British Designa Sausage

about the nutritional content of children's diets was
the motivation behind the launch of Designasausage,
a company that produces healthy-eating, home sausage
making kits, set up by mother and daughter team, Janet
Schuster and Gaynor Preece in 2003.
two young children were the inspiration behind this
enterprise. Clem, aged 4, is an asthma sufferer and
Gareth, aged 7, is prone to persistent eczema. Gaynor,
at her wits end with the usual prescribed remedies,
decided to see if a change of diet might help.
of the kids loved sausages, but when I tried to find
preservative and additive free sausages it was much
more difficult than I had imagined - so we started making
our own. Sausages are easy and fun to produce at home
once you have the equipment, and the end results were
so delicious that we decided to develop the idea into
a business venture! The kids had a great time helping
out, and we organised tastings with their friends, who
gave the thumbs up to all of the recipes that we now
offer our customers."
