UK Sausage Week 2019 on the hunt for Best Scottish Banger and others
The hunt for the best Scottish banger, and others right across the UK, is on to celebrate this year’s UK Sausage Week, taking place from the 28th October to 3rd of November.
With the hopes of championing one of the UK’s culinary delights, the UK Sausage Week Awards will crown butchers and retailers across the whole of the UK going the extra mile to deliver the perfect sausage to their consumers.
Quality Meat Scotland’s Scotch Butcher Club and the Scottish Craft Butchers are sponsoring the Scottish Independent Butcher category looking for the best Scottish butchers who guarantee taste, quality and flavour in every sausage they sell.
Graeme Sharp, Scotch Butchers Club manager at Quality Meat Scotland said: “The humble sausage is one of our great foodie staples and is a product many of us turn to when we are in need of some comfort food. Sausages are delicious and versatile and ought to be celebrated, so we are thrilled to be supporting this year’s UK Sausage Week Awards, along with the Scottish Craft Butchers.
“When it comes to sausages, using the best Specially Selected Pork, Scotch Beef PGI and Scotch Lamb PGI is one of the best ways to guarantee a high-quality product, so we always encourage consumers to look for the blue logos when shopping for their sausages.”
Gordon King, chief executive of Scottish Craft Butchers said: “Scottish Craft Butchers have a fantastic reputation for making the highest quality products. This is especially true when making sausages.
“Butchers use their knowledge, experience and skill to manufacture sausages to meet the growing expectations of their customers, with many delicious varieties available.
“With this in mind, we are delighted that along with the Scotch Butchers Club, we are sponsoring the Scottish Independent Butcher category at the UK Sausage Week Awards where our Independent butchers will have the opportunity to present their best sausages for evaluation against the rest of the country.
“It is an exciting challenge and one which we are sure the Scottish Craft Butchers will relish,” he added.
The award winners will be announced on the 28th November at an awards ceremony in London where TV celebrity chef Lesley Waters will be in attendance as UK Sausage Week’s 2019 ambassador.
UK Sausage Week, supported by Meat Management encourages industry bodies to host sausage events, special promotions, new product launches, competitions and tastings to showcase one of the nation’s culinary delights.
