Northern retailer Booths has launched a limited-edition Lancashire Sausage to celebrate Lancashire Day on 27 November.

The sausage, made from local pork, black pudding and beer, was designed to bring together flavours from around the county.

"We thought it was time for Lancashire to take on the sausage world giants such as Cumberland and Lincolnshire," said fresh meat buyer Nigel Cokell.

The sausages, which will be sold in both 400g packs for £2 and loose from the fresh meat counter at £5 per kg, will be available in-store from 19 November. The limited-edition product, which will be sold in most Booths, will be available until 29 November.

Meanwhile Yorkshire Outdoor has secured a listing for its sausages and bacon in Asda. The company boasts it has strong traceability as lines are made in a plant 20 miles from where the pigs are reared.
