Butchers urged to register for fair

With competitions, speakers and latest innovations on display, butchers are being urged to register for free entry to this Autumn’s Butchers and Bakers Fair.

Taking place at the Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire, and featuring the irrepressible television legend Keith Chegwin as guest presenter, the fair will offer a mix of entertainment, challenge and networking for butchers across the UK.

Entries to the National Pie Competition are still open, and butchers will be facing off against bakers in a bid to claim the prizes during the fair, which takes place at the Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire, on 12 October.

The pie contest features four categories, including Pork Pie, Savoury Pie, Steak and Kidney Pie and Pasties, giving opportunities to compete across a broad spectrum. Previous years have seen the butchery sector dominate against their rival bakers, but this year could see that change.

Other attractions include the UK’s number one sausage competition, Champion of Champions, which sees the best sausages from across the country judged to discover the ultimate sausage maker. Ed Bedington editor of Meat Trades Journal, which organises the events, said: “Champion of Champions is a long running prestigious competition which for many butchers is the ultimate accolade. Being declared the UK’s best sausage maker is a prize worth winning, and even if you’re not in the competition, the wider fair activities gives you the chance to mix and mingle with some of the country’s top sausage producers.”

Alongside the competitions. a wide range of exhibitors and companies will be offering their latest products, innovations and technologies to help butchers and bakers in their trade. There will also be a range of presentations and speakers, designed to inspire butchers and help them develop their businesses further.
