Victorians tasting ‘proper pies’

Tasmanian Bakeries’ iconic National Pies are now available from Woolworths’ Victorian stores. The Pie with the Superior Interior will be supplied to 240 supermarkets across Victoria. National Pies CEO, Shaun Hancock, said: “Our team was extremely busy in July building 150 pallets to fill eight freezer containers in preparation for the product launch.” A family-owned business established in 1942 by Alfred Gough, the Hobart bakery employs 95 people and still bakes its "proper pies" and pastries fresh every day before distributing throughout Tasmania and interstate. Mr Hancock said all their products proudly displayed a Tasmanian Bakeries Quality Guarantee on the packaging. “This reinforces our Tasmanian heritage and our strong commitment to use Tasmanian-sourced ingredients where possible,” he said. “At our core, we believe wholeheartedly in Tasmania and supporting other Tasmanian businesses and Tasmanians. While we directly employ a team of local butchers, bakers and pastry makers, just as importantly, we have always supported Tasmanian farmers and suppliers, and understand the critical role they have played in our journey and in our future.”
