The Nuremberg Sausage Protection Association


“Nowhere else in the does a city identify itself so much with its own local sausage and is the sausage identified so much with home city as in Nuremberg"
Dr. Hartmut Frommer, former City Legal Director (retired

One for all. All for one.

Since the foundation of the Association in the year 1989 its members have been championing the pure taste of this little delicacy from their homeland. The tradition of manufacturing, as well as the formulation of the Nuremberg sausages, have been covered under the seal of the EU’s "protected geographical indication (PGI) scheme since 15th July 2003.

Quality needs protection

The Nuremberg Sausage Protection Association has two core tasks: On the one hand, the Association checks the geographical origin of sausages as being actually from Nuremberg as well as their adherence to quality and recipe standards and other typical characteristics of true Nuremberg sausages. On the other hand, it also conducts brand management activities and ensures that its brand awareness is increased in the wider population.
