Doncaster Bakery serves up New Zealand Order

A Doncaster-based bakery has won a contract to export its handcrafted pork pies to New Zealand.

The Topping Pie Company has struck a deal with Smylie, which specialises in sourcing and distributing British food and drink overseas.

A range of pies made with British Red Tractor pork meat, Dinky Topped Cranberry, Cheese and Pickle and Stilton, have been shipped 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.

Roger Topping, managing director of The Topping Pie Company, said: “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.”

Henry Elsby, international sales manager at Smylie, added: “We are pleased to be working with The Topping Pie Company to export its premium quality pork pies into New Zealand.

“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.”
