Lewis Pies, one of the largest pie and pasty manufacturers in the UK, has secured a distribution agreement with one of the largest grocery retail companies in the UK.
NISA (National Independents Supermarket Association) has over 2,500 independently owned retails stores nationwide and has a £1.43bn turnover. The new partnership with Lewis Pies will enable the retailer to sell Lewis’ unique product ranges, such as its Crescent range of halal certified products, to a wider customer base throughout the UK.
The Lewis Pies and Pasty Company has many new product ranges on the horizon, all with bespoke selling points and a focus on products created with locally sourced, high quality ingredients. The collaboration with NISA, a company with a strong ethos of supporting those in the locality, will offer both businesses the perfect partnership.
Wilf Lewis, managing director of the Lewis Pies and Pasty Company, said: “This is a great partnership for the company, as NISA is an extremely popular and successful retailer around the UK. Being able to introduce our products and expose our brands to a wider market is something we strive to achieve. Our halal range is constantly expanding and working with NISA will allow us to take this even further.
“We already have distribution agreements with some national retailers such as Tesco but it is also very important to us to make these products available to communities at a very local level. NISA understands the quality of our offering and the support we want to give to independent retailers. We are looking forward to a very long and successful relationship with the group. “
