UK Sausage Week

It’s back with a banger!!! Once again, butchers, manufacturers, retailers and trade associations in the UK will be promoting 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 29th October – 4th November.

UK Sausage Week 2018 is set to be another fantastic opportunity for the industry to get behind one of the nation’s culinary delights, supported by Meat Management magazine. Not only does Meat Management organise the UK Sausage Week competition in October, but 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: “We are delighted to be organising and hosting UK Sausage Week again this year. It was a brilliant success last year. We kick the week off in the autumn with a celebration lunch at Plaisterers’ Hall, London on 29th October to announce the competition winners, including the UK Supreme Sausage Champion.”

The awards lunch on 29th October marks the beginning of UK Sausage Week, so make sure you book tickets and enter the competition now. You have to be in it to win it!
