Mama Raty’s Finnish Meat Pies are the evolution of the traditional Finnish meat pies popular on the streets of Helsinki.

Mama Raty’s Food Co. was founded in 2015 to bring the flavours of Finland to the streets of Toronto. Having recently emigrated from Finland, a young Mama Raty spent the 1960s working in her mother’s restaurants in Thunder Bay, Ontario. From serving meat pies and pancakes to the hungry bush workers then to now introducing them to Torontonians some 50 years later, these Finnish staples have stood the test of time.
