About the employer

GNP Co started from a home kitchen just a few years ago, researching and developing pies then selling at local farmers markets. We began with the pastry deciding on an all butter recipe for better flavour, making it really thin to keep the pies crisp and light. We wanted the pies to have straight sides like the traditional Scotch pies we grew up eating, so we commissioned some custom made pie tins.
