About Higgidy

Higgidy was founded by Camilla Stephens and her husband James in 2003. The pair saw the potential for developing high end, handmade pies and quiches – a neglected dish despite being a firm British favourite – so set up Higgidy in pursuit of the perfect, imperfect pie. They are now sold in over 2000 stocking points throughout the UK and in just nine years of trading, Higgidy has grown from Camilla making pies in her domestic oven to 220 employees and £14.5m turnover.

High growth rates has meant for 3 years Higgidy was in the ‘Virgin Fast Track 100’ list of the fastest growing companies in the UK. Furthermore, Higgidy was the fastest growing manufacturer in the country on this list and has been funded through without any external investors being involved.
 
Inspired by her love for food, it is Camilla’s home-cooking philosophy that is at the heart of the Higgidy kitchen. Using simple ingredients that you might find in the kitchen cupboard, with flavours that reflect the seasons, Camilla creates pies that recall a more wholesome age of food.

And as the Higgidy cooks create each one by hand no two pies or quiches are ever the quite the same – they each have that ‘higgidy’ look. 

All of Higgidy’s delicious hand-made pies and quiches are made in their busy kitchen, tucked away in a quiet back street in Shoreham-by–Sea where they currently make 220,000 pies & quiches a week.
