The Aussie meat pie, Four’n Twenty, Noon Pies, Wedgewood, Mrs Macs and Patties just to name a few of our pastime favourites.
Four n Twenty is iconic in Oz and has been around since 1947. Just recently the pie brand has returned back to Australia = Home! Originally created by L. T. McClure in a small Bendigo Bakery..
An American multi-national generated outrage eight years ago when they bought the iconic Aussie company. They sold a few brands back to Australia because the company says meat pies are not desirable enough in todays more health conscious market. What a win for Australia! Nanna’s, Wedgewood & Herbert Adams were other iconic brands that came back to our shores.
Patties Bakery started in 1966 and is a family business run by six brothers, and it has a market share of about 15 per cent.
Once upon a time Australians happily bought a meat pie and flavoured milk for lunch from the corner milk bar, however now they are eating many other sorts of cuisines, searching for spicy & oriental styles. People attending the football, where many of these were consumed, have also changed their eating habits, and venues now offer a wide choice of foods than pies n chips.
