Pukka Pies has signed a new deal with Bury Football Club.

Britain’s leading branded pie business will be the sole pie supplier at Bury’s Gigg Lane.

The news comes as Pukka Pies founder Trevor Storer passed away at 83 on 12 August.

The company, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, already has a strong presence in football, serving pies in the Premier League, Football League and Conference Leagues.

Pukka Pies marketing manager, Wayne Greensmith, said: “We are delighted to be supplying Pukka Pies to Bury Football Club and their fans.

“Pukka Pies are famous at football grounds up and down the country and we are very excited about adding Gigg Lane to our portfolio.”

Jonathan Parkinson, commercial manager at Bury, commented: “Match-day food is a vital part of our customer experience at Gigg Lane and we are very pleased to have partnered with Pukka Pies.

“Their reputation in football is second to none and we look forward to working together for a long time to come.”

The company recently announced a partnership with Sheffield United Football Club.
