The British Pie Awards 2017 are coming up on the 8th March. It is great that Pies will hit the headlines and there are 100s of pies entered into the various categories. We hope that the event is a great success. We particularly hope that Lancashire Pies bring home their fair share of awards.

However, we at the LPPAS are concerned about the make up of the judging panel. There is a heavy Melton Mowbray/East Midlands/Southern bias to the panel. Unless this issue is redressed it puts Northern Pies at a disadvantage. We have raised this issue in an open letter to the organisers of the British Pie Awards. Let’s hope that they take steps to address this important issue. Read our open letter here pieawardsletter
