‘Sausage pride running high’

Butchery development manager for Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board Pork, and head judge, Keith Fisher said: “With sausage pride running high, the competition to mark the 18th​ annual British Sausage Week was particularly fierce.

“Sausages remain a mainstay on pub menus – there are some 84 million servings annually – with quality, consistency and originality all key ingredients. Record levels of entry and innovation this year prove the sausage market is in no danger of standing still.

“It remains imaginative and forward-thinking, delivering a fantastic array of quality pork sausages to satisfy the country’s entire legion of sausage fans.”
