We're proud to work with local suppliers like Plumgarths of Kendal to offer delicious local produce at our Kendal store.
Plumgarths of Kendal started making sausages in the back of a shop and now operate from a purpose-built production facility in Kendal where they produce over 100,000 sausages a week.
We started stocking their range at our Kendal store 15 years ago and have since launched over 30 assorted Plumgarths lines of sausages, burgers and pork products to 11 Asda stores in the North West.
Steve Chambers at Plumgarths said: “Plumgarths has enjoyed a great relationship with Asda over the past 15 years. The name gained established company status back in 2002 and ever since originally launching in the Kendal store we’ve seen amazing company growth as we continue to provide ethical and high-quality meat to customers across the North West.
“Plumgarths’ traditional Cumberland sausage was awarded PGI status giving it the same status and recognition within the EU as products such as Champagne, Parma Ham and Cornwall Clotted Cream!”
Traditional Cumberland sausages displaying the PGI mark will have been produced, processed and prepared locally in Cumbria.
The PGI mark certifies that the products contain at least 80 percent meat, with at least 20 millimetres thickness to achieve the characteristic coarse texture.
Asda Kendal store manager Mark Swift said: “Being able to work alongside local and ethical suppliers such as Plumgarths is becoming increasingly more important.
“It just goes to show how the brand continues to grow, especially as customers are more interested than ever in where, and how, their products are sourced.
“Companies like Plumgarths form the backbone of our communities, and we’re delighted to continue on the journey with them, just as we have done for the last 15 years!”
