An historic butcher's shop is celebrating after being crowned the UK's top own brand sausage maker.
Powters scooped the Best Manufacturer/Own Brand Sausage award for its celebrated Newmarket sausages, and a highly commended accolade in the Innovative category for its spicy Chilli Pig sausages at the UK Sausage Week Awards.
"We are honoured to be awarded this fantastic award in this year's UK Sausage Week's 2019 competition," said sales director Tristan Powter.

"It's a large, well-respected industry competition, so are delighted to scoop this prize for our Newmarket Pig sausages. It's also fantastic to receive recognition for Newmarket Pig and Chilli Pig, showing the two ends of the spectrum from our traditional and most popular sausage to our most innovative."
Powters began making sausages in 1881 from its family-run traditional butchery and delicatessen in Newmarket.
It also produces a range of sausages for retail under the Powters brand which are sold in Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Morrison's and Co-op stores in the East Anglia and East Midlands region.
