J W Mettrick & Son brought home the Diamond award for
Best Pork Sausage 2017 at the Q Guild Smithfield Awards 2017.
After entering a number of products which went through rigorous judging back in October they were delighted to win gold awards for their Pork Sausage, Black eyed smoked bacon, Smokey brisket burger, Piri Piri pork sausage & the legendary large pork pie!
They went on to the finals at Ironmongers Hall in London hoping they were in with a chance to bring home an elite ‘Diamond Award’.
Steven Mettrick (Managing director) and Caroline Houghton (Office manager) had the honour of attending an excellent day hosted by the Q Guild & Chief Guest Tom Parker Bowles presenting Steven with the award .
‘After recently re-joining the q guild it is important for us to benchmark our products against other butchers to help us maintain our high standards and develop new innovative products. Butchers from all across the country compete and it was an absolute honour to be coming home with a trophy’ said John Mettrick
Our pork sausage is a family favourite and has been our best seller for decades. A traditional recipe made with free-range Packington pork, processed on site through our co located abattoir, and sold through our retail outlets.
We couldn’t have done it without Gareth Zielinski who produced the award winning sausages for the competition (on his day off)!
