Customers are becoming more and more aware of where their food comes from, and more demanding of quality and taste whether cooking for themselves at home or in their takeaway food. The Cornish Pizza Company, has responded to this by announcing a long-term tie up with local butcher, Bateman’s, who will now provide their fresh cooked meat. Over the summer, we ran a trial with a special pizza featuring Bateman’s home made spicy Italian style pork sausage, and also featuring fennel seeds, Gran Pedano cheese, fresh red chilli and finished with fresh rocket.
The trial was a huge success with our customers clamouring for the tasty pizza and delighted with knowing the meat came from freely ranging Cornish pigs sourced from St Agnes’ third generation butcher, Tony Bateman. We have now extended their range to include fresh, cooked chicken breast and chilli beef from Bateman’s Butchers.
Co-owner Jon Crwys-Williams explains the benefits of using a local butcher: “Tony Bateman visits local farms to source his animals and therefore we are receiving the best quality, free range meat. He’s an award-winning butcher in his own right and his own recipe sausages and spicy beef are absolutely delicious. Plus, we can see his butchers from our shop, so sourcing our meat from Tony means zero road miles!”
