Prima Bakeries will be backing Cornish Cricket this summer in a partnership agreement which will benefit clubs, players and supporters alike. Prima, a top three finisher in each of the last four “World Pasty Championships”, will become “The Official Pasty of Cornwall Cricket”.
The partnership will see Prima offering its pasty products at discounted rates to Cornwall’s 70 League Clubs with special deals also being available to all 5,000 members on Cornwall Cricket’s supporter database. Prima will further support grass roots cricket in the county by making a cash contribution to Cornwall Cricket each time a pasty is sold to a Club or supporter.
The company will also sponsor the “Prima Trophy” (which will be awarded to the wicketkeeper who makes the most dismissals in the 2017 season).
The partnership also provides Prima access to Clubs and supporters of Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire Cricket, extending the company’s reach to over 700 Clubs and in excess of 50,000 supporters across all six counties.
Mark Norton, MD of Prima Bakeries, commented; “we are delighted with this link up with Cornish Cricket. The partnership gives us a great opportunity to grow our successful mail order business and to expand our wholesale operation into over 700 cricket clubs in the South West”.
Simon Menneer, CEO of Cornwall Cricket, added; “Prima is one of Cornwall’s iconic brands and I am excited to welcome Mark and his team as the Official Pasty of Cornwall Cricket. I look forward to seeing the Prima name at our cricket grounds this summer”.
