Peter’s named as 2014 Licensing Awards Finalist
Wales’s premier pie maker Peter’s Pies has been named a finalist in the 2014 Licensing Awards.
The Heinz range of rolls and slices, manufactured by Peter’s under license, has been announced as a finalist in the Best Licensed Food or Drink Product category.
Peter’s will be up against five other finalists, including the Mr Men and Little Miss biscuits from Biscuiteers, the Jamie Oliver Ready to Eat Pulses by Fiddes Payne, and the Snowman and Snowdog range by Thorntons.
The prestigious awards evening will be held at the Grosvenor Hotel in Park Lane, London on Tuesday September 16th.
The Best Licensed Food or Drink Product category is sponsored by Rainbow Productions.
Previous winners of the category include Star Wars Ice Lollies from Ice Fresh Foods, the Levi Roots food range from Kimm & Miller, and the Hello Kitty confectionary range from Bon Bon Buddies.
Marketing Director Clare Morgan said: “We are delighted that Peter’s has been named a finalist in these awards.
“The range has been a huge success with both consumers and retailers, and we hope the quality of the products, as well as the innovation behind the launch, helps Peter’s to scoop the win on the night.”
The Heinz range launched in April 2013, followed by the Heinz Big range of pies and pasties in February this year.
