The Primrose Herd in Busveal, near Redruth, took home three gold awards at the national BPEX Foodservice Pork Sausage of the Year competition.

More than 230 sausages were entered across five categories and farm owners Bill and Sally Lugg won prizes for their Cumberland, chorizo and chipolata sausages.

Tony Goodger, BPEX Foodservice trade manager, said: “These accolades are highly sought-after and Primrose Herd has done exceptionally well to walk away with three prestigious Gold Awards.

“Judging the competition was particularly challenging because of the high standard of entries; it is clear there has been much innovation in the sector, with some really unusual flavour combinations and interesting new ideas coming through.”
