Cleveland, OH: The Sausage Shoppe, located on Memphis Avenue in Old Brooklyn, recently competed in the Product Competition at the 77th annual Ohio Association of Meat Processors (OAMP) convention. The convention was held in Columbus, OH from February 24-25, 2017.
The Sausage Shoppe received four awards: Grand Champion in the Meat Snack Stick category, Reserve Champion in the Specialty Class with an entry of Leberwurst Pate, First Place in the Restructured Jerky class, and First Place in the Loaf Class.
Snack Sticks are a hot growing segment at the The Sausage Shoppe, which now offers 15 flavors. The Pate and Beef Jerky have won multiple honors in competitions. The Shoppe entered their Dave’s Loaf, which is a blend of Italian sausage and seasonings, including crushed red pepper.
The Sausage Shoppe was represented at the convention by Carol Heinle, Proprietor, and Renee Close, Marketing Director. Both attended several educational sessions, networked with fellow meat store owners, and attended a trade fair to see new spice profiles and sausage making techniques and equipment.
