OUR CHIEF JUDGE

Keith Fisher

Keith Fisher

CEO of the Institute of Meat

“Opening the Sausage Week competition up to feature all meat sausages rather than only pork was an excellent move. Throughout the judging we tasted everything from turkey through to venison and some of the flavour combinations used were truly inspired. The care and attention that’s been put into the products submitted was clear.

“Sausage Week remains as important as ever since Meat Management took over the initiative and the quality of the sausages coming through genuinely increases year on year.”

UKSW 2020 Cancellation

The UK Sausage Week promotion for 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19.

The decision was reluctantly taken as prospects for the UK wide sausage competition and its direct effect on the UKSW celebration lunch, plus positive engagement with industry and consumers, became more and more uncertain.

We are taking a gap year in 2020 and we hope that UK Sausage Week will return in 2021.

We wish all our partners, sponsors and guests good health and please - stay safe.
