Whilst there are a number of types of pork pie, the most traditional is the Melton Mowbray pie. To manufacture one of these pies, food producers must not only follow a very specific set of rules in terms of ingredients and process, but must also be located within a very specific region of central England.

Melton Mowbray pies (like Parma Ham) have been awarded PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status by the European Union. As such, Addo Food Group's Tottle Bakery have been granted permission to the ultimate traditional pork pie.

Pork pies are consumed “on the move”, as a traditional snack, in lunchboxes, as the centre of a main salad meal, or as part of summer picnics. They comprise specially seasoned pork, encased in a traditional hot water pastry.
