We are running a competition all summer, where you send us a picture of how you are using products that you ordered from*, and we’ll select a winner for June, July and August 2023.

The products can be anything; a marinade in a counter display, you or your staff wearing a chainmail glove, putting pies in the oven with our foils or hanging some nice fresh sausages made with our casings, hooks, sausage mixes, etc!

Each month’s winner will win a selection of goodies that looks a little like this:

  • 6" Boning Knife Curved Narrow American Handle

  • Bamboo Teppo Gushi Skewer 150MM 6" 250 Per Pack
  • Mississippi BBQ Sauce Sweet Apple 510G - 6/CASE

We won’t send you raw sausages of course, but we’ll certainly send you some mixes so you can make your own!

How to send your pics:

You can send your images to us via our Facebook, our Instagram or send an email to She loves seeing what you’re all up to!

Terms & Conditions:

There will be one winner for June, one for July & one for August. The winner will be picked on the last day of each month and announced on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Possible DPD Delivery Delays – Kings Coronation

The King’s Coronation - Impact on deliveries in the London area from Thursday 4th May:

The King’s Coronation takes place at Westminster Abbey on the morning of Saturday 6th May.

DPD, which deliver orders for some of our customers, have notified us that road closures in Westminster will start from Thursday 4th May and remain in place until Sunday 7th May.

We are doing everything we can to minimise the impact of this event on your deliveries. However, these road closures will mean DPD are unable to access certain roads and be unable to make some deliveries in the SW1 area.

On Sunday 7th May, the celebrations move to Windsor, which will impact the area in the SL4 postcode area and we expect the roads in Windsor to be extremely congested.

In addition, there are numerous street parties planned across the weekend which will see many residential roads closed which will restrict the movement of DPD delivery vehicles. Any orders that cannot be delivered will be re-attempted on Tuesday 9th May, following the Bank Holiday.

As always, DPD will keep you informed of your delivery status via MyDPD portal – as long as you have submitted your details for this.
