Prima Bakeries has been at the heart of Cornish baking since 1978. Originally established by the Buist family as a pizza base manufacturer, the business quickly evolved into the fully fledged craft bakery it is today. Ross, the third generation of the Buist family to bake at Prima, ensures that all our products are made to the very highest quality and flavour each day.
Prima’s bakery production site is adjacent to the A30 at Scorrier near Redruth in the heart of the county. We are literally opposite the world renowned Rodda’s creamery, manufacturers of Cornwall’s most famous Clotted Cream…just metres away from where we make our lovely scones!
Prima makes all the items you would expect of a Cornish bakery: Cornish Pasties, Saffron Cakes, Hevva Buns and Cream Tea Scones as well as some you might not: Quiches, Paninis and Triple Choc Brownies! We produce over 200 different product lines on a daily basis including many different types of handmade bread and rolls, a range of delicious pasties and savoury items as well as cakes and confectionery. From Cherry Flapjack to Chocolicious Cake, Sausage Rolls to Meat Patties and Farmhouse Loaves to Yeast Buns, we have something for everyone.
As a wholesale bakery serving clients across the length and breadth of Cornwall, you will find Prima bakery goods throughout the county; sold in convenience stores and independent retail outlets as well as being served in pubs, hotels, cafes and restaurants throughout the Duchy. To find the nearest retail stockist to your location, please see our stockists’ page. We have a bakery shop situated at our production site at Scorrier – freshly baked pasties just metres from where they are made each day!
We look forward to serving you!
