Super Smashing! Hollands pies online
Pie-starved Lancastrians can now get hold of their favourite products online. Holland’s Pies enjoys brand recognition on a par with Coca-Cola in the north west, claims the firm, but its new online store marks the first time the brand will be available to those outside the region.
Lancashire comedian and former Bullseye presenter Jim Bowen was one of the first to receive a special consignment of pies, which he had delivered to the Dorchester Hotel in London.
MD Neil Court Johnston said the decision to open an online shop had been fuelled by the hundreds of requests it gets from across the UK. “Since launching the new website, demand has increased even further and we have recently received requests from as far away as Canada and the USA,” he said. “Holland’s Pies have been a part of Lancashire life for over 150 years, and we felt it was about time to give the rest of the country a chance to taste our products.”
Holland’s will be offering five products from its core range of fresh pies and puddings for UK-wide delivery: Potato and Meat, Meat, Cheese and Onion and Steak and Kidney Pies, plus the Steak and Kidney Puddings. A range of Holland’s branded merchandise, including t-shirts and mugs, will also be available.
