Kiwis Tuck Into Yorkshire Pies!

21st February 2017 Paul Andrews

Handcrafted British pork pies made by a Yorkshire bakery are being shipped Down Under thanks to a partnership with family firm and UK food exporter, Smylie Ltd.

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 targeting the ex pat community and domestic consumers alike.

A range of 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.

Smylie Ltd, a North West based family run food exporter, specialises in sourcing and distributing British food and drink for the export market, supplying supermarkets, distributors, Embassies and food service companies around the world.

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,” continued Roger Topping.

Henry Elsby, International Sales Manager, Smylie Ltd said: “We are pleased to be working with The Topping Pie Company to export its premium quality pork pies into NZ.  The premium quality pies are going down well with ex pats and Kiwis alike and now they have a taste for Toppings, we are planning to target other retailers and additional channels, including food service.”

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.

Smylie Ltd originally started supplying British food products to the Middle East markets, but quickly expanded to meet growing demand in the Far East, Americas, Europe and Australasia.
