Going out on a sunny day to a park or gardens with a picnic basket under your arm, ready to lounge on the grass and enjoy a meal in the great outdoors? Better make
sure your snacks include a ham sandwich, pork pies, or cocktail sausage, because 75% of British people feel that a picnic is not complete until it includes one or more of these pork treats. That’s why LovePork.co.uk has created a campaign to rename picnics to ‘PIGnics’.
If you are a pork fan and want to support the PIGnic campaign, you can join the Love Pork Facebook page, and download a receipe booklet from the website with tips for great pignic treats. Celebrities who are fans of Love Pork include Kate Walsh from The Apprentice, former swimmer Sharron Davies and former cricketer Phil Tufnell.
