Scotland’s top pie maker has launched a vegan version of its iconic Scotch pie – following demand from customers.

A traditional scotch pie features a double crust with a meat filling.

Now Bells has created an animal-free version which is set to launch in Tesco and Sainsbury’s stores across Scotland.

Time to develop

According to Bells managing director Ronnie Miles, the company has spent some time developing the pie. He said: “Bells is part of everyday life in Scotland and has been for many decades.

“This new addition to our family mirrors all that is great about our Scotch pie in a vegan format. 

“It has taken time to develop as we wanted to produce a vegan pie which customers will love just as much as the original. It is a great addition to the range.”

‘Growing demand for meat-free food’

James Lamont, Tesco Scotland’s buying manager, added that the store has seen ‘a growing demand for vegan and vegetarian products across Scotland’.

He added: “Bells is a market-leading pie range and having tasted the new Bells Vegan Scotch Pie, I am confident that it will be a winner with many of our customers.”
