The pies have it for top bakers

A LONG-standing Chesterfield bakery has joined the upper crust after proving it had the recipe for success - and winning a national award.

Jacksons the Bakers, based in Chesterfield for more than 60 years, entered its traditional steak pie in a national competition for the baking industry.

The pie won the Quality Product Award, which can now be used on any marketing or advertising by the company for a year.

Owner Trevor Jackson, whose factory is currently based in Brampton but is set to relocate to a larger unit in Clay Cross next month, was presented with the award by TV presenter Kate Thornton at a ceremony at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

Trevor, whose company was founded by his uncle Cyril in 1944, said: "We were delighted to win the national award and can now use it for advertising and marketing for example for the next year to prove how good our pies are."
