UK Sausage Week – 30th October – 5th November

UK Sausage Week

30th October – 5th November

Why UK Sausage week?

In short UK Sausage Week is here to help boost trade this autumn.

It will take place from Monday 30th October through to Bonfire Night – Sunday 5th November. The event has been designed by Meat Management magazine to replace the usual autumn British Sausage Week which AHDB will not be running this year.

Graham Yandell, publisher of Meat Management magazine, said: “Many in our industry feel the trade should still be supported with a major sausage event and we at Meat Management are ideally placed to provide the infrastructure for promotion and events. Plans are underway for a celebratory lunch to take place at Plaisterers’ Hall on 30th October which will highlight many of Britain’s best sausages, recognising winners from all around the country and of course the overall Supreme UK Champion. Retail butchers, multiple retailers and manufacturers will be recognised and we now have the judging infrastructure in place which will feature a large team of experienced judges under the direction of chief judge and Liveryman Keith Fisher, the well-known CEO of the Institute of Meat.

“We are looking at some interesting ideas to raise the profile of sausages over the seven day period, with useful content designed to celebrate and promote the UK’s sausages appearing in Meat Management magazine and online. Our last day is Bonfire Night – and of course bangers and Bonfire Night is a perfect fit.”

Knowles said he was delighted to be involved with UK Sausage Week. He explained: “People often say to me: ‘I don’t know much about art but I know what I like!’ The same could be said about me and sausages. I wouldn’t claim to be a sausage expert but I certainly know a good one when I’m eating it.”
