Our pies and puds are made in the north west by people of the north west so this community is very important to us. We employ over 400 people at our bakery and generations of families have been - and still are - part of our family. We're proud of the things we do locally and here are just a few examples ...
It’s in all our interests that young people grow up knowing about food, nutrition and healthy eating. That’s why, when we were approached by the Lancashire Education Business Partnership (LEBP), we were pleased to begin a series of workshops for local schools, covering simple food microbiology and advice on the safe handling of food. We also offer the chance to take a look around our factory and run mini ‘taste panels’.
Holland’s is always looking to inspire young minds. If you’re interested in work experience here at our factory and offices, then please take a look at our ‘Join Us’ page for more details.
Our pies and puds are eaten at sports stadia throughout the UK. As a result, we think sport is a great place to start tackling the challenges laid out by the government to the food industry for changing the UK’s dietary habits. From 2009 onwards, Holland’s will be exploring ways in which we can become actively involved in amateur football throughout the north west. We want to promote active lifestyles and the understanding that there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a Holland’s pie during the match – if you have the occasional kick-around yourself too!
Lancastrian and Proud!
Holland’s have been part of the fabric of North West life for generations. Lancastrian’s of all ages and walks of life enjoy our pies and puds, and many have left the Red Rose county for pastures new – if you’re one of them you might be interested in taking a look at the Lancastrian and Proud website.
