A Derbyshire butcher is launching two new low fat sausages in the New Year after taking part in a project to help East Midlands food and drink manufacturers create healthier products.
J W Mettrick & Sons Ltd are developing two new sausages, one of which is less than 0.4% fat and the other less than 0.6% fat. The new products are set for a launch in the New Year, and director John Mettrick has high hopes they will be a hit with customers who are cutting down on their fat intake.
“I think this fits in with what people are looking for,” explains John Mettrick, director at J W Mettrick & Sons Ltd, which has shops in Hadfield and Glossop, runs an abattoir in Glossop, North Derbyshire, and trades online at www.mettricksbutchers.co.uk. “We had quite a few customers who were in slimming groups who were asking if we could develop products that would fit in with their diets.”
