SCOTTISH sausage shoppers are being encouraged to ‘seek out the sporran’ on shelves following the launch of a new line of branded bangers from The Kilted Pork Company, part of Browns Food Group.

Supermarkets throughout the country have been filling up with this new sausage range from Scotland’s biggest pork supplier which aims to showcase Scottish pork while tantalising tastebuds with some new and different flavour combinations.

The packs feature a prominent tartan sporran logo and the sausages are made from 100% Specially Selected Pork – meat that was born, reared and processed in Scotland. The quality assurance labelling means the meat is produced and independently assessed to the highest standards of welfare.

There are five products in the range: for those who like to keep things simple there’s Specially Selected Pork on its own and, for those who want to ring the changes, four delicious flavoured varieties of Specially Selected Pork with cracked black pepper, premium haggis, Scotch bonnet chilli and Arran mustard and honey are available.

Browns Food Group began with a small butcher’s shop in Biggar in South Lanarkshire in 1885, curing all their own bacon and distributing products by horse and cart throughout Lanarkshire and surrounding areas.

The company, still family owned, now operates from seven manufacturing sites, producing and supplying an extensive range in quality cooked meats, convenience foods and delicatessen items. A spokesman said: “While the tartan sporran logo on Kilted Pork Sausages is a bit of fun, our main message to shoppers is to look out for Specially Selected Pork logos whenever you buy pork products. That way you can be sure you are supporting both Scottish farmers and animal welfare.”

With an RRP of £3.30 for a pack of six, Kilted Pork Company sausages are available in store now at most key retailers in Scotland including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Co-op and Asda.
