Q Guild members Jon Thorner`s found themselves in esteemed company at the recent Meat Management Awards. Somerset butcher Jon Thorner`s was nominated a finalist in the Britain`s Best Meat Pie category. Their new flavour Pulled Brisket & Horseradish wowed the tasting panel, amongst an outstanding number of entries from pie producers across the country.

The Meat Management Awards is a national industry event to reward the best of the best in the UK meat sector. The event culminated in a black tie ceremony in Birmingham, at the Hilton Metropole, in June. 

Jon Thorner`s was also given a High Commendation for their Spicy Cumberland Sausage & Red Onion Pie, but just pipped to the top spot for the Brisket & Horseradish Pie by Marks & Spencer. But being nominated a finalist amongst established national producers was a win in itself.  For a business with humble beginnings in 1979, to now being a major player in the local food sector, it is exciting for the products it produces to be recognised amongst the large multiples. 

Jon Thorner`s supply hundreds of independent retailers across the south west of England, and more recently nationally via Ocado but each one of their pies is still individually filled and hand-crimped.
