Our High Peak Lamb Burger & Traditional Pork Sausage did it again!!
The great and the good of the meat industry came together this week to recognise and reward the winners of the Institute of Meat (IoM) and Worshipful Company of Butchers Awards.
Mettrick's has been announced as the North West winner of the British sausage week’s national banger competition, with its Manchester sausage entry.
We received the coveted "British Banger Award" from this year’s King of Sizzle and legendary stand-up star Al Murray after a fierce cook off final in Manchester.
The Manchester sausage is a traditional pork with nutmeg and mace. It was first mentioned in an 18th Century Recipe book and believed to have originated as a result of the early Nutmeg trade into Manchester.
Now in their eighth year, these awards are the Countryside Alliance’s annual celebration of rural produce and skills through small hard-working businesses.
Selected by a small judging panel, the champions for 2012 were decided across five categories with Mettrick's triumphing in the Butcher category.
The criteria for selected butchers included whether animal welfare was a priority, keeping traditional butchery skills alive and if they go the extra mile to support the local farming community.
And if you know Mettrick's, you'll know we stick to all these principles ongoing.
Mettricks were regional finalists in the legendary sausage competition with North West Champion Sausage; the pork with lemon marmalade & cracked black pepper.
