The Cumberland sausage has recently been awarded protected status meaning that only sausages made in Cumbria can now carry the name. The move should be a major boost to Cumbria’s butchers. In order to display the PGI mark (Protected Geographical Indication status) the sausage must be produced, processed and prepared in Cumbria and have a meat content of at least 80%. The actual recipe does vary from butcher to butcher but the sausage also needs to include seasoning and be sold in a long coil.
