UK Sausage Week is shaping up

It’s full speed ahead for UK Sausage Week with a new website now live, and a venue booked for the celebration lunch.

UK Sausage Week will run from Monday October 30 until Sunday November 5. The initiative has been designed by ‘Meat Management’ magazine to promote the UK’s sausages in a bid to boost trade this autumn.

‘Meat Management’ publisher Graham Yandell said: “We are looking at some interesting ideas to raise the profile of sausages over the seven day period. Our last day is November 5 [Guy Fawkes Night] and. of course, bangers and Bonfire Night is a perfect fit.”

The week opens with a celebration lunch on October 30 at Plaisterers’ Hall, in London, This event, organised by YPL Exhibitions & Events, will highlight many of the UK’s best sausages with awards for best independent butchers, the best supermarket/multiple retailer of sausages and the best own-brand sausage manufacturer.

Interested sausage-makers can now enter their products for consideration via the form on the event’s new website at www.uksausageweek.com. The products will be put to the test by a team of judges led by Keith Fisher, ceo of The Institute of Meat.

Further plans for UK Sausage Week will to be unveiled both on meatmanagement.com and via uksausageweek.com as they progress.

In addition to the website, sausage enthusiasts can follow the progress of the campaign on Twitter @UKSausageWeek and via the Facebook page and LinkedIn page.
