UK Sausage Week
UK Sausage Week, which this year runs from 28th October – 3rd November, is supported by Meat Management magazine and the now well-established national competition for UKSW takes place in September. Meat Management’s editor, Pam Brook said: “The competition deadline of 27th August is not far away and we challenge all butchers, manufacturers and supermarkets to get their bangers grilled by our judges! Entry is free and simple so what have they go to lose? As the fantastic Kenny Everett once said: ‘It’s all in the best possible taste!”
During UK Sausage Week butchers, manufacturers, retailers and trade associations in the UK will, once again, be championing and raising the profile of the great British sausage. This will include hosting their own sausage events, special promotions, new product launches, competitions and tastings to celebrate UK Sausage Week.
Not only does Meat Management organise the UK Sausage Week competition in September as well as a number of marketing initiatives, but it will also put together and publicise a selection of sizzling sausage recipes which will be available for businesses to use and distribute to their customers. Companies throughout the UK are also provided with marketing and POS material, including an official UK Sausage Week poster in print or to download and display, as well as a logo to print and use for your sausage products labels and packaging.
UK Sausage Week organiser, Emma Cash of YPL Exhibitions & Events, said: “The week gets off to a ‘banging’ start with our celebration lunch on 28th October where we announce the competition winners, including the UK Supreme Sausage Champion. We are also delighted that TV celebrity chef Lesley Waters is able to join us as our 2019 ambassador for UKSW”.
