Holland's Pies

Holland's Pies

Holland's Pies is a manufacturer of pies and puddings based in Baxenden, near Accrington in Lancashire, England. The company also produce pasties, sausage rolls and pork pies.


Holland's was founded by John Whitaker in 1851 as a confectioners shop in Haslingden, Lancashire. In 1890, Walter Holland bought the business and moved to a much larger bakery in 1907, from where pies were delivered locally by horse and cart. The first of Holland’s famous brightly painted vans appeared in 1927, and by 1938 there was a fleet of 20 vans making regular deliveries around the North West. Cake production ended at the bakery due to sugar rationing during World War II, and meat pies became more popular.

After the war, in 1946, the decision was taken to sell the company to R.Gummer Ltd., a provisions firm of London and Liverpool. Holland’s was bought out by Pork Farms in 1972, who were then bought by Northern Foods in 1979. Holland's are now part of one of the UK’s major food manufacturing groups.

Holland's pies and puddings are sold at 85% of chip shops in North West England. [ [http://www.hollandspies.co.uk/about/company/index.aspx Hollands - About us ] ]
