Powters - celebrate their 136th Christmas!

The Christmas countdown is just beginning at Powters HQ, Christmas has always been the most frantic period of the year for us! We’ll pull out the stops to ensure that each and every one of our customers and fans get the sausages they deserve, on the Christmas table and at the Christmas party…

Our shop will be busy taking orders for Free Range Bronze Turkeys, grown and farmed just down the road from us at our farming friend Robbie Dennis of Stansfield Farm Turkey’s. Our butchers are hard at work hand trimming and choosing the Free Range pork, as we use traditional methods to do this and don’t use machines it makes for lots of hands on effort.
Last weekend we were busy out on the High Street in Newmarket handing free hot dogs to keep Christmas shoppers warm and raise some money for Help for Heroes too.
During the festive period we’ll order in many extra batches of extra Nutmeg and Pepper, draft in more helping hands and double our daytime number of deliveries to the supermarket distribution depot.
Here’s some facts and figures we’ve put together to show you just how many sausages we’ll be making in the 7 day run up to Christmas!
  • We’ll be making over 10 ton of sausages in weight!
  • If you lined up all these sausages that would be 20 km end to end!
  • During the 7 day run up to Christmas that works out as 200,000 individual sausages!
  • Chipolata’s and cocktail sausages are flying out the door at the moment, far more popular at Christmas, we do a pork and cranberry limited edition flavour available from our shop only!
  • Sausage meat orders are on the up, one of our largest customers orders over 1 ton of this just in the week before Christmas! We haven’t worked it out, but that would stuff a lot of turkeys!
  • Online orders of sausages, packed in ice and sent out next day delivery, will up significantly during this week so the shop will be busy organising and posting these out as web orders come through.
  • This year will be our 136th Christmas based in Newmarket and we’re now in the 5th generation of the Powter family!
