New Hub Gourmet Vegan Pepper Mushroom Pie

We have good news for Vegan Pie lovers- we have just launched our new Hub Gourmet Vegan Pepper Mushroom Pie. It is made with portobello and button mushrooms, spinach, potato, and kumara, simmered in a rich peppery coconut cream sauce with a generous sprinkle of vegan cheddar cheese.

It’s definitely delicious. In fact, it won Best Commercial Vegan Pie at the 2020 Vegan Pie Awards.

Our Hub Gourmet Vegan Pie and Café Roll Range are all vegan certified so you can be sure they are all free from any animal derived ingredients.

What’s Involved In Gaining The Vegan Certification?

  • The Vegan Certified programme is administered by the NZ Vegetarian Society, in collaboration with the Vegan Society of Aotearoa NZ
  • The Vegan Certified trademark helps consumers to easily identify vegan products from reputable manufacturers. In order to be granted the verification we have to guarantee that all our Hub Gourmet Vegan Pies and Café Rolls are free from animal-derived ingredients.
  • The NZ Vegetarian Society Vegan Certified trademark cannot be displayed on any product that contains, consists of, or has been produced with the aid of products consisting of or created from, any part of a living or dead animal, or any substance that has originated from an animal.
  • In order to be eligible for the Vegan Certified trademark, we guarantee that no cross-contamination occurs between the vegan product and non-vegan products/ingredients during production. If the same production line is shared with non-vegan products/ ingredients, thorough cleaning must be carried out before vegan production commences. This extends to all associated machinery, equipment, utensils, surfaces and clothing, which must remain free from non- vegan products/ingredients before vegan products are touched, prepared, produced or packaged. Clear procedures must be in place to ensure correct packaging is used and errors do not occur.
  • Genetically modified ingredients or products containing genetically modified ingredients are not eligible to be licensed to carry the Vegan Certified trademark. (An exception is made for ingredients that contain genetically modified material at levels of less than 1% of that ingredient.)

New No 8 Premium Mince-atarian Mince & Cheese Pie

Check out our new our No 8 Premium Mince-a-tarian Mince and Cheese Pie. It is perfect,  if you love meat pies, but are moving to a flexitarian diet as you want to eat less meat. It is also ideal for vegetarians and has been approved by the Vegetarian Society of New Zealand.

It is a BIG 220g and made from a savoury Quorn mince, then topped with a blend of tasty and mozzarella cheese, and wrapped in our delicious flaky pastry.  We reckon if you threw some at your hardened carnivore mates, they wouldn’t have a clue that it is meat free. It tastes just like the real thing – No Bull!


Quorn mince, a mycoprotein, is made through a natural fermentation process, much like how cheese is made, but Quorn mince is fermented from non-animal inputs.

It is a great source of protein

Quorn’s mycoprotein is a nutritionally healthy protein source that is naturally low in saturated fat and high in fibre and contains no cholesterol. It contains all nine essential amino acids and a variety of vitamins and minerals including potassium, calcium & phosphorus, and smaller amounts of selenium, magnesium & zinc.

And it is great for the health of our planet

  • Carbon Trust has certified the carbon footprint of Quorn’s mycoprotein since 2012. It the first meat free protein source to have third party carbon footprint accreditation.
  • Producing Quorn’s mycoprotein requires 90% less land, water and carbon emissions than producing animal proteins.

The Goodtime Time Pie Co. launch Metro Pies with a 3 Star Health Rating

Metro Pie Logo

We know that kids and adults love the taste and comfort of a quality pie but that it is desirable if they are eaten as part of an active lifestyle and well-balanced healthy diet. So, we decided to reformulated our Metro Pie range to achieve the high standard 3 Star Health Rating which is a well-recognised rating system that people know and trust.

This is our way of Helping Everyone Choose Healthier Food Options but still have the chance to enjoy pies which are a kiwi favourite.

The 3 Star Rating means Metro Pies can be enjoyed more often than normal pies which is why we say the Metro range is “The Tasty Pie That’s Better 4 U”. There are 2 sizes available in the Metro range

Our Metro 170 gm range is suited to older kids and adults who need fuel to keep them going during the day. This range is available in 5 flavours: Mince & vegetable, Mince and Cheese, Steak & Cheese, Chicken & Vegetables and Potato Top

We spent many months developing this range so that it still tastes like a pie should- full of flavour, delicious fillings and flaky pastry. So how did we do it?

  • We use lean beef and chicken an important source of protein and iron
  • Use healthy fats essential for energy but less unhealthy saturated fats.
  • Reduced the sodium and sugar
  • Reduced the kj per 100 gm helping balance overall energy intake but still provide energy for active growing tweens and teens.
  • Upped the amount of vegetables, legumes, fruit and soy to increase dietary fibre. Each pie contains at least 10% vegetables and fruit to help support 5+ a day fruit and vegetables.
  • We were a bit sneaky and pureed the vegetables to hide them so that kids are eating healthy without knowing it.
