Organic pork pie producer Brockleby’s has won a contract to supply its pies to supermarket chain Waitrose.The company, from Asfordby Hill, near Melton Mowbray, will be putting its wares into a Waitrose store in Stamford early next year. Brockleby’s hopes its pies will later go nationwide with the chain.The contract was signed when the company was contacted by Waitrose after winning a taste competition in the retailer’s Made in Britain Awards, organised in association with Country Living magazine. Ian Jalland of Brockleby’s said: “Our pies are very popular, but they aren’t widely available at the moment. I don’t know what volumes are involved, but it will be a significant piece of business for us.”A Waitrose spokeswoman said: “We are working on the launch of the pies into the Stamford branch with a view to extending the product into more stores at some point in the future.”Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association chairman Matthew O’Callaghan said it was “extremely good news that the excellence of Melton Mowbray pies has been recognised by a major supermarket”.

Sophomore quarterback Austin Wilson won’t practice Tuesday due to an upper-body injury and he is day-to-day, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said during his weekly teleconference Tuesday.Wilson sustained the injury during the fourth quarter of Syracuse’s 38-20 loss to Florida State on Saturday and didn’t return to the field. Freshman quarterback AJ Long, who threw for 167 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, will take the “dominant” amount of the first-team reps at quarterback during practice this week, Shafer said.Shafer said after Saturday’s game that Wilson had a “pretty good headache,” but called it an “upper-body injury” when asked if it was a concussion and said the same on Tuesday.The head coach added that the Orange’s coaching staff isn’t worried about overworking Long, who sat out the end of preseason camp with a sore shoulder, during practice this week.SU (2-4, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) plays Wake Forest (2-4, 0-2 ACC) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on Saturday at noon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on October 14, 2014 at 12:35 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+
