We believe we are the first UK sausage ever to be on sale in Japan, and also that we are the only European Meat Company approved for import of meat products into Japan. This is a considerable achievement. The radiation levels in local Japanese meat post the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster has provided a clear opportunity for those parts of the UK clear of radiation still present after Chernobyl. Our pork is West Country sourced and routine testing has shown it be free of Caesium 137.
As part of our recent machinery upgrade, we can now offer a full range of well presented chubs of speciality sausage meats, stuffings and puddings in time for the Christmas seasonal trade. Shown is our 400g chub in Shelf Ready Packaging.
