Sausage Competition Set To Sizzle

Mystery shoppers will be out in force this week collecting entries for the 2010 Great New Zealand Sausage Competition

Record entries have set the scene for a tough competition as more than 400 sausages will battle it out for supremacy.

The competition, organised by Retail Meat New Zealand and sponsored by Devro, Kerry Ingredients and Alto Packaging, will be judged at the Auckland Seafood School from November 17 - 19.

Retail Meat New Zealand Manager, Fiona Greig, says the competition is an industry highlight.

"It's been running since 1994 and has grown from strength to strength. Butchers spend a long time perfecting their sausage recipe, and to win the coveted Supreme Award holds a lot of kudos in the industry," says Greig.

Butchers have entered their sausages into 12 categories ranging from Traditional to Gourmet.

All are aiming for the number one gold medal in their category to put them forward to the Supreme Award judging.

The 12 entries which make it to the Supreme Award will also be eligible for the inaugrual People's Choice Award.

The public are invited to come judge this new category from 1pm on 19 November at the Auckland Fish Market in Freemans Bay.
