A YOUNG butcher pulled out all the stops to impress judges at the South-West regional roadshow and Butchers Pork Product Excellence Awards.
The Devon Pickly Pork Sausage entered by Philip Collins, 23, from Complete Meats in Axminster was hailed a success by the team of leading industry experts and earned him the title of champion in the young sausage maker category.
Shaun Vining, owner of Complete Meats, said: “We are so proud of Philip’s success – to develop an award-winning sausage is a great achievement and something he should be extremely proud of.
“We’re strong believers in passing the trade down to younger generations, so for one of our team to win is superb.
“Following its success we are planning to stock the sausage for our customers to enjoy – hopefully it’ll become a firm favourite.”
Complete Meats also won gold awards for its traditional pork sausages and pork pie.
