Wilf Lewis, managing director of Lewis Pies, said: “We are extremely proud of our halal range and its instant popularity. This has provided us with the opportunity to expand further into new markets such as the Middle East. It is important for us as a business to expand and make these products available, where there is a demand in the market. Yearsley are the perfect partner to help us achieve this and, in turn, we will assist them in strengthening their offering.

From his part, Adrian Hall, from Yearsley Group, said: “We are extremely pleased to have been offered this opportunity to work with Lewis Pies and are confident in the Crescent range of products being a huge success.”
