The 2017 Fish & Chip Shop of the Year Sponsor:


McWhinney’s Sausages is a traditional family business spanning six generations. Today, Kevin McWhinney takes pride in producing quality Irish pork sausages with the same care and tradition first adopted by his great great grandfather way back in 1898. For those six generations, the recipes for McWhinney’s fine pork sausages have been a closely guarded family secret.

Thanks to his sophisticated plant, he can produce millions of sausages every month without compromising on his 19th century family heritage and today, McWhinney’s Sausages are enjoyed not just in the UK and Ireland but throughout the world in countries such as France, Canada, Turkey and Spain.
