At Friary Mill, we are passionate about our products and strive to ensure that only the best ingredients are used for our pasties, cakes and savouries.
We use local suppliers where possible and our fresh ingredients are delivered to our bakery daily. Our greengrocer brings us potatoes pulled straight from the ground; quality meat comes directly from a local butcher; and our pastry is handmade at our factory in Cattedown. Every single pasty is hand prepared and baked freshly every day to ensure you get the best possible product.
Some of the awards our products have achieved include:
Our Curried Vegetable Pasty (suitable for vegans) came 3rd in the World Pasty Championships in 2019
Our Danish Pastries, bread and pasties won “Best in Class” at the CBA Western Bakery Championships (2018-2019)
To create the best tasting products, not only should we use the best ingredients but we also need the best people to help us serve our loyal customers. We credit our success to the support and commitment of each and every member of the Friary Mill team.
We’re dedicated to supporting our colleagues, and recently launched the Friary Mill Academy – an in-house training scheme designed to improve the leadership and management skills of our team to help create our future leaders.
We believe that learning is an ongoing process and a number of our colleagues have undertaken apprenticeships whilst working with us so that they have the opportunity to earn while they learn. One of our apprentices, Emma Milner, won Champion Apprentice at the Western Region Bakery Championships in 2023.
We love our local communities and promise to give our customers the best standards of service. We support many local charities with fundraising efforts and provide our products for events. Any unsold products at the end of each day are donated to Help for the Homeless Plymouth at The Garage Cafe
We are also proud sponsors of:
