Four 'n Twenty Pie signThe iconic Four ‘n Twenty Pie was invented in Bendigo, Victoria by L.T. McClure who introduced them at the Royal Melbourne Agricultural Show. Owing to increased demand he opened a bakery in a pavilion of the showgrounds, later moving to bigger premises. Australians eat more meat pies per capita than anyone else – on average more than 12 meat pies per year. The Four ‘n Twenty pie factory is the largest in the world, baking 50,000 pies an hour.
