Tom's Pies launch on Ocado!
Timed to hit the online shelves during British Pie Week, Tom's Pies have launched five flavours exclusively with Ocado.com. The five flavours, Steak & Ale, Chicken, Ham Hock and Leek, Chicken and Wild Mushroon, Mushroom and Spinach with White Truffle Oil and Lamb and Chickpea with Chorizo have all been packaged in to their own stylish boxes designed by www.zigguratbrands.com
Tom Cull, Founder & Director of Tom’s Pies said: “This is an exciting step for us - working exclusively with Ocado means that fans of Tom's Pies all over the country can get their favourites delivered as part of their regular shopping, which will be so convenient for them. We're really proud of our new packaging and hope customers old and new will love the design as much as we do"
The relationship between Tom’s Pies and Ocado was built as one of Ocado’s team sampled the delicious award-winning pies at CarFest (a music and car enthusiast festival run by Tom’s Pies fan Chris Evans) and encouraged Tom to enter Ocado’s Britain’s Next Top Supplier competition and the rest is history!
Clare Banner, Buying Manager at Ocado said: “Adding Tom’s Pies to our range at Ocado is really exciting. Ocado customers are very discerning when it comes to quality, so I know they’ll love getting a little taste of Devon delivered right to their kitchen table as part of their weekly shop.”
