The organisers of UK Sausage Week are making a final call to all butchers, manufacturers and supermarkets to enter their products into its sausages competition.

With so many meat businesses wanting to put their products forward, YPL Exhibitions & Events has made the decision to extend the deadline to this Friday – 15th September.

Each company can nominate a maximum of two types of Traditional sausage and two types of Innovative sausage – and with only two days until the final deadline approaches there is no time like the present to do so!

Event organiser, Emma Cash, commented: “With so many meat businesses wanting to enter their products and requiring a bit of extra time to choose their favourites, we’ve had to extend the deadline.

“Winning sausages could mean a massive boost to business and with time running out, companies should hurry to ensure their bangers don’t miss out on the chance of scooping a prize.”

All products must be delivered to the Regional Food Academy at Harper Adams University on Tuesday 19th September.
