Pies and Pasties
Drake & Macefield won one of only seven diamond awards presented in the annual Smithfield Awards, run by the Q Guild.
The winning product – Steak & Kidney Pie – received maximum marks in the pies and bakery section and was one of three gold and two silver awards landed by Drake & Macefield. This is only one of the products that make up our range alongside our ever popular pork pies.
We’ve managed to win a haul of gold awards in the national Q Guild’s 2009 Smithfield Awards, two for our traditional pork sausage one for stuffed pork loin and a Christmas special.
The Smithfield Awards, held in London, are among the most highly coveted in the meat industry and a true indication of excellence. More than 500 products from Q butchers throughout the UK were assessed by an independent panel of experts. We’ve also won awards recently for our Thick Pork Sausage, Lincolnshire Sausage and Beefburger with Chilli & Cheese.
