A TEAM of leading industry experts have awarded Cam Family Butchers a place at the BPEX Foodservice Pork Sausage of the Year grand finale – and a chance of winning the "Overall Champion" title for 2013.
After an intense day of sausage sampling, the butchers on Philmore Road in Cam walked away with seven gold awards and one silver for its best bangers.
Its traditional pork sausage and west country pork sausage scored highly on taste, texture and appearance and earned them gold awards at the competition, with the former crowned the top tasting of the day.
The family-run shop is now one of the 15 businesses from across the country who will face each other at the grand final taking place at Butchers' Hall in London on Friday, October 25.
A BPEX spokesman said the categories for this year’s competition were chosen to reflect the exciting sausage marketplace and celebrate the range of quality assured varieties available on menus.
The five categories are Traditional Pork Sausage, Speciality Pork Sausage, Best Export Sausage, Best Innovative Pork Sausage and Best Healthy Eating Sausage.
BPEX’s foodservice trade manager, Tony Goodger, said: “From taste and flavour to texture and appearance, the level of entries has been staggering this year and the judges were impressed by the quality and innovation on display.
“These awards are highly sought after so it is a great achievement for Cam Family Butchers to be selected to go through to the final – we wish them luck.”
BPEX represents pig levy payers in England and works to improve the competitiveness and efficiency of the English pig industry.
