Underwood takes Sausage of the Year title
Underwood Meat Company has secured the Sausage of the Year title with its pork and chorizo sausage at the Bpex Foodservice awards.
More than 230 sausages were entered into the competition, which saw flavours in a range of categories, from traditional to innovative and healthy eating.
The winner was entered into the Speciality Pork Sausage category, and group international accounts manager for Underwood Emmanuel Crusiaux said the overall champion title was a “tremendous” achievement.
“Our secret to producing a winning sausage is mixing quality-assured pork with ingredients that are on trend; we’re always looking to adapt our offerings to fit in with popular cuisines, tastes and flavours and our pork and chorizo sausage does just that,” said Crusiaux.
“We’ll certainly be developing new varieties using interesting ingredients after winning the award – I cannot wait to let the team know and celebrate our success,” he added.
The competition was entered by butchers, catering suppliers, manufacturers and chefs, who used quality-assured ingredients.
Bpex’s foodservice trade manager Tony Goodger said the winner did “incredibly well” and that the level of entries was overwhelming this year.
He said: “The competition is a great way to kick-start the celebrations for this year’s British Sausage Week (4-10 November) and highlight the incredible variety of quality-assured sausages available on menus in pubs, restaurants, cafés and schools.
“From innovative spicy varieties and fruit-filled specialities to traditional Cumberland and Lincolnshire sausages, we really have been delighted by the quality and range of sausages on offer.”
