Becomes first U.S. c-store chain to offer the product

YORK, Pa. — Rutter’s has rolled out the Four’N Twenty Beef Traveller meat pie, a common grab-and-go product in Australia, in its convenience stores.

The meat pie is a flaky golden pastry filled with gravy and 100% Australian beef. Each pie has 16 grams of protein and is made with ingredients including wheat flour, beef, mutton, margarine, soy protein, carrots, vegetable protein, rice flour and spice extracts.

Rutter’s is the first U.S. c-store chain to carry this product, the company said.

Four’N Twenty is a producer of meat pies and sausage rolls. Besides its flagship Beef Traveller, its meat pie varieties are Chicken and Vegetable; Beef and Cheese; Super Chunky Steak and Chicken; Super Chunky Lamb and Vegetable; and Classic Pastie, a blend of fresh vegetables, beef and herbs. Four’N Twenty is a division of Bairnsdale, Australia-based Patties Foods, a manufacturer of meat pies, baked goods, frozen fruits and premade desserts.
