Sausage and bacon sales dip

Supermarket - Sales of sausage and bacon fell - SantanderCB

Sales of sausage and bacon fell after processed pork was linked to cancer by the World Health Organisation. Supermarkets saw £3m wiped off sales in the two weeks after the report confirmed that eating a processed pork product every day increased the risk of bowel cancer. IRI Retail Advantage found that sales of pre-packed bacon fell 17% in the week after the report was published, while sales of sausages were down 15.6%. By contrast, Debbie Keeble of premium sausage brand Heck said the company had its 'biggest week ever' after the report came out.
