The deadline to nominate your bangers into UK Sausage Week’s competition is just over a week away, so manufacturers and retailers should enter products online now to be in with a chance to win.
Businesses can still enter products for consideration for free via the form on the campaign’s website, but remember, the deadline is the 10th September 2018.
Each company may enter a maximum of two types of traditional sausage and two types of innovative sausage in which entry is free.
All meat sausages are eligible for entry – from pork and beef through to chicken and game.
Information will be provided to all entrants on the judging process which takes place at Harper Adams University and is overseen by Institute of Meat CEO Keith Fisher.

Get your tickets to the lunch
Organisers are reminding industry members to ensure they do not miss out on the UK Sausage Week campaign’s celebration lunch.
There is still time to order tickets, but availability is limited – so it is recommended that those interested in attending book theirs as soon as possible.
The lunch will take place at London’s Plaisterers’ Hall on 29th October and will act as the opening event of UK Sausage Week 2018 where the category winners of the campaign’s competition will be announced as well as the Supreme Sausage Champion.
The UK Sausage Week ambassador for 2018 is to be the celebrity chef, author, broadcaster and cookery school businesswoman Sophie Grigson. She will host the lunch and present the winners with their prizes.
UK Sausage Week organiser Emma Cash said: “Tickets for the lunch are selling fast so I advise that those still interested in coming who haven’t got theirs to act quickly. Sophie is set to be an excellent hot and I know we can look forward to a really enjoyable, sausagetastic occasion!”
