School Lunch Changes Offer Boost for UK Sausages19 June 2014
UK - New Government rules mean sausages can now be served more often in both primary and secondary schools.
This move is good news for the pig industry says BPEX Foodservice Manager, Tony Goodger, who was involved in the consultation process.
The old rules only allowed sausages to be served once in two weeks but they can be on the menu once a week in primary schools and twice in secondaries.
Mr Goodger said: “I gave evidence as part of the consultation and have conversations with those behind the new rules to put the industry’s position.
“There has also been another change in that the rules now define exactly what constitutes meat and poultry which will also be to our benefit.”
Ministers made the announcement for food in state schools, which will apply from January 2015.
