An Italian Casalinga Pork sausage from Ashby`s Butchery in Christchurch has beaten 470 sausages to be named the best sausage in New Zealand.

The public have agreed with the experts and also crowned the Italian Casalinga Pork sausages the People’s Choice Award winner.

After two days of judging, it came down to the top 14 sausages vying for the ultimate prize in the Devro New Zealand Sausage Competition, also sponsored by Kerry Ingredients.

Ashby’s Butchery Owner, Corey Winder says he is overwhelmed to achieve both awards: “I was really happy to be announced as the People’s Choice Award winner, but to then be announced as the overall Supreme Winner as well was really something, it’s going to be huge for our business,” says Corey.
