The Topping Pie Company, based in Doncaster, has been chosen by The Co-operative to supply its pies across Yorkshire. 

The retailer will list selected boxed products, including a 190g traditional pork pie, a 450g Yorkshire Farmers’ pork pie and a premium steak pie.

The products launch this month across 25 Co-operative stores as part of the retailer’s Yorkshire range across the county.

Matthew Topping, sales director at The Topping Pie Company said: “We are excited about working with the convenience and supermarket retailer to bring our products to The Co-operative’s customer base. More and more shoppers are supporting local producers like us and choosing products with real Yorkshire origin.”

Kate Jones, head of local sourcing at The Co-operative Food, said: “Our customers have told us they want to buy local products at their Co-op store, so we have responded by teaming up with more than 50 new Yorkshire suppliers, including The Topping Pie Company. Products made in the vicinity of our stores are prized by customers, who want to support locally produced regional food, which often helps to define a specific area such as Yorkshire.”
