Within just five years of trading, Good Game has won numerous accolades including six awards at the British Charcuterie Awards 2018, a coveted star from the Guild of Fine Food’s ‘Great Taste Awards’ for their organic pastrami, and double gold and double silver at Taste of the West.

Good Game endorses traditional methods of charcuterie, producing a vast range of products from nduja sausage and pastrami to terrine. Steve and Pete believe the secret to fantastic charcuterie is starting with exceptional pigs. A Good Game pig has been grown slowly, with plenty of space to roam. This increases the fat ratio, which makes for a more delicious result. They then treat their produce as naturally as possible; ensuring everything is handmade, nitrate free and cured with nothing but salt and natural air. This has proved to be a winning combination as they continue to go from strength to strength.


The judges said, “[Good Game showed] clear growth, strong brand, an admirable ethos and some seriously impressive business development five years into their journey.”

Co-owner, Steve Williams said: “The South West food and drink industry represents some of the most outstanding produce in the British Isles, so we’re over the moon to be recognised as our region’s best food and drink producer. We feel honoured to be amongst such an exceptional bunch of chefs, restaurants, producers and foodie hotels in the Exeter Living awards.”
