Without a good sausage casing, you can’t have a good sausage.
At The New Zealand Casings Co our goal is to make the best sausage casings in the world, so that you can make the best sausages in the world.

Your sausage casing is what keeps all your carefully chosen ingredients, flavours and juices in and it also dictates the texture and eating experience of your final sausage. Sheep casings are less prone to chewyness than hog casings and have an amazing ‘semipermeable’ wall which breathes, meaning your beautiful bbq/cooking/smoking flavours can permeate the casing and infuse your sausage meat. The end result is a sausage with better flavour and juiciness, great sizzle and the much prized sausage “pop” that you can only get from a sausage made with a natural casing.

Perfect for first time sausage makers, our 20m/65ft ‘The Craftsman’ makes 6kg/13lb of sausages (approximately 100 sausages)
Our 40m/131ft ‘Home Pack Hero’ makes 12kg/27lb of sausages (approximately 200 sausages).
Perfect for those serious sausage makers, our 90m/98yds ‘Butchers Best Friend’ makes 28kg/60lb of sausages (approximately 460 sausages).

What sausages can I make?

Our casings are 24-26mm or 1″-1 1/16″ diameter (about the same size as a NZ $2 coin/US Quarter) making them ideal for any sausages including breakfast sausages, frankfurters, bratwurst, cabanosa, bratwurst, chipolatas, bockwurst, chicken, pork, venison, halal, bangers, snags, wieners, sossies, sausage rockets, weenies, franks…yep, pretty much anything you want to look or taste like a sausage. So go ahead, get stuck in and have some fun.

Storage Instructions. Please keep refrigerated.

Our casings are packed into a re-sealable pouch so you can use what you need and keep the rest for later. Our sausage casings are dry salted for preservation. They will last for at least 12 months as long as you follow the three golden rules 1) keep refrigerated 2) keep in an airtight container (or wrapped in clingfilm/gladwrap) 3) keep salted (if you have left over casing and have washed the salt off re-cover casing in standard table salt). We do not recommend freezing your casings.
