    Hi Debjk

    There is also one opposite Asda on the Queslett Road, Great Barr 'Warwick Brothers' butchers he makes syn free sausages. I do hope you can get some. You do have to order from this butcher though. One week in advance.

    Other wise the Aldridge one is on the bus route from Birmingham.

    hi everyone,

    i thought it would be a good idea to make a proper list of all the SW approved butchers that we know of, as they seem to be cropping up all over the place and although there are odd threads on the board we dont seem to have a comprehensive list anywhere? obviously feel free to correct me if im wrong :p

    i thought we could maybe do it by region? so north east, north west, midlands, south east, south west, wales, scotland, northern ireland, etc etc? (sorry if ive missed anyone out my geography aint all that good ;)) does anyone else think this is a good idea? we could all update it when we find one, similar to the way that challenges are run? this would mean that people from a particular area can look and find easily butchers in their local area, what do you all think? :) xx

    Hi, stupid question but how do we know when they're SW approved, For example, I walked by my local butchers yesterday and they we're advertising "extra lean minced beef", can I use this free on red and trust that it "is" extra lean? Also, I saw a thread yesterday about a SW approved butcher and the lady listed loads of tasty sausages that were syn free. I'd love to know if there's one in the South Nottingham area so if there is can someone pop it on Emma-louise's list. Thanks Emma.

    Sw has a rigorous (and expensive) accreditation scheme for any supplier wanting to sell syn-free" sausages. The product is tested and the butcher receives a certificate to put on display. So unless the sausages are specifically marketed as syn-free on SW and you can see the certificate then you have to syn them I'm afraid.

    If you google "slimming world butchers in (insert city/town name)", you may get a result.
    I did that and found 2 in Norwich I never knew about!
