Timmy’s Pies has landed a deal with Selfridges to supply its London store with a range of its shortcrust pies.
The business, based near Acton in west London, revealed to British Baker that it had created six varieties for the department store, which will be on sale throughout its London Oxford Street store April as part of Local Food Heroes month.
Varieties include venison, stout & prune, Brookfield Farm veal pie, homity pie, slow roast pork & rhubarb, pork & apple, and Applewood smoked bacon & egg.
Tim Wilkes, owner of Timmy’s Pies, told British Baker: “We approached Selfridges a while back, but they recently got in touch with us about a ‘Local Food Heroes’ month they’re having, to promote local suppliers. They were interested in having us in the deli counter for this event, since we’re a West-London based company.
“We’re totally chuffed. We supply some fantastic shops, delis and pubs across London, and we’re very proud to be in the Selfridges foodhall for this local food producers month.”
He added that firm’s month-long deal to supply its pies to Selfridges could be extended on a more permanent basis.
Timmy’s Pies started in 2010 from a stall at a Chelsea Farmers’ Market, and supplied pubs, delis and shops across London. In total, two employees work for the company producing a range of savoury shortcrust pies.
