Blog: Sausages are now posh nosh

Catherine Sleep | 14 September 2005

A new report finds that the great British banger is back in fashion but it’s gone all posh. Volumes have risen by 17% in the last five years, but market value has grown by an even more impressive 23%; clearly we’re not only eating more sausages, but we’re eating better ones.

What the authors are of course far too polite so say is that we’re eating more posh sausages because we know far too much about what’s in the cheap ones. Skin, rind, gristle, anyone? No?

The report, by Mintel, is available on just-food. Just follow the link below.
