Cotswold RAW is a premium pet food pioneer that’s never been afraid to take big brave steps into the unknown.
First there was a commitment to actively champion the Cotswold’s rural economy and the local farming community, followed by the creation of the first gastronomic ‘dog’ sausage to bring appetite appeal, portion control and convenience to the ‘nutritionally superior’ raw pet food category.
Further sector innovation has seen an active push to revive the fortunes of tripe, the often undervalued ‘superfood’ of the dog bowl and the creation of 2 flavoursome ‘Wild’ flavours that showcase the fantastic work of the humble gamekeeper (Rabbit & Venison and Duck & Venison) whilst providing an occasional timeout from traditional farmyard fayre.
This year sees Cotswold RAW enter its 80/20 Lamb Sausage, the time-honoured National Sausage Awards the culinary centrepiece for the Great British Sausage Industry, (National Sausage Week 29th Oct -4th Nov) not because we want humans dabbling with what are clearly pet-centric raw sausages, but to spread the word that our four-legged friends are just as entitled to celebrate National Sausage Week as us humans.
We hope that one or two of the esteemed National Sausage judges (with dogs) will be keen to trial our award-winning sausages, because surely one of the ‘wider goals’ of National Sausage Week is to broaden the appeal of the Great British banger and bring more committed ‘sausage lovers’ into the fold as well as get discerning independent food halls, farm shops, garden centres, delis to up their premium pet food offer.
