In 2007, Sainsbury's launched a Square Pie range across 71 of its stores. As with those produced for Square Pies' outlets, the pies in this "Take Me Home and Bake Me" range are handmade, using only natural ingredients,cite news|url=http://www.meatinfo.co.uk/articles/30079/Sainsbury%E2%80%99s-strike-new-deal-with-pie-manufacturer.aspx?categoryid=9031|title=Sainsbury’s strike new deal with pie manufacturer|date=2007-04-13|work=MeatInfo.co.uk|publisher=William Reed Business Media|accessdate=2008-07-20] with "clean and simple" packaging designed to reflect Square Pie's image as an "honest British food brand" – Square Pie outlets similarly use brown-board boxes as food containers.cite news|url=http://www.brandrepublic.com/news/666442/pearlfisher-creates-supermarket-identity-square-pie/|title=Pearlfisher creates supermarket identity for Square Pie|last=Sandison|first=Nikki|date=2007-06-25|work=Brand Republic|publisher=Haymarket Media|accessdate=2008-07-20]
