A Cullingworth butcher has scooped more awards.

Ellisons entered ten of its best-selling products in a regional meat trades contest – and won gold awards for all but two of them.

The BPEX north-east region Pork Products Excellence Awards in Harrogate attracted hundreds of entries from across the region.

“This was our best-ever performance and for eight of our ten entries to pick up gold awards was a real achievement,” said John Ellison, for the Halifax Road business.

“All the products can be bought in the shop on a daily basis. What we enter is exactly what we sell over the counter.

“Our continuing success in the meat industry awards arena reinforces our commitment to sourcing top-notch pork from Yorkshire pigs only. It’s our first competition success of 2014, but we’ll be going all out to win more as the year progresses.”
