Pasty factory visit is “proper job”

Students get to sample some of the pastry treats produced by Cornish firm Ginsters

TIDDY oggies were on the menu when youngsters from The Woodroffe School travelled to Cornwall.

Business studies students were guests at the Ginsters pie factory, famed for its traditional pasties.

They were taken on an hour long tour of the bakery and saw first-hand how pastry products were made.

In a highly informative trip students were introduced to the Ginsters business, methods of production and some of the marketing techniques used to sell the company�s range of pastry products.

Visit organiser, Mike Holding said: “Ginsters provided a fascinating insight into food manufacture and marketing, but also in the passion for producing these local delicacies.

“The added bonus for us all was the pasty tasting session and a visit to the staff shop where students enjoyed picking up some bargains to keep them going on the return journey!”
