Alan Pirie of butcher James Pirie & Son said:-

“We won, I am speechless! To have been given the ultimate accolade today and to be able to call our pie the World Champion as judged by a panel of experts is just excellent. This award is proof of what I have known for a long time that the James Pirie & Son team is the best in the land. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and to selling more of our champion pies than ever.”

TV presenter and entrepreneur Carol Smillie, who presented James Pirie & Son with their award said:-

“I have announced the winner for three years in a row now and I know what it means to win so I am delighted for James Pirie & Son and for what the year ahead holds. But for every winner here today, they can be proud and I hope they all see business boom as they all enjoy their well-deserved success."

“The competition, which has run for 19 years, aims to highlight that bakers and butchers create high quality pastry products day in day out. Recognising the “great and the good” in this way rewards excellence and raises the bar in the industry” says head judge Ian Nelson who oversaw the judging process to ensure only the best pies were recognised and that only the best of the best was crowned world champion.”
