The Lincolnshire Sausage Association (LSA) submitted an appeal against the decision to reject the application to protect the name ‘Lincolnshire Sausage’ as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) on 14 June 2012. We are now giving careful consideration to the grounds of that appeal. Any reconsideration of our decision will depend on new evidence and information being provided by the LSA in its appeal.

We will write to the LSA to inform it of the outcome of our consideration of the appeal.
