Sausage awards – 2015

Peter Kendrick from Countdown with the Supreme Award trophy

Congratulations to all the winners in the 2015 Great NZ Sausage competition. Support your local butchers!

The Supreme winner was Countdown for their Alpine Pork sausage. Countdown also won a Gold Award for their Pork Flavoured sausage.

Other butchers of note, and regular award winners were Peter Timbs Meats in Christchurch. They took home two Golds, 2 Silvers and 3 Bronze. Hellers took home 2 Golds and 4 Silvers, and Harris Meats in Cheviot won 1 Gold, 2 Silvers, and 1 Bronze.
