B&M and Morrisons are selling first-ever Fray Bentos veggie pie in a tin



FRAY Bentos, the famous tinned meat pie, is going veggie for the first time.
The new vegetarian offering is Balti flavoured and goes on sale this week for just £1 in Morrison’s and B&M.
Fray Bentos is launching a new veggie balti pie and it just costs £1
The pie is filled with potato, onion, red pepper, tomato, carrot and peas, in a spicy, balti sauce, topped with puff pastry.
It’s designed to be cooked in the tin and takes just 25 minutes.
This is Fray Bentos’ first foray into vegetarian fare – the range previously only included meaty fillings such as Steak and Kidney, Minced Beef and Onion, Chicken, Chicken & Bacon and Chilli Beef.
The new pie has Vegetarian Society approval and will be available nationwide at an introductory half-price £1 – especially for Pie Week.
If you fancy one, it’s worth stocking up now before the prices go up.
The iconic brand was founded in 1881 and takes its names from the port in Uruguay cow country, where it was originally produced.
It brings back nostalgic memories for many Brits who will recall cooking the pies around fires on camping trips.
The pies have been developed by the innovations team at Baxters Food Group in response to customer demand.
They are made at the Baxters factory in Fochabers, Moray, Scotland.
Lorraine Rothwell, of Fray Bentos, said: “Our pie-hard fans love our range, but we have seen huge demand recently for vegetarian foods which we’re happy to respond to.
“Meat lovers needn’t worry – we’ll never ditch our famous steak pies and puddings, but this means that everyone can get a taste of that famous Fray Bentos home cooked pastry.”Pukka launches personalised pies
