The Pork Sausages from Boghall Butchers, have been judged the best in the South East of Scotland. In a competition run by the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders that attracted over 100 entries, their pork sausages were selected as the best in their region, but then after going head to head with the other four Regional Champions was pipped at the post by the East Scotland champion, Tom Courts Quality Foods.
Speaking after the final held on Sunday 12th May at the Scottish Meat Trade Fair in Perth, Ian Faulds, President, Scottish Federation of Meat Traders said:-.
“All Craft Butchers believe they have the tastes and flavours to entice their customers back but this recognition in a national competition is very special. It is a good time to be a butcher and a good time to drop into Boghall for their latest awarded winning pork sausages.”
Following on closely to Boghall Butchers success at last month’s British Pie Awards and the 2013 Craft Butcher Awards, Paul Boyle and his wife, Christine (photographed) have now picked up no fewer than thirteen major awards in the last fortnight for their pies and meat products.
