Joanna Hunter – Managing Director of Piglets Pantry

Renowned for their very tasty hand-filled pies, Piglets Pantry has grown in giant leaps since its birth in 2011.

Back then Joanne was selling up to 120,000 pies a month, supplying the Chelsea Flower Show, the Grand National, as well as Leicester City and Chelsea Football Clubs, amongst others.

Joanne wanted to take the business to the next level, purchase new equipment and launch online, but to do that Piglets needed funding. She found Esme loans and was delighted with how simple and easy the application was. Having the loan has allowed Joanne to take a step out of the kitchen to focus on growing the business and acquiring new customers, as production in the kitchen is at an all-time high.
