End of an Era for The Goodtime Pie Co.

It was an extremely sad day for the Pollett family  on 13th May 2019 as their father Leo, the founder, mentor and all-round awesome baker departed this world for the “Bakery in the Sky” where they are sure he will bake pies for the angels.

It all started when Leo rang Phil in December 1977 and said “If you come back from your OE we will start a pies only bakery” Leo’s dream. Phil said “yes” so the amazing story began on February 28th 1978. The business has grown to be a multi-million-dollar operation selling over 12 million pies a year which made Leo extremely proud.

Leo was a pedantic baker to say the least. He’d say things like “Never drop the quality, there is always going to be some bugger who will undercut us, we’ll just ignore them and get on with how we do it”

And, when sales would slump for no real reason “Don’t worry, it wouldn’t matter if we wrap them in gold leaf, they wouldn’t sell”. He worked out pretty quickly that the main cause was Lotto week, when, in the early days the whole of NZ would go crazy and go without lunch to buy a ticket.

At Leos service the family and staff promised to keep up his standards pledging that they will never trade quality for price no matter what!!
Leo will be missed for his wise words, his wit and his uncompromising passion for making sure the family continue his heritage and the long tradition of maintaining quality.

After all these years the team at Goodtime are still – “Here to make the Best Pies in the World”.
All in honour of Leo Pollett.

The Goodtime Pie Co. is using Free-Range Eggs-that is something to crow about








The Goodtime Pies Co. has some great news for our customers – whenever we use eggs in our recipes, they are now 100% certified Free-Range Eggs from Zeagold.

Free range hens have a better life as they are able to exhibit natural behaviours such as perching, scratching and nesting and they have access to the outdoors and covered areas to rest. We think a happy hen means a better egg and consequently a better pie.

When we were choosing our supplier of free-range eggs, we wanted to be sure that they were genuine free-range which is why we chose Zeagold. They are New Zealand’s leading egg producer and were one of the first operations to have an approved Risk Management Processes (RMP), working closely with the NZFSA (New Zealand Food Safety Authority) now MPI.  A RMP  involves independent auditing of farms, feed mills and grading and packing centres by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) verification services.  In addition, the company undertakes self-audits of all its operations to ensure that the standards and procedures they have set are being fully complied with, throughout the egg production chain as well as being independently monitored and audited by MAF.

So, if you, like us believe hens should be free-range the next time you devour our Classic Kiwi Bacon and Egg Pie or our No 8 Bacon and Egg Pie you will be eating delicious free-range eggs.

We think using free range eggs is a step in the right direction.
