Welsh baker Lewis Pies, based in Swansea, has struck a deal with supermarket chain Carrefour, one of Europe’s leading supermarket chains.

Nine products from Lewis Pies’ bake-off range have been ordered by Carrefour, including Cornish pasties, sausage rolls and lamb oggies - a lamb and vegetable pasty.

"We are thrilled to be going into Carrefour. We already export to customers in southern Spain and Lanzarote through Euro Foods, but after attending the Alimentaria International food and drink exhibition in Barcelona this year, we picked up contracts in Malaga, Majorca and Tenerife," explained company secretary Pat Lewis. "We are now looking to develop our market in the Canary Islands and the Balearics."
