will be important in developing and building the Cornish pasty ‘brand’; the Association has worked hard to gain the protected name and now we need to demonstrate to the world the quality of our Cornish pasty.”
