Deadline day for Champion of Champions fast approaching

Mark Friday 4 September in your diary and get your entries in to the nation’s top sausage competition. 

Champion of Champions is open to any producer who has won the overall title at a recognised sausage competition between 1 July 2014 and 30 June 2015 and the event will take the best sausages in the land to decide who really is the Champion of Champions

Last year’s overall winner, Craig Finch from Craig Finch Butchers in Birmingham, said taking the top prize was a great boost to his business. His Pork & Leek sausages helped him to a second Champion of Champions victory in 2014.

He said: “It is hard work, but it’s worth it when you win the trophy. Winning competitions like this really raises the profile of your business.”

Rod Addy, editor of Meat Trades Journal, said: “For more than 30 years, Champion of Champions has been rewarding the best sausages and sausage-makers in the land. The top UK butchers will compete to claim the top award in this contest. It’s more than just a competition – it’s the chance to be recognised as the top sausage-maker and earn some exposure for your business.”

Deadline for entries to the competition is Friday 4 September, with the event taking place on Monday 12 October at St Barts Brewery in London. Follow the competition on Twitter on #sausagechampion.
