Chunk of Devon Win Champion Pasty at Pie Awards 2019

Champion pasty comes from Devon!

Chunk of Devon Win Champion Pasty at the British Pie Awards…again!

Chunk, a Devon based pie and pasty maker, have won the much-coveted award of Champion Pasty at the 2019 British Pies Awards for the second time. Chunk’s award-winning recipe won the award back in 2009 – and caused a bit of a stir (to say the least!) with their neighbours in Cornwall. But this year, with tough competition from other Pasty makers, including those from Cornwall, the Chunk Steak Pasty beat them all!

A cafe in Exeter called 'Wild Stuff' has been nominated for a national award which has been launched by Lansinoh. The awards are designed to celebrate places and people across the country supporting breastfeeding mums.   

In 2015, 776,950 babies were born in the UK. Yet just 0.5% of UK mums are breastfeeding their newborn at 12 months, despite recommendations from the World Health Organisation to continue breastfeeding into your baby's second year. With British breastfeeding rates among the worst in the world, could the culprit be society’s attitudes towards breastfeeding?
