SFMTA Trade Fair!

SFMTA Trade Fair!

The Scottish Federation of Meat Traders Association (SFMTA) has announced the Scottish Meat Trades Fair will be held on Sunday, 14th May in Perth in a one-day event, and we’ll be heading along to see all the sights and meet up with our suppliers!

Organised by SFMTA on behalf of Scotland’s independent butchers, the fair will include the Scottish Master Competition for Haggis and Pork Sausage, the Meat Skills Competition and more! SFMTA members services officer Bruce McCall said: “This is the first Trade Fair since May 2007. Since then, we have already received positive enquiries from new exhibitors for this year and space is expected to be at a premium.”

With companies like Dalziel Ltd, Failte Foods, Kelly Bronze Ltd and more coming to the show, we’ll be picking up on new ideas, tricks and techniques to ensure that your favourite butcher remains the best in Scotland!

As mentioned above, there will be competitions for awards in the Haggis and Pork Link catergories, which we will of course be entering and looking to win! With these, there will also be a sausage linking competition, with the winner being the one who can link as many sausages as fast as they can in a set time. The current record is 61 in a minute, which our butchers think should be pretty easy to beat. Let’s do it!

Our own Craig Lowrie will also be presented with his Level 3 certificate from the Scottish Meat Trainers! Congrats!
UPDATE: We came third in the Devro World Sausage Linking Championships! Watch videos on our Facebook page of the sausage linking competition and more!
