News: Underwoods receive Sausage of the Year award


Underwood Meat Company in Rotherham has picked up the top award at the BPEX Foodservice Sausage of the Year competition for its tasty bangers.

Underwood Meat Company operates from two sites – in Rotherham, and Godalming in Surrey – and employs 150 people. From these premises, the company provides a wide variety of raw meat products to a range of blue-chip groups and independent catering customers throughout the UK.

From more than 230 sausage entries, its Pork and Chorizo Sausage was one of just fifteen selected by leading industry judges to battle it out in the competition's grand finale, which recently took place at London's prestigious Butchers' Hall.

The winning sausage, which was entered into the Speciality Pork Sausage category, scored highly on taste, texture and appearance and earned Underwood Meat Company the hotly contested "Overall Champion" title.

Emmanuel Crusiaux, international accounts manager at Underwood Meat Company, said: "To win first prize in the Speciality Pork Sausage category with our Pork and Chorizo Sausage is a fantastic achievement, but to scoop the "Overall Champion" title is tremendous!"

The Rawmarsh Road firm recently acquired and invested in a dedicated factory unit producing high quality chilled and frozen sausage and burgers for the catering, food service, retail and wholesale markets.

John Heeley, managing director at Underwood Meat Company (pictured above, left), said: "We are absolutely delighted the business has been awarded overall winner of the Food Service Sausage of the Year award for 2013 for the Pork & Chorizo sausage. This is one of the latest editions to the already award winning Prime Pork sausage range and supports the rationale for our recent investment in our dedicated sausage production facility in Chesterfield."
