Inspired by their famous love for the iconic Aussie meat pie Australia’s largest online tradie marketplace hipages and Sydney’s iconic Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, have launched the Tradie Pie a first-of-its-kind pie designed to deliver on the five most important factors to tradies when it comes to their meals: speed (49%), taste (44%), ease (36%), freshness (35%), and health (30%). And not just for tradies, these bloody delicious pies hook into our Aussie psyche, with meat pies and sport being linked back more than '50s years.

The Tradie Pie features a delicious blend of high-quality ingredients with 100% locally sourced, premium, Australian chunky lean beef, vegetables including carrots, peas, mushrooms and onions, all bathed in a delicious savoury peppercorn gravy. After months of development, Harry's Café de Wheels team of specialists created the perfect recipe, combining all of the flavours of a classic pub steak in a convenient, yet healthy pie form.

The Tradie Pie is also one of the first ever mass-produced pies in Australia to feature a tasty wholemeal pastry and is the first in Harry’s Café de Wheels’ 80+-year history to do so. It offers almost half your daily intake of fibre to support gut health and keeps you feeling fuller for longer throughout the day.

The Tradie Pie brought to you by hipages and Harry’s Café de Wheels is available from tomorrow at all Harry’s stores across New South Wales.
