Butchers Hall to host UK Sausage Week awards lunch

Organisers have confirmed that the annual UK Sausage Week (UKSW) awards lunch will take place at the prestigious Butchers Hall venue in London on Monday 28th October 2024, to kick off this year’s UK Sausage Week celebrations (28th October – 3rd November).  

In addition, the dates for the UKSW national product competition to find this year’s sausage champions will be announced shortly, with full details of how to enter products for evaluation and judging.

Joanna Thomson, editor of Meat Management magazine, who organise UKSW, commented: “We all know how important the sausage market is to the UK meat trade and now, more than ever, getting involved could not be more important. It’s a great opportunity to get customers thinking about and buying more sausages!”

The initiative has already attracted sponsor partners including, Reiser UK, Handtmann, Scobie & Junor Group and the Dalesman Group, with other companies poised to come on board shortly. Award winning catering butchers Owen Taylor & Sons Ltd are sponsoring the main course lunch at Butchers Hall.  

Winners of the UKSW Competition categories often report significant increases in sausage sales and companies and retailers who innovate and get involved can maximise on the profile UKSW creates. The week normally attracts national and local media interest and coverage, and organisers will be spreading the word to make sure all the key people are aware.

This year’s categories are as follows:

  • Best Pork Sausage
  • Best Beef Sausage
  • Best Lincolnshire Sausage
  • Best Cumberland Sausage
  • Best Chipolata Sausage
  • Best Free From Sausage
  • Best Gluten Free / Free From Sausage
  • Best Chicken Sausage
  • Best Speciality Sausage
  • UK Sausage Week – Supreme UK Champion
