Are you appropriately stocked? Mince pies are one of the staples of the UK Christmas. According to Good Housekeeping, we eat around 800 million of them each year. That figure presumably doesn’t take into account home made mince pies and it seems we’re just as keen on home made as ready-made.
Mince pie sales are erratic but for the latest week, are slightly behind last year. However, it’s clear that the last couple of weeks before Christmas is the key time for maximising sales of these seasonal treats.
