Doncaster based bakery family-run bakery, The Topping Pie Company, are celebrating after launching two new product ranges this month, one of which will see them venture outside of their core pie business.
The company’s new 225g speciality pork pie range, created to meet demand for smaller pies with more flavour varieties, offers six products including Pork and Chorizo; Pork and Piccalilli; Pork and Black Pudding; Pork Chicken and Plum Chutney; a new Yorkshire Farmers and new Scrumpy Pie. The pies have been designed for sale at farm shops, delis, pubs and cafes where customers are looking for a proper pie with a premium taste and homemade look and feel.
Alongside the small speciality pork pie range, for the first time Toppings will also introduce a range of ready meals inspired by family recipes ‘like nanna used to make’ offering handmade traditional pies and pasta meals, as well as portioning pies for the deli counter.
The new range includes a number of teatime favourites such as Lasagne; Shepherd’s Pie; Cheese and Vegetable Pasta available in a variety of sizes as well as Corned Beef and Potato Pie.
All the bakery’s new pork pie products are onsite at their South Yorkshire base and are made with prime British Red Tractor pork pie meat and fresh ingredients with a hot water pastry crust. The new Pork and Black Pudding variety also includes traditional Yorkshire black pudding made in-house by the Toppings team.
Matthew Topping, Sales Director at The Topping Pie Company said: “We are delighted to introduce both our new speciality pork pie range and our traditional recipe ready meals, our first product launch outside of our core pie business.
“We’re confident the ranges will be well received by food lovers and connoisseurs who buy on quality and taste and not on price alone when it comes to selling to their customers. Our move into the ready meal sector comes at a time when all businesses need to adapt and look for new opportunities in an ever changing and challenging market.”
Founded in 1961, The Topping Pie Company has transformed from a small family butchers into a multi-award winning speciality pie business supplying a wide range of handcrafted products to retail, independents, wholesale and export customers whilst retaining its traditional family, roots and ethos to producing a first class product.
