Boscastle’s pies, pasties and quiches are destined for the retail and wholesale markets. The company takes its name from a village in Cornwall in the south-west of the UK following a working visit by founder and chief pie maker Terry Cremean, who was inspired by the local delicacy, Cornish pasties.

Patties owners are reportedly seeking to sell the business, possibly as soon as next year. 

The private-equity firm bought the company in 2016 for AUD230m (US$169.4m) and then de-listed it from the Australian Securities Exchange. A public offering of shares could also reportedly be in the offering.

DLA Piper were the corporate advisers to Brunswick, Victoria-based Boscastle for the deal.
