Wigan-based Poole’s Pies has clinched a new deal with Tesco – to supply pies, bakes and sausage rolls for its Finest range.

The products will include Steak & Ale, Chicken & Chorizo and Ham Hock, with the fillings development specifically for the premium range.

They will be available in Tesco stores across the country, from April.

In November, British Baker announced the firm had gained an exclusive contract with the BBC, as it looked to build its foodservice business, as well as a deal to supply its frozen fruit pies and crumbles to Asda.
