Last chance to enter UK Sausage Week competition – today
With another high level of entries this year, YPL Exhibitions & Events has decided to extend the deadline for nominating and entering sausages into the 2019 UK Sausage Week competition until Thursday 29th August.
The Awards presentations will take place at a lunch ceremony at the newly reopened Butchers’ Hall to kick start the annual week, which this year runs from Monday 28th October through to 3rd November.
The original deadline for nominations was 27th August but to help those retailers busy over the coming Bank Holiday it has been extended to 29th August.
There are 14 categories available in the UK Sausage Week competition including 8 regional winners in England and, following expanded coverage in 2017, categories for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland too.
In addition the competition includes a supermarket category, and own label manufacturers category, as well as the coveted overall Supreme UK Sausage Champion.
Pam Brook, editor of Meat Management commented: “As usual entries are substantial and the stage is set for a great competition. The organisers have added a couple of day to allow for the coming Bank Holiday when we know butchers, in particular, are very busy. So, there’s still time to get your best sellers in front of the judges for a good grilling!”
“Winners will see a major boost to trade, ” says Emma Cash, “to enter is easy and free and as always you have to be in it to win it. The message is have a go. If you have great sausages make sure you nominate now.”
