Simple Simon’s Perfect Pies was established in 2005 in Coulter, a tiny village in the south of Scotland. The team of seven people creates recipes, bakes the pies and dispatches then all over Britain. The pies can also be found in Wholefoods, Waitrose and Dobbies, as well as a host of delis, farm shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The team also sells directly to customers online and at farmers markets and food shows.
Their boxes are packed with ice gel, which retains suitable temperatures for 48 hours. Orders over £50 or more benefit from post and packaging free of charge, while for orders between £30 and £49.99 the postage and packaging charge is £7.95 and for orders below £30 the post and packaging is £9.95.
