Our favourite Doncaster based family-run bakery, The Topping Pie Company, has shipped its first export orders to Union Jack’s, which operates a chain of UK food stores in Auckland, New Zealand.
A range of Doncaster’s award-winning pies made with British Red Tractor pork meat and quality ingredients, including Dinky Topped Cranberry, Cheese and Pickle and Stilton varieties; Family pork pies; Medium pork pies and Chilli pork pies have been listed by the NZ retailer.
Roger Topping, managing director, The Topping Pie Company commented: “We are excited to secure another export order after our recent success with The Co-operative Society in the Channel Islands. New Zealand is a popular destination for British ex pats and we know they crave a little taste of home, so we are delighted to be able to deliver a slice of Britain with the support of Smylie’s dedicated team of experts,”
The Topping Pie Company diversified from a small family butchers shop founded in1961 to become a multi-award winning speciality pie business supplying a wide range of handcrafted products to retail, independents, wholesale and export customers – but it still retains its traditional family roots.
Toppings Pies are available to buy in the Food Hall at Doncaster Market, Frenchgate Centre and online via toppingspies.co.uk. You can find out more about our favourite pie makers in Issue 14 of Doncopolitan themed Food Glorious Food
