South Yorkshire family-run bakery, The Topping Pie Company, has increased sales of its award winning pies into the cruise liner market thanks to a partnership with Cavendish Ships Stores Ltd, the UK’s premier ships stores suppliers.
The Doncaster-made pies have been so well received, the bakery will now be supplying more than 20 cruise liners, increasing from just 6 ships since the partnership began 4 years ago.
Passengers and crew on world leading cruise ships will now be able to tuck into top quality traditional hot eating and cold cutting pies from Yorkshire.
A range of traditionally handcrafted pies made to family recipes using premium Red Tractor pork and locally sourced ingredients will be supplied, including multi award winning Speciality pork pies such as the Yorkshire Farmer’s pork pie, a layer of chicken and ham marinated in whole grain honey mustard with a pork base. Or the Regal Game and Poultry pork pie, with rich favours of sweet and savoury.
The range also includes a hot eating offer of prime steak and pigs kidney pie, cracked black pepper chicken with portobello mushroom; ham pie and more.
Cliff Gregory, sales and marketing manager, Cavendish Ships Stores Ltd said:
“We source fine quality items for the UK cruise market and always look for distinct, quality products that stand out in both taste and appeal. The Topping Pie Company originally supplied just 6 cruise ships when the partnership was formed and the bakery’s range of first class pies has been so popular with guests, we decided to launch the products on more ships.”
Matthew Topping, Sales and Marketing Director, The Topping Pie Company said:
“Food, of course, is a crucial part of the cruise experience. Millions of people who travel on cruises every year expect memorable meals and top quality food – we delighted that passengers and crew alike have enjoyed our pies and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Cavendish to serve up our premier pies to voyagers and to secure a bigger slice of the high-end cruise market.”
