Peter's promises a ‘game changer’
Pie and pasty specialist Peter’s Food Service is teaming up with a former BBC Masterchef judge to develop its service menus across its core business.
John Benson-Smith, the consultant executive chef to Manchester City Football Club, will work alongside Peter’s to review and improve recipe development, and increase innovation. Focusing on the football stadia business, one of his first tasks will be to develop a ‘football pie’ for match days.
Managing director Neil Court-Johnstone said: “We want to develop the very best products that will appeal to all age groups and tastes.”
Benson-Smith added: “That doesn’t necessarily mean champagne and caviar. It’s simply about doing things right with real, well-sourced quality ingredients that taste great.”
Peter’s Food Service has grown from a small pie manufacturer in South Wales to a well-known brand with an annual turnover of £65m. It employs 700 people and supplies sports stadia, fast food outlets, fish bars, restaurants, schools, hospitals and hotels.
Benson-Smith, a former Northern Chef of the Year, was the leader of Tony’s Blair’s Better Hospital Food Initiative as well as a BBC Masterchef judge.
