Garlo’s Pies expands into supermarkets with plans for export markets

Australian pie producer, Garlo’s Pies, is preparing to move into a new production facility in St Peters, in Sydney’s inner west, as the Company expands its distribution channels into major supermarket retailers in New South Wales (NSW).

Garlo’s Pies, which was founded by former National Rugby League (NRL) captain Sean Garlick, his brother Nathan and father Terry in 2001, will now be stocked in Coles and IGA across NSW, and in Woolworths in Sydney.

Garlo’s Pies said the new production facility is five times the size of the previous site, and is “equipped with some of the latest and greatest in baking and cooking equipment”.

The new facility is also part of preparations by Garlo’s Pies to gain Australian Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) accreditation so it can begin exporting pies overseas.

“The AQIS accreditation demands the highest level of standards for export,” Sean Garlick said. “It’s one thing to have international destinations interested in importing pies, but it’s another thing entirely to satisfy an ‘Approved Arrangment’ with each individual importing country to get the licence,” he said.

“Supermarkets are constantly raising the bar in terms of the food safety systems required for their suppliers. We want to exceed those standards,” Sean Garlick said.

Garlo’s Pies said production in the new St Peter’s facility is imminent, with an official opening event planned for mid-June 2013.
