Your questions

The law states that if a weight is given on the packaging, it is an offence to sell a product that falls below this weight.  As a small producer, we don't have the resources to weigh each individual pie we make - most of our products are sold fresh so time is of the essence.  (A large food manufacturer would not have this problem as machinery is used to produce the products and the production lines would have in-built weight checkers.)

 Our pies weigh an average of 235g

We would love to stop using palm oil, and are continually on the look out for an alternative to palm fat. As a vegan food producer, our options are very limited... We need a hard fat that can be grated but without using animal fats as traditionally used in pastry. We also do not want to use hydrogenated fats because of the associated health issues.

The palm fat we use is organic and from sustainable farming practices in Colombia (where the governments are actually working with the farmers to plant food products rather than illegal crops).

Please be reassured that we're looking for an alternative to palm oil. Last year we employed a specialist to 'make' a cooking fat that could be frozen and used to make pastry. Sadly when this pastry warmed up it was unmanageable and could not be used.

Sadly no, but you can buy online from one of our online retailers:

All our Clive's products are ready to eat hot or cold. Many people prefer to heat their treat so the easiest way to do this is to pop the pie in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes and enjoy!

Defrost the pie in the fridge overnight, then re-heat for 15-20 minutes, or if you don't have time to defrost it, pop the frozen pie into the oven for 25-30 minutes at 160 degrees.

It will be absolutely perfect for up to 3 months, but if it is at the end of its shelf life, we would recommend just 1 month.

Unfortunately, pastry doesn't microwave very well, so we wouldn't recommend microwaving our pasties or pies, but many people find them just as delicious cold.

Yes, we could arrange this for you. Please call us on 01364 642279 to explore this further.

Yes, it may be possible, so please call Sally on 01364 642279.
