About Powters

Powters is one of Newmarket's oldest established family businesses, dating back to 1880 and now in its fifth generation.

We are famous for The Newmarket Sausage which has been made continuously in Newmarket by the our family since 1881. Originally the essential breakfast or convenient hot snack enjoyed by racegoers, it soon found fame outside the town and is now a firm favourite throughout east Anglia. We think of it as the Champagne of sausages!

Powters Newmarket Sausage (PGI)

The Newmarket Sausage, along with the Cumberland, is one of only two PGI (protected food name) sausages in the UK and is one of only about 65 food and drink products to share this distinction. It was awarded this honour due to its reputation for taste and quality spanning over 160 years in Newmarket and the traditional methods used. The authenticity of the Newmarket Sausage is guaranteed throughout the EU in just the same way as Melton Mowbray pies, Stilton Cheese and even Champagne!

It is made using prime cuts of free range British pork, combined with our secret seasoning which includes nutmeg and white pepper. This gives it a meaty yet succulent texture with a unique and distinctly spicy flavour.

Powters Sausages

All our sausages are hand crafted with care in small batches using traditional methods from minced free range British pork. This is combined with our own seasonings which are mixed by us and include a balanced blend of spices and herbs to perfectly complement each recipe. Our customers think that our sausages ‘Taste like sausages used to taste’ which is not surprising considering that many of our recipes date back to the nineteenth century! This is not to say we are not innovative too as we are continually seeking to improve and develop our range whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality for which we are famous.
