Pie brand’s patty snacks aimed at on-the-go market
Bristol-based pie specialist and restaurant chain Pieminister is venturing into the snack market with a new range of grab-n-go patties available for wholesale to independent retailers.
The “pocket-sized” pastry is pitched at pie-lovers looking to grab a snack on the go and available in four different fillings wrapped in a saffron-spiced pastry: two vegan and two meat-based fillings.
The patty range comprises of Chana Rama, a vegan dhal made with chickpeas, spinach & potato; Holy Chipotle, vegan black bean & chipotle; Jerk Chook, jerk chicken & beans; and Smokin’ BBQ pulled pork.
Each 60g patty is available in a plastic-free, recyclable retail pack of two with an RRP of £2.50, or to order wholesale in multiples of 14. The range is delivered chilled with minimum shelf life of eight days and can be frozen, to defrost and heat on demand.
“No longer will consumers need to suffer greasy, soggy pastry, unrecognisable bland fillings and excessive amounts of plastic packaging, all in the name of ‘convenience’,” said co-founder and MD Tristan Hogg, adding that consumers who already enjoy Pieminister’s pies can enjoy a “smaller, lighter pie alternative”.
