Catering suppliers Fairfax Meadow, Frank Parker Butchers and Broad Oak Farm Sausage Company have taken gold at the British Sausage Week awards.
The three butchers were recognised for bangers in the speciality premium, traditional and traditional premium categories respectively.
Fairfax Meadow won for its Sicilian fennel traditional style sausage, while Frank Park Butchers handmade thin breakfast sausage was recognised, as was Broad Oak Farm Sausage Company's Cumberland sausage.
Each successful supplier received their trophy from Michel Roux Jr, who presented the awards.
Keith Fisher, butchery development manager for AHDB Pork and head judge, said: "With sausage pride running high, the competition to mark the 18th annual British Sausage Week was particularly fierce. Judges looked at the texture, appearance and cooking and eating quality of all entries, with only the very best pork sausages making it onto the 2015 roll of honour.
"Sausages remain a mainstay on menus, with quality, consistency and originality all key ingredients. Record levels of entry and innovation this year prove the sausage market is in no danger of standing still."
