Double Celebration at Redruth’s Prima Bakeries
Cornish Pasty producer and bakery business Prima Bakeries is celebrating after four members of staff passed demanding training programmes, despite working through the company’s busiest season to date. October half term saw confirmation of passes with flying colours by Lee Church, Kevin Woolcock and Emma Norton on their year long BTEC Level 2 in team leading. Ellie Cope also completed her BTEC Level 2 in Customer Service with well above average marks.
This was all completed while Prima has enjoyed its busiest 12 months ever. Mark Norton, Managing Director, said “We have seen record numbers in our Scorrier based shop, pasties by post and wholesale deliveries. Although we have grown every year since we started, 2016 has been an exceptional year. It has been a real achievement for the team to complete these demanding qualifications at the same time as working as hard as they do”.
All four employees are rightly proud of their achievements. Ellie said “I really enjoyed the course and I gained a lot of knowledge from doing it, I would definitely look to undertake further training, in order to further my career”. Mark Norton hopes that continued training of staff will enable the business to continue to grow in a sustainable way. “I need a strong team around me to ensure we can continue to offer the great service we do during this rapid time of growth”.
Now employing over 60 staff, up from 19 in 2010, Prima Bakeries has plans to further expand the bakery to keep up with the demand and continue to provide jobs for local people all year round.

10.09.15 Prima bakeries are stirring up support for Macmillan Cancer support’s Biggest Coffee
This September Prima customers will be able to indulge in Cornish cream teas or pick up a limited edition Coffee Morning Kit and know they are making a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Cornish Bakery has pledged to donate 10% from the sale of their cream teas and a special Coffee Morning Kit available online on the run up to the event.
Prima’s MD Mark Norton said “Macmillan is a cause that is close to many people’s hearts, including many of our employees, which is why we want to support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.”
With over 2 million people living with Cancer in the UK today, the demand for Macmillan professionals has never been higher.
Mark added “Not everyone is a master baker so we wanted to offer an affordable product that people can have delivered to their door with minimum fuss”
04.09.15 Prima Bakeries Gives Students a Taste of Home
Cornwall’s Prima Bakeries is supporting students starting university across the country by launching a University Cornish Pasty Survival kit.
Prima’s MD Mark Norton said “We have had students working for us this summer who told us how they longed for a decent pasty while studying up country. It made us think how many Cornish parents must be out there worried about their children spending their student loans on cheap lager rather than a decent meal.”
As a result, Prima has created a Cornish Pasty care package which can be ordered online and shipped anywhere in the mainland UK for homesick Cornish students or Freshers whose culinary skills stop at the microwave. The survival kit includes Prima’s award winning pasties along with instructions on how to bake the ‘oggies’ to absolute perfection. A tin of baked beans, the ultimate student food, is also included to help the survival package last longer!
Mark added “Starting university can be daunting enough, so a little taste of “home” will go a long way to helping students settle in to their new life. Parents will have the comfort of knowing that they are sending their loved ones a wholesome, feel good food package and unlike most “fast food” actually contains vegetables.
Prima Bakeries is one of Cornwall’s fastest growing bakery businesses and a proud member of the Cornish Pasty Association. It won first place for its Peppered Steak Pasty and second for the Traditional Steak Cornish Pasty at this year’s World Pasty Championships held in March at the Eden Project.
