Cumberland sausage given EU protection

Filed under Uncategorized

The Cumberland sausage has followed in the footsteps of the Cornish pasty to be given EU protection and become Britain’s 44th protected food.  It is the first of Britain’s sausages to be given what is called PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status which means that the sausages must be produced to an agreed method. Sausages displaying the PGI mark will have been produced, processed and prepared in Cumbria and contain at least 80% meat and be at least three-quarters of an inch thick. Cumberland sausage was first documented in 1911 but is thought to have a 500-year heritage that dates back to the 16th Century and the influx of German miners to the area.
