Another Award for The Goodtime Pie Co. Hub Vegan Pies and Rolls

We always knew that the Hub Gourmet Vegan Pies and Rolls that we distribute exclusively for The Goodtime Pie Co. were damn good, and we were right. The Hub Café Vegan Sausage Roll has just won best sausage roll at The Vegan Sausage Awards 2021, organised by the New Zealand Vegan Society. The feedback we have received on the Hub Vegan Sausage Roll has been very positive. People are happy to have a snack sized option and are amazed that it does not contain meat, as the flavours, texture and pastry make it seem like you are eating a traditional sausage roll.

This is not the first time the Hub Vegan range has won awards from the New Zealand Vegan Society, as in 2020 the Hub Vegan Pepper Mushroom won Best Commercial Vegan Pie and the Hub Korma Vegetable Pie was runner up.

We think the secret behind the popularity of the Hub Vegan Pies and Rolls is that; they deliver the pie eating experience that all Kiwis love, there is a big range of flavours, and there is absolutely no compromise on the taste and texture of the fillings and the pastry is golden and flaky. This means

  • Vegans can confidently tuck in knowing it has the Vegan Certification
  • Vegetarians and Flexitarians can enjoy a plant-based pie or roll guilt free
  • Meat Eaters can be a bit adventurous and try something that tastes good.

We know that more and more Kiwis are looking to eat less meat, and we just love being at the forefront of distributing plant-based pie and roll options, that everyone can enjoy.

Goodtime Metro and Metro Mini Pies Now Have A 3 Star Health Rating

We know that kids and adults love the taste and comfort of a quality pie, but that it is desirable if they are eaten as part of an active lifestyle and well-balanced healthy diet.

The newly reformulated Metro Pie range fits the bill- it has been through a stringent testing process and has achieved the high standard 3 Star Health Rating, which is a well-recognised rating system that Kiwis know and trust.

There are 2 sizes available in the Metro range

  • The Metro 170-gm range is suited to older kids and adults who need fuel to keep them going during the day. This range is available in 5 favourite flavours of Mince and Vegetable, Mince and Cheese, Steak and Cheese, Chicken and Vegetables and Potato Top.
  • The Mini Metro range is 130 gms and is an easy to manage size and shape suited to younger kids with lower energy needs and smaller appetites. You can tempt the younger kids with popular Mince and Cheese and Mince and Vegetable flavours.

The Goodtime Pie Co. spent many months developing this range so that it still tastes like a pie should- full of flavour, delicious fillings and flaky pastry. They did it by

  • Using lean beef and chicken which is an important source of protein and iron
  • Using healthy fats essential for energy, and less unhealthy saturated fats.
  • Reducing the sodium and sugar
  • Reducing the kj per 100 gm which helps balance overall energy intake but still provides energy for active growing tweens and teens.
  • Upping the amount of vegetables, legumes, fruit and soy to increase Dietary Fibre. Each pie contains at least 10% vegetables and fruit to help support 5+ a day fruit and vegetables.
  • Being a bit sneaky and pureeing the veges to hide them so that kids are eating healthy without knowing it.


So, if you are interested in Helping Everyone Choose Healthier Food Options the Metro range is ideal – it is “The Tasty Pie That’s Better 4 U”

So, don’t delay give us a call on 0800 8636 287 or click here to get this fantastic range into your school tuck shop or café.
