Friday Sausage News - Ardennes Sausage Awarded Protected Geographic Status

OK, I am confused....saucisson d'Ardenne has been granted protected geographic indication (PGI) status.  Nothing wrong with that, in itself?

What confuses me is why, if a Belgian sausage can gain PGI, can't our very own Lincolnshire Sausage obtain the same status?  It stinks.

You can read the full story, courtesy of the Daily Telegraph, here:

Rate My Sausage is proud to promote great British products, and the sooner that the Lincolnshire Sausage is awarded PGI, the better, as this means that huge multi-national beasts such as Tossco won't be able to sell inferior imitations.

Please show your support for the Lincolnshire Sausage - you can make a start by visiting the website of the Lincolnshire Sausage Association:

Power To The People!
