Nuremberg sausages Our quality product!

3 in a bun - Quality from Nuremberg

Even today, the City Council is strict in regulating the quality of "its" sausages. The fact that both a completely special recipe and production method must be followed for making Nuremberg Bratwurst and Rostbratwurst sausages, in accordance with traditional commercial practice and consumer expectations, was last laid down in the decision by Nuremberg City Council’s Committee on Legal Affairs, the Economy and Work on 18.03.1998 .

The imperial city of Nuremberg already had access to aromatic spices during the Middle Ages. This meant that making specialities such as the Nuremberg gingerbread Lebkuchen and Nuremberg sausages became established as hand crafting skills.


Our quality promise


Nuremberg Quality Seal

You can instantly recognise the genuine, fine quality “Original Nuremberg Rostbratwurst sausagesbecause they display the red Nuremberg Quality Seal.

Only the finest ingredients are processed to create a top quality product, and even today sausages may only be described as being “Nuremberg sausages” if they are made within the Nuremberg City using our specified recipe.




The best meat

Only fresh pork is used to make a Nuremberg sausage. There is no mixing of different types of meat here. Traditionally, pork shoulder, ham, pork cheeks and bellies are used to make the sausages.


Aromatic spices

Pork, salt, pepper and marjoram. These are the basic spices used in the Nuremberg sausages. Whether a pinch of allspice is added, perhaps a little mace or a hint of lemon, all these fine nuances are left to the individual butcher.


Fresh every day

The butchers of Nuremberg make their sausages fresh every day. Since the 1970s, they have also been able to satisfy the high demand or their sausages from outside of the Nuremberg city walls by using vacuum packaging. The short scalding process and the air-tight packaging allow these fine Nuremberg sausages to be enjoyed across Europe and even across the world while they are still fresh for even longer.


Strict quality controls

The entire production process - whether manual or industrial - is subjected to regular quality controls. External institutes check compliance with the defined ingredients and the production conditions. The responsible persons receive regular internal training to ensure that the entire production process -from the checking of the meat delivered to the factory right up to the packing of finished products- conforms the requirements of manufacturing a prestige product.


Gluten and lactose-free

The Nuremberg Rostbratwurst sausages are gluten and lactose-free and are therefore ideal for people with one of these food allergies or intolerances.
