Proper Cornish Group
Cornish Food Manufacturing - Proper Cornish (Bodmin) & Furniss (Reduth)
What we do:
At Proper Cornish we are passionate about quality pastry filled with great tasting ingredients, made properly in Cornwall, for people who love food. Since 1988 our purpose has made us the UK’s leading handmade Cornish Pasty Manufacturer and experts in filled savoury pastry products. As a supplier of pasties, sausage roles, slices and pies our products have excited appetites nationwide.
At Furniss we have been crafting quality biscuits using perfected recipes since 1886. Today we bake as we have always done, in Cornwall using timely recipes, quality sourced ingredients, driven by the history of John Cooper Furniss over 130 years ago. Furniss is now the only Company in the world licensed to make the Original Cornish Fairing which is available nationwide alongside our gingerbread, shortbread, oat biscuits and our new ginger range.
Why we became a healthy workplace:
With a large team of colleagues across two sites and all of us spending up to 50% of our waking hours at work we wanted to increase engagement, raise awareness, remove barriers and make various health and wellbeing activities more accessible for all. The Healthy Workplace framework has been an integral part of achieving this; taking the concept of a healthy workplace being embedded as the norm, and making it a reality.
