East Devon’s K & M Butchers Ltd walked away with a hotly contested ‘Champion’ title after putting their best pork products forward to be judged by a team of leading industry experts.
The BPEX Regional Roadshow Awards, which took place at Sandy Park in Exeter, drew 190 entries from 31 butchers across the region.
Husband and wife team Kevin and Mary Tratt, from Ottery St Mary, triumphed in the speciality pork sausage category and were awarded the champion title for their pork, caramelised onion and cranberry sausage, launched just two months ago.
Kevin said: “I’m over the moon. Due to a hectic three years of developing new products we’ve been unable to enter, but this year we returned to the roadshows after experimenting with new flavours and ingredients. To get the award is amazing and something my wife, son-in-law and I are extremely proud of.”
