UK Sausage Week Launched – get your butcher to enter!

UK Sausage Week

The official UK Sausage Week website recently went live where Butchers and manufacturers can enter their sausages for the chance to win a UK Sausage Week award.

Entry is free and each company may enter a maximum of four different sausages (two sausages into each of the two categories: Traditional and Innovative.)

The traditional category can include regional specialities such as Cumberland, Lincolnshire and Newmarket. Meanwhile, for the innovative category, the judges are looking for creative and inspirational products using a diverse range of ingredients.

All products will be put to the test by a panel of industry experts, headed-up by Institute of Meat CEO Keith Fisher, in September. The winners, including the Supreme UK Champion, will be unveiled by celebrity ambassador Eric Knowles at the UK Sausage Week Celebration lunch at Plaisterers’ Hall, London.
