European protected status for Newmarket sausages

European protected status for Newmarket sausages

Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status has been granted to Newmarket sausages, meaning only businesses within a certain radius of the area can call their produce by that name.

Powters Sausages together with Eric Tenant Butchers and Musk’s Sausages applied for the PGI and managing director, Grant Powter said: “I am delighted this regional food product has now gained the protection it deserves by virtue of the reputation and quality which have been traditionally attributed to the making of sausages in Newmarket for over 160 years.”

The Newmarket sausage is now afforded local status alongside other products such as the Cornish Pasty, Parma Ham and Melton Mowbray Pork Pies.
